I have been playing a year and I have been using the Wilson Pro Staff Rok 93 strung with Babolat Tonic ball feel (16) at 53 lbs.
I am thinking of going to 57 lbs or alternatively to use hybrid, natural gut for the mains at 57 lbs and poly for the crosses @ 53 lbs...

What are your thoughts on that?
I would like to gain a bit more control without sacrificing much power.
I have been avoiding any kind of poly because of the fear for possible TE...

PH tour 125 (17) with VS natural gut 130 (16).
Should poly and gut have the same gauge size?

No one ever played with that racquet to suggest any stringing set up?

I own one, but it gets very limited use at the moment, so I can't tell you anything of much use.

All I can say is that I can't imagine it being nice to hit with if you used a poly. The stringbed is, as you know, beyond dense.

So you'd recommend me stay with Babolat Tonic or any other natural gut and avoid hybrid with poly?

Gut, unfortunately, is simply out of my budget. Most recently, I've been using Tecnifibre NRG2 in 17 gauge, strung around 57/58 lbs. I simply love it. Nice pop, decent string life, great feel throughout, especially right about when it's ready to pop :( Used to play with Gamma Live Wire, but felt it went dead pretty quick. Not so with the Tecnifibre.

I know Rok is not a very popular racket in these boards but I won't abandon NG for something like multi. I'd go to hybrid (NG/poly) maybe for better durability and control but maybe it is too much for a underpowered Rok?
I may try to string the Tonic a bit higher @ 57lbs.
