I've ordered both HUrricane Pro 17 and Alu Power rough and I'm gonna hybrid with Wilson NXT Tour 17.
Which tensions should I have??

i think for a hybrid somewhere just above the midpoint of the tension range works very well in that racket

okay, I told him to string a pound less on the poly, should I have a little looser on the mains?

Tighter NXT tour on the crosses, looser polys on the mains is usually the standard setup.

string the poly 10% lower than your crosses, because polys need to be 5-10% looser tension compared to synthetic guts and multis. If you were to string your NXT Tour at 60 lbs, your poly mains would be strung at 54-56

That is a great combo in that stick. I played with the Rad Pro with that exact setup a few weeks back and the spin and control was really nice. You're gonna like it. :)

hanks for great answers guys!


It was an awesome combo=) Got some supersweet spin at the serve and felt much better on my arm then when playing Cyperflash and BBO both ways!

Strung the mains PHT at 25,5 kgs and the NXT crosses at 26kgs. Im not to fumiliar with pounds but I do felt it was a bit tight strung. So should I loosen just the mains or go down on both?

you must string PHT 10% looser than NXT, because it is a poly. You must string polys 10% looser tension, but I dont know the conversion between pounds and kgs, sorry.

oki, Ill go a little lower on the poly should be great. Whats imporant is that it was even nicer playing than I thought. I tried a ful NXT setup and alot of different all polys before this to have something to campare to but Išll do hybrids from now on!

Maybe, ....
but not the full 10% in the mains since they are longer, especially if he is already going lower on the nxt because it is a cross. That 10% only works for comparing the tightest string in a full syn or multi set up, and even then you don't use it on all polys. I only drop BA by 2lbs or about 4%.

If it was too tight, just drop them both about a half a Kg
