I am ordering the Wilson BLX Six.One 95 18x20, but I dont know which string to put in it. Any recommendations? I dont mind using a hybrid, but i dont want to use natural gut strings.

what are you currently using now? and what do you want from your new string?

right now im using the RPM blast but i dont really like it... its stiff and in a long match, my arm can get sore.. Also, i haven't found a string that i really like or would buy a reel of it... from all the strings I have had, I would say i probably liked the Kirschbaum Pro Line II 16 (1.30)

pl2 is a good string. it holds tension better than rpm blast, but you are not going go get as much "grab" or "bite" from pl2. the kirsch is also cheaper.

for a start take the pro line II but slightly thinner gauge as you have a pretty dense pattern on that stick.

i second going down a gauge on the pl2. i liked the 1.25 much better than the 1.30. you could try pl2 in a hybrid if the blast hurt your arm. the blast is kind of a "soft" string. you could hybrid with a syn......og sheep micro

maybe i will try the hybrid. a couple of my friends are telling me to try BHBR and SPPP? should i give those strings a try and what can i hybrid them with?

there are two threads about hybrids which might give you some inspiration:
pv audios playtest thread and mikeler's polys.

i am using pl2 in a full bed currently but i have also tried it in a hybrid with og sheep micro. I dont like hybrids so its had to give you an opinion of it. i have not tried sppp, but i herd the feel is a bit muted
