I'm gonna string my racket with babolat tonic 16 crosses and was wondering what string i should hybrid it with. I'd like these strings to be durable, hold tension well, and move little. Any suggestions?

Try either Hurricane or Luxilon BB Alu-Power

Why use gut as crosses??? The majority of your playability comes from the mains and if I were opening the coffers for gut, I would want the full benefits and at least string them in the mains. To lessen the expense you can use a synthetic gut cross, like PSGD or I have found Alpha Gut 2000 (with a pre-stretch) does a good job in hybrid with natty gut. I don't recommend a poly hybrid with gut. (Another topic for another day!) And I especially don't recommend using gut as a cross in hybrid with poly. In my opinion a total waste of money for recreational and club level players.

Truth is I would suggest you forget the hybrid idea and go full gut. That is ultimately going to be the sweetest set-up.

pure luck
