Finally a string that plays similar to Isospeed Black Fire but with much better comfort! Perfect for players who use a stiff frame but don't want to play a multifilament. For me this is the best poly currently on the market!

Played indoors but not for long. I didn't feel well with this string as I did not have sufficient control. I gave the Cream two chances. Both times I was disappointed by the control level. Power, comfort and feel were very good. But control also affects feel. So be careful. For me this is not an option. I will stick with the hybrid combo Isospeed Control+ / WeissCannon Silverstring 1.20.

Comparison relates to WeissCannon Silverstring 1.20. The Silverstring provides much better control and feel.

Strung as a hybrid with Isospeed Control+ croses. This combo provides better spin than the Control+ alone, but control is not necessarily better. It does feel more crisp though. There is almost no string movement, in contrast to a full Control+ stringbed, especially in my 16x19 pattern.
Power was different from the full Control+ job. The hybrid combo Isospeed Black Fire / Control+ provided better power. Which is surprising since the Cream is more elastic than the Black Fire. At least according to the marketing claims :)
Anyway, since I'm a multifilamen fan, I will stick with the full Control+ stringbed for this season.
If you are looking for a very soft poly, though, you will probably like the Isospeed Cream.

Played in a hybrid with Control+ crosses, thus my comparison to the full Control+ stringbed.
This poly was certainly the softest I have ever played in a hybrid. But power was lower than the Control+. I seem to be a multifilament lover. But if you are looking for a soft hybrid that provides better spin than the Control+ alone, you will definitely like this one. I think the marketing claims are okay.
