Personally, I can't really tell the difference between Tonic and VS gut when in the same gauge. The 17g vs definetly is best but the 16g vs feels the same to me as the 16g tonic.

That being said, When I do a gut hybrid, I use it on the main (usually tonic)with a soft multi. Personally, I find some of the cheaper multis play just fine in hybrids.

So tonic and prince SG (the soft version is my favorite) or the OG sheep works well. I also like super fineplay.
