View Full Version : Anyone try Gut mains/Recoil crosses hybrid?

Natural gut mains/Prince Recoil crosses.
I saw some old threads where this possibility was raised optimistically. I believe J011yroger suggested it might be the bomb for some players.
Has anyone gotten round to trying it? Impressions, reviews, rants?
How about powerful multi/syngut mains and recoil crosses?
Interested to hear how recoil crosses hold up in a hybrid.

C'mon now. There was a fair amount of discussion about his hybrid possibility about 6-9 months ago, but the threads trail off. Someone must have tried this?!

I guess I will have to boy up and try it.
Just that it an expensive experiment lol.

I 2nd that expensive part. Why not use any good poly like bb orig or cf for your cross
I tried recoil in exactly this combo. I did not like it at all. In fact, I didn't like anything about recoil. Seemed underpowered, questionable control on big cuts (in the mid 50's), touch/feel were nice but nothing to rave about.
I should state that my preference is gut mains and a decent lasting, somewhat forgiving poly in the crosses. I currently use WC SS strung at 55 lbs along with my gut mains. I'd use Lux if it lasted longer but the most I get is 4 hours and I'll be damned if I am going to restring that often, especially with gut mains.
