I'm planning on trying some hybrid strings because I'm always breaking mains and was wondering what string gauge most people use.

I'm planning on trying some hybrid strings because I'm always breaking mains and was wondering what string gauge most people use.

What I use:
#1 - 17g poly mains - 16g gut cross
#2 - 17g poly all around
#3 - 18g kevlar - 16g syn. gut cross
#4 - 16g syn. gut all around

currently 18 and 17.

Another vote for 18/17 hybrid.

I use 18/16...

But with my new set, its 17/17

I like to have good feel and feedback from my strings and like to use the thinnest possible gauge on the mains, with a similar or slightly thicker cross. My idea setup would be 19/17. A 19 main is only possible with aramids. For polys, the thinnest would be 18 or 17L.

I usually have 17g crosses with whatever gauge mains I'm using. One racquet has 16g gut, the other has 17g RedCode that I wanted to try. I'll probably go with 17g gut and 17g crosses - perhaps getting another racquet to string an 18g poly in.
