Anybody can recommend a decent hybrid with Big Banger Ace on the mains ?
I'm thinking to put a multifilament on the crosses and string them something like 53/55 ?

Any folks out there that use this ?

Thanks.

Go thin on the Ace (18 or 17L) and put a thick soft multi like TF NRG2 16 in the cross. Your tension range seems about right...

i'd pick TF x1 biphase over NRG2 because it doesnt fray like NRG2

I used an ace/timo hybrid. It was amazing!! Very soft feel and very durable with insane spin potential.

an ace/timo hybrid sounds awesome but a poly/poly wont enough feel for all courters. probably great for baseliners

That combo sounds about right, if not a little low in tension for me.

BB ace only comes in a 18 gauge, i found that putting a syn. or multi with a poly ruins the poly.You dont get the extra bite + spin that all poly gives you.It will give you more comfort + control but it really diminishes the poly affect.

Here's a change of pace. I put the Ace 18 on the crosses with NXT 17 on the mains. Had this at 60lbs for both on a PDR to control the power. Plan on doing the same to a Speedport Black but at 56lbs each.

Thanks.

BB Ace on mains at 53
Wilson Sensation at 55

I will put this on a K90 Tour racquet so I'm looking for spin fro the poly, power and feel from the multi.

Here you have a thin strong string against the string that I would rate to have the worst durability. I can see the Sensation's durability letting you down.

Then, it's a waste of a stringjob.

Is the Sensation that bad ? I don't play with it regularly but I just bought one.

i've tried ace with a babolat conquest 17 cross hybrid. great bite and spin on the ball. keep in mind ace is 18g and will break quickly if you put a lot of spin on the ball - especially with an open pattern frame

I have tried BB Ace with Gamma Live Wire 16, and that combo is by far my favorite over Duralast/Nxt, Alu16/Biphase, and CyberFlash/Wilson Extreme Syn Gut. ;)
