I currently use the pro hurricane on my practice racquet, and I don't find enough spin that I would want. I've heard the Tour version has a lot of spin with power and when I break my strings I wanna have PHT in the mains but I'm not to sure what to have in the crosses.

Would wilson sensation be good because I have a spare set? The pro shop where I'm gonna get it strung at doesn't have a wide range of strings. No luxilon, sppp, natural gut, other good polys. The best poly they have should be the PHT.

Say I want the Hurricane tour at 55lbs, what tension should be on the crosses? Would 53lbs be a good choice because I like strings with low, mid tension range?

Use the Sensation. If you're stringing the PHT about 5 lbs less than a nonpoly then you might consider the senation at 60lbs.

When you run out of Sensation get some Gosen sheep 17 and use it on your crosses. Its cheap and it works.

I am going to hybrid it with babolat attraction.


I'll let you know how that goes.

Why 5 lbs difference?

with so many possible string combinations how does one find the right hybrid for them? I find it really hard to keep testing out different hybrids because its not exactly cheap.

i play hurricane tour with xcel crosses. makes the poly feel much softer. only problem is i've got where it only takes me about 10 to 12 days to break it.

Why do you have to hybrid if you haven't tried PHT all the way yet. I suggest you try that first, ugly colour but feels ok (better than ALU power) and certainly durable and no string movement it seems.

I am currently trying main - PHT 125 and crosses - Syntronic Brio 125 at 50 lb. Its much softer than the a full PHT but hybriding the PHT gives less bite of the ball.

I second this. Very spinny... I used 52/50lbs

I don't think it's ugly but silver, white, natural coloured strings definitely looks better. I want to try hybrid because it will be the first time I'm trying a hybrid. I just have a spare set of wilson sensation that I will be using, not giving away or selling it.

I forgot to ask something.

Since the hurricane tour has a lot more durability than the sensation would the crosses break first? I just think it would be weird because I've only broke mains before.

Alright the hybrid i had tried. Main PHT 62 & Syn Gut Crosses 62.
Felt awesome. Soft but not too soft. I had it put on the Pure Drive + and even thought i put high tension i still had balls flying out. I might need to work on my form when hitting. BUT i hear that the prob with pure drives + in general. Oh well now i will attempt to depower the damn stick.
