i am about to buy a wilson nblade midplus and i don't really feel like just using regular old syn gut 16's.... so i want to try a new type.... i prefer a tension that is between control and power (maybe a little closer to power.) i want strings that have better topspin and feel that syn guts.... i was thinking getting the NXT 16's at 57 or so.... any suggestions are welcome and needed

also any hybrid combo that u think might help as i am completely lost when it comes to strings

you cant get both power and control out of your string setup. power requires elasticity of the string and spin comes from stiffness....those two don't mix together. your best bet is to try some hybrid of poly mains and some multi or gut crosses.

you might want to string your mains w/ alupower or some nice poly string and your crosses w/ some softer multi like xcel premium or gut .

thanks so a polyester main and gut cross... at what tensions do u think? power on the mains or crosses/ control on mains or crosses? i don't know much about strings so help is much appreciated
