Ok, I hae been using Luxlion Big Banger ALu power, And I love it, I just started using a Head Liquid MetalPrestige Mid and I want to put ALu with something else on the crosses or mains any suggestions?

Question: do people usually put the durable string on the crosses?

Durable strings on the mains. I would suggest putting synthetic gut on the crosses like Gosen Sheep OG.

soft - the whole pt of doing hybrid with ALU....
cross/main - is up to which characteristic you want. (80/20 rule - main gets 80% of the overall feel)

i personally like the VS Touch on mains - the string bed has gut qualities with the confidence from poly that i can swing for the fences..

Use it in the mains; you'll get the more durability and spin.

For crosses, your first choice should be a natural gut. If it's too expensive for you, (nearly 30 dollars a set and easily broken) use a soft multifilament or synthetic gut.

Search similar threads and you'll get a good idea of what cross strings are best for you.
