Hi guys - wondering if some of you could recommend a good hybrid for me to string my prince hybrid tours (18X20 pattern) with. I am just coming off of major wrist surgery and need something forgiving. I've been using Big Banger rough and Babolat VS. Should I stick with these and change the tensions? What would you recommend to string the racquet with and at to be easy on the wrist. If it helps, I'm a 5.0 girl who likes to bang it out from the baseline. Thanks for the help!

use a soft multi or gut. forget the poly for now. the hybrid tour is a relatively stiff frame. you need something to absorb shock. good thing is the 18x20 pattern will help string durability.

i'd recommend babolat's new excel, tecnifibre nrg, or natural gut.

GIRL?! ;)

I'd say, stay away from polys and use a multi.
Babolat VS. with X-1 biphase is a nice combo

My combo would be Gamma asterisk tour and wilson nxt. Gamma being the mains and Wilson being the crosses.

Asterisk Tour is a nice string it holds it's tension well and it's a multifilament string with poly fibers. So it should be easy on your wrist and such
