I'm about to order a PD Team (standard) and I want it to have hybrid stringing, but I'm not exactly sure what to get.

As for my game: I hit with a ton of topspin on my forehand (my two-handed backhand is flat) and I play an all-court style, so I need a good textured or thin poly for mains (that won't stretch too much) and a strong, but good/crisp feeling syn. gut or multi for crosses. I want this setup to be very durable because I break strings alot, but I also want it to feel good, not harsh.

Any suggestions about what strings to get and at what tension to string them?

Thanks

If you are ordering from TW, I would get Luxilon Alu Power Rough 16L Mains, and Prince Synthetic Gut Original/or With Duraflex 16 crosses.

Thanks for that suggestion. I was thinking about Alu Power Rough for mains before posting, just wasn't sure about crosses or tension.

Anybody have ideas for the tensions if I were to get a Alu Power Rough/Prince syn. gut hybrid?

How does the hurricane feel? Have you tried the 18g?

im using 17 pro hurricane with lw 17 right now... a bit harsh, but soft indeed, it will be better when i fray my lw and put xcel on it. then i will try vs :)

Now that I think about it, I don't want to make the PD too stiff (I demoed the racquet with Attraction 16g), so are there any very durable syn gut or multi strings that I could use for mains?

Babolat Excel 15L looks durable. I'm thinking about Babolat Hurricane 18g too.

Also, would I have good durability with VS Natural Gut 15L mains and poly crosses?
