im gona use luxilon big banger ace 18 and x one biphase 17 on my yonex nano speed rq 7. Which one do you recommend i put on mains and crosses and should i differ the tension between the 2 at all?

Thanks

I'd start out with the Luxilon in the mains, and the Tecnifibre in the crosses. However, depending upon your game, they can be adjusted accordingly. I really don't think that there would be a need to differentiate the tension between the two.

Thanks for the quick reply, ill most likely try that, anyone else?

BTW, i have a topspin forehand and a mostly flat backhand, rarely break strings, and am looking for lots of spin, and some good feel.

thanks, and does anybody actually use a synthetic or natural or multi on the mains and poly on the crosses? I mean, what would be the effects of it compared to poly mains and gut crosses? Thansks again

I agree with tt91. Because theres no reason in keeping the Luxilion in the crosses, that would just make the hybrid pointless. Just use your normal tension.

Same, but I would put the crosses at 5% less tension then the mains.

I, myself use VS Natural Gut in the mains, and Luxilon ALU Rough in the crosses, but that's at a lower tension in my nCode Tour 90. That's for the specific purpose of more spin/control and better feel.

Tension differences between mains and crosses might resolve themselves. Perhaps tighter strings carry more impact load and lose tension at a higher rate.
