Just don't expect that setup to last you too long - the Lux mains are going to saw through gut crosses.

yeah most of them hybrid with these strings....personally i like the feel and pop from gut mains and poly crosses...but using the poly mains and gut crosses are for more durability...

I use full gut. Tried the luxilon mains and gut crosses. I didn't like it, and switched back to full gut. It killed my arm after 1 hour. I did suffer from tennis elbow a couple of years ago, and it came back.

Actually, it differs from person to person, because for me, I broke my poly/gut setup faster when I had gut mains, instead of having them in my crosses.

"alot of players" usually arent trying to make their racquets last more than a couple days, and they have like 8 of them. (if you are refering to pros)

No, The Lux mains break first. Alu mains and vs crosses last about as long as full alu with the lux mains breaking.

Unless you have a severe defect in your swing, mains don't do any sawing.

Having tried more than a few stringing combinations, I've basically come to the conclusion that hybrids are really about making your mains stiffer/softer relative to the crosses, depending on taste. You could do the same trick with differential tensions.

Now, different hybrids will have different longer term playability/durability characteristics, and you might stumble on a better sweetspot size/control level/power level for you personally, but in my mind that's really all there is to it.

For me personally, I was mildly disappointed in my poly mains/natural gut crosses hybrid. The feel and comfort are better, but it just didn't convey the same sense of confidence as full poly.

I wonder why people use Lux ALU, when there's Cyber Flash, out there.
