Recently my son has changed his hybrid around to Klip armour pro natural gut mains and pro hurricane tour cross. I am a bit puzzled as to why the poly cross keeps breaking before the gut is it possible that i have a dud reel of hurricane tour?

could have been a bad string job, but usually crosses creak first.
also, pht is a pretty soft string imo

Is it shearing at the frame (mishit)?

No the poly has broken in the sweet spot on three restrings after about 8hours of play the gut is less than half worn through

It's actually not such a rare occurrance. You'll find a lot of the guys on the boards manage to break poly crosses before gut mains. Just happens to be the way he hits the ball.

um... What?! I think I had to re-read that twice. PHT, as in Pro Hurricane Tour, the yellow stuff a soft string?!?! What's a hard/stiff string if PHT is soft?
