I have decided i am going to string my Dunlop Aerogel 200s with Pro Supex Blue Gear in the mains but i am not sure what to put in the crosses or should i go for a full Blue Gear ? Also i am not sure what string tension to have i usually have my rackets strung at 58 but would it be any different with the Pro Supex Strings ? (I am 15, a agressive baseliner who hits with a fair bit of power and spin, slightly small for my age)

Thanks in Advance !

I just tried Full Blue Gear 17g at 65 lbs. It was definitely too tight, and I could not get enough power from the set up. The spin, however, was phenomenal. I just needed more time to set up to get enough power on my 2hbh. I am going to try hybriding it. I want to keep the control and spin capabilities, and just add a little power as well.

It depends what you are looking for... are you stringing w/ blue gear to get the maximum amount of spin possible? do you want a lot of spin with a decent amount of touch?

and another factor for your crosses might be whether you break strings a lot or not

No i have only broke a string once i had, had the racket for about 1 year and a half lol :oops:
I want to get a fair bit of touch with a bit of power if that helps

In that case, go for a hybrid of BG on the mains and a softer string such as a synthetic gut on the crosses.

This is the same setup I have on my AG200 with BG mains @ 58lbs and Spiral Flex crosses @ 60lbs to give a balance of power and control. Plus the colour combination looks awesome on the Aerogel 200!!! :)

Full Blue Gear in an Aerogel 200 18x20 at around 60lbs is probably my favorite setup for baseline bashing.

jono... with BG 1.23 (haven't tried it [1.23] yet ;) )... what would you cross it with (in a hybrid) and what gauge? ~ i would like some spin from the BG but not the stiffness... should i cross with a multi and keep the BG tension low?

I would be more inclined to cross it with a solid core nylon such as a syn gut or better still, a durable syn gut such as Spiral Flex.

Once you hybrid Blue Gear, the "stiffness" doesn't become as pronounced, so I wouldn't drop BG to a low tension. I'd string it at the normal tension you usually would. Just to give you an example, if I usually string full BG at 58, I would string a BG/Spiral Flex hybrid at 58/60lbs. The higher tension on the crosses would help maintain the stiffness of the stringbed and prevent the mains from going soft too soon.

Im using 17 on both the mains and the crosses
it feels amazing when you really hit with it
