Anyone uses Poly Flex and if so how does it compare to ninjaflex, both in softness and strenght, ease and reliability of print and lack of grief?

I 've tried filaflex recreus, semiflex nijatek, flexfill form futura, nGen flex but not polyflex nor ninjaflex

Following this table, polyflex seems closer to semiflex than ninjaflex

In my opinion, polyflex is easier to print out compared with ninjaflex. But not as soft as ninjaflex.
Haven't compared the strength before.

I prefer PolyFlex to NinjaFlex, as I found it much easier to print (stock extruder). They are both very, very durable as long as your print temperature isn't too low. Ninja is a little bit more flexible than Polyflex, but with most parts, you can achieve the desired stiffness by playing with the number of shells and infill percentage anyways.

That said, upon recommendation in another thread on this forum, I tried Sainsmart TPU. I find that it's at least as good as PolyFlex, and is half the cost.

In both cases, I use the Raise3D default settings for PolyFlex. I think I also turned the cooling fan on at layer 2.
