View Full Version : Hybrid Strings....Help!

Ok...I've been wondering...

Which is the best hybrid?

Natural in mains and synthetic in crosses right?

Or Poly in mains and synthetic in crosses?

I'm confused!

Which one is better?

And is Wilson Champions choice or Baboly Hybrid Hurricane Tour better?


I need some good hybrid mixes!

Hybrids can be a combination of different strings.
I use a combination of Poly in the mains and a Multi in the cross.
It really depends on your style. Some people like to have gut in the mains and a poly in the crosses vis versa.

PHT- longer lasting string. Great durability and performance
BB- really fantastic string for a couple hours give or take a little bit.

But which is better? Or more promising?

Better doesn't exist here.

You have to find it. So do as Cole Porter says, "Experiment."

(Though I think he was talking about something else. :D)

I think that I've seen someone on this forum say either nxt on the mains and luxilon on the crosses or the other way around. Can anyone confirm this combo is good?

I've only tried poly mains and synth crosses. But lots of people gush about gut mains in a hybrid. So there really must be something to it. See lots of posts about VS and Lux or VS and almost anything . . . you name it

I'm gonna try a poly and gut hybrid.

What's best? I think that depends on what you want.

The hybrid that gives you the most feel is the best. You'll be more consistent.

you should experiment yourself. i play with pro supex big ace on mains and syn gut titans on the crosses. pro supex strings are good to experiment with because their prices are great. hope that helps

Champions' Choice will be the more popular choice, but your choice will be what feels better for YOU. experiment.

...or put it this way. Soft string for feel, comfort, power. Stiff string for spin. Combine what you want. and research.
