I'm currently using Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power. I'm thinking of trying a ybrid with Alu mains and gut crosses. Which gauge should I go for; I know that the thinner the string the more feel and touch, and the thicker the string the more durable it is, but as a general rule, you break strings in the mains, so if I string gut in the crosses, it won't break. Yes? If it won't break, then a thin gauge would be best wouldn't it? Any other advice would be handy, like where I can get the wax for gut and when to use it. Thanks.

I'd use one of the Bow, BDE or Pacific value priced nat gut strings for this, not the premium stuff. If you want a softer feel and more power use the 17g. Otherwise, use 16g.

IMO it is pretty much a waste to use gut in the crosses of a hybrid like this unless you dont care how much your stringjobs cost. a soft syn like alphagut might do the trick. ed
