View Full Version : cross and main tensions

04-09-2008, 10:27 AM
I've been wondering for a long time which is more "correct" stringing your crosses higher or your mains, when using a hybrid. I know its dependent on strings.

Im currently using cf mains at 60 and wilson stamina crosses at 63. I plan on changing to pro supex blue gear mains and dunlop m-fil tour crosses. I plan on keeping the mains at the same tension. Should I increase or decrease the cross tension in relation to the mains?

Sorry this might be a dumb question but I coildnt find a solid answer, thanks for any help

That's because their isn't a solid answer.

It's personal preference. Anyone who gives you a solid answer is stating opinion.

I agree, it's highly subjective, what one prefers.

Personally I have my hybrid strung this way:

Crosses: Babolat VS Natural Thermogut 16 Touch 60 pounds/27 kg
Mains: Weisscanon Silverstring 1.20 64 pounds/29 kg
