Your poly should be around 54 lbs.

I tried babalot pro hurricane 17 as mains and Dunlop Max comfort 17 as crosses in a LM Radical OS. It didn't feel like I had power. I then tried Klip Synthetic Gut 17 with Pro Hurricane 17 and felt I gained power over the Dunlop Max Comfort. I think the max comfort was too soft, at least for me. According to the Babalot website, "Main functions of main strings:- Durability- Generate Spin ; Main functions of cross strings:- Power- Comfort". It may pay to keep that in mind when selecting your crosses. So far I like Gosen OG-Sheep Micro 17 best for crosses and Gosen Polylon Comfort 17 best for the mains .

You should try a primarily solid core string for the crosses. The softer multifilament strings like the max comfort will get chewed up by a stiffer string very quickly.

I'd suggest PSG or PSGD for crosses to start, and string the mains at about 56 with the crosses at 59 and see how that plays for you. If nothing else, it will give you a good and standard basis to go somewhere else.
