Congrats. Everyone should try gut at least once.

I suggest doing one racquet first and see how you like the tension.
What racquet do you have? what have you liked before in terms of strings and tension.

If you play with what your username suggests I would start at around 61 Gut and 58 or so Syn gut crosses. I use a similar racquet (Wilson HPS 6.1) and love it like this.

Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

better with a poly in the crosses, more control of that powerful Vs and a little more spin. noticable on serve. Alu rough deffo the best but cuts thro gut in a very short time, otherwise a greasy poly like Polystar energy.

Agreed - once you try - you may never find another combo you like, I would rec String Savers and you'll get twice the life of the job...

I just strung up my second NG hybrid try - Prince NG 17 w/ Lux Ace crosses - my last try before either resorting back to Bab NG or Prince NG mains w/ Duraflex crosses...
