Which Multi do you guys find is the best for a Hybrid set up with Poly and do you always put the Multi in the crosses and Poly in the mains, or ever reverse it?

I have tried several, here are some favorites
Gosen OG sheep if you like a crisper feel
NRG2 if you are looking for a bit more power and comfort
Yonex Super 850, a very nice comfortable string
Tecnifibre multi-feel for a good economical string
Forten Sweet, very economical and to really soften up the string bed.

I'm a natty gut mains fan, so I always hybrid with multi mains, when I use a multi.

Poly fans will prefer the multi in the crosses for less soft feeL and better control.

My favorite multi hybrids are:

ALL TIME FAVORITE - but can't buy this multi anymore :(
A1: Laserfibre Supernatural Gut Prostock 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses.

So my favorites among those I can buy:

1. X-One 18 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
2. X-One 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
3. Xcel Power 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
4. Xcel Power 16 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
5. X-One 16 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
6. NRG2 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses

Some people put poly in the crosses. Federer does it. Offers the soft feel / power of the gut while maintaining the control of poly. Biggest downside is that it breaks almost as fast as a full bed of multi or gut. That is why its pretty uncommon for those who use poly.

NXT doesn't get much love here on the boards...guess its a bit more expensive, but definitely feels crisper, better control and feel
