Just bought ALU and want to know if cheap syn gut for crosses would be ok?

I really don't want to use expensive strings for the crosses since ALU is already expensive enough for me. I use cheap syn gut ($3) a job so this is already too expensive already!

What do most ppl do with ALU? No one actually strings the whole racket with ALU do they?

If you go with a hybrid, I would use a basic syn gut. My preference is the Klip Synthetic Gut. Good string, great price.

I use Gosen OG Micro generic from a reel(bought from TW).

Yes, I used Gosen OG Sheep Micro 17g yesterday... Generic but works great... I might use it with the ALU packs I have left over... You might want to use 16g though ALU is though on strings... it ll chop the heck out of that 17g, I herd people say the 16g tend to snap during stringing... Dont know... never tried that stuff...
