Not sure about hybrids, I've yet to try one that has more spin than poly.
From my experience, I liked full poly... if it was relatively soft... ALU Power or softer and I am happy.

For maximum spin not using kevlar, i dont think a hybrid would be the best. But before anything, do you have a price limit?

i'll go out on a limb and recommend Cyberflash mains with Prince syn.gut duraflex crosses. For both of the strings use 17g, and it should give u pretty good spin.

The reason being that both these strings are low-powered, but still not as stiff as kevlar. Both are also durable and easily affordable.

Any other suggestions?

Blue Gear mains with something like LaserFibre Classic syn gut in the crosses.

Well hybrids are known to break faster. Id just try full poly again just to see how long itll last because just one try isnt very reliable

Anyone play with the standard combo of Babolat PHT and Excel?? I just bought a pair on my PDR strung at 60lbs.

Well if u dont want kevlar then a full poly job is the next best thing.

If u insist on using poly, my stringer was talking to me a few weeks ago about how he strung this guy's racquet for durability. He used a very stiff poly in the mains, like Luxilon Alu Power or PHT 16 and a slightly softer poly in the crosses, Cyberflash, Signum Pro or Pro Supex.

This one's still good for durability and spin, and it's still a hybrid :)

I use this:

Excellent feel and cupping, with good spin. Durability is average for a gut hybrid. Its the feel thats hooked me on them.

look dont listen to all the other people.

the most amazing spin/dura combo is:
Mains: MSV focus hex 1.23
cross: MSV focus hex 1.10

your ball will jump off the court like nadal

And we should listen to someone preaching about using a thin hex string, in the crosses ?

Look at ALU, or one of it's softer or thinner copies.
