Ok, so we know that Federer uses the ALU Power Rough crosses, and Vs Team Natural on the mains. But is the tension set up even throughout the head. Because I wanna set this up on a LM Prestige MP, so do I go to my stringer and give him the two hybrid sets and just give him one tension #, or can you tell him to set the crosses at a different tension than the mains. And if so, any suggestions as to what tension I should set if they both can have seperate tensions? Originally I was thinking about having a tension of 62 or higher if I didn't go with a hybrid, since I'm a hard hitter and need some more control. Thanks in advance.

I strung ALU Power Rough (main) and Vs Team (cross) at 58lbs/62lbs on Wilson N61 16x18. On prestige you might want to lower 1 or 2 lbs.
I also strung VS team in the main before, however it only lasts less than 2 hours.

I just strung one of my Vantage 90" with Lux BB Alu hybrid @50lbs just, its winter so the balls are HEAVY, and its playing really nicely!

Shouldn't you go with more tension on the crosses? I'm curious how it felt...

From where I'm getting it from, the combo only costs $38.25, and I've heard its pretty durable too. So, whether its worth the price is for you to decide.
