My full string is at 57 so yes that is good tension.

I've been using full Bab Hurricane Pro's (18) for about a year on all my rackets (Wilson nCode 6.1 90/95, Wilson 6.2, Vantage 90/95 and I love the smooth, solid feel of the strings. I've never played with the Oversize POG, but I have a midsize POG strung with the Hurricane Pro's (they are 16's or 17's I think) at 55, which seems too stiff. The POG's are pretty stiff rackets, so something closer to 52 or 53 I think would be better. I just had to experiment with different tensions to see which one I liked best. Currently I'm stringing my Wilson 6.2 at 53 (the 6.2 is pretty stiff too). It does make the racket a bit more powerful, but in return you get more feel and "dwell" time for placing the ball and better control. Good technique should keep you from overhitting.

Good luck! They are a great string.

I dont understand how people can play with full poly jobs....i always do hybrid. To me full poly kills the feel of the ball, is the reason for this because of the durability or do some people really prefer the feel of poly strings?? If poly is strung very low does it play in anyways gutlike? I kind of want to try this, but im hessitant i wont like it.

I'm using Pro Hurricane Tour mains at 53lbs and Gosen OG Sheep Micro crosses at 61lbs in my Head Flexpoint Radical Tours and it feels fantastic. A full Pro Hurricane Tour setup didn't feel nearly as crisp as the hybrid.

That sounds like an interesting hybrid.. I might have to try it next time.

I've played with full gut and hybrided gut and I guess I'd have to say it didn't seem that much better than using full poly's, but the only two poly's I have tried is Luxilon BB Ace and the Bab Hurricane Pro's. The Lux's kept wearing out in about 2 weeks (I play about 3-4 days a week/6-8 hours). The Hurricane Pro's last me at least a month or six weeks, just depending. The Luxilon's have more of a "gut" feel to them. I just personally like the Pro's better because it is a more subtle feel (and I mute my rackets down quite a bit too). I find the Pro's give me a very precise feel, plenty of control while feeling very stable, smooth and solid. I also like having the strings stay put - so gut and other synthetics just move around too much - the Pro's hardly move at all if any; so I'm sold!

TW has the Pro's for $8.95 a set. Just buy a couple sets and give them a try - it's the only way to find out unless you know somebody using them.

Good luck!

Thx for the feedback Ripper, i should string at a lower tension correct? I usually string my polys in my hybrids at 59-60, the Nat gut usually around 57. If i were to use a full poly job what do you recommend dropping by? 55? 54?

Hi, yes 53, 54 - maybe just for an experiment and see how you like it. I can get my racket strung for $10 (plus the string), so at most I have to restring a second time to get the best tension - and go up or down by at least 2 lbs. to feel the difference. I got onto this when I read Federer was sometimes stringing at Wimbledon at 48 lbs! That's pretty darn low, in other words, he would be getting a lot of power from his strings and racket. I have been a convert to lower tensions ever since. It does require good enough technique to keep the ball in!
