I want to know as much as i can about hybrids strings, because im planning to play with hybrids strings and i want to make sure i don't make a real crappy combination.
I want to know should you match strings like multifilament with multifilament? or whatever.

I was planning on doing yonex tour super 850 with luxilon something ( i dont know much about luxilon)

also tension how do you know which tension to put on switch?

I would definately do a search. There is a ton of info on hybrids on these boards.

This really depends on how you play. Many people love the control and spin of a poly/gut cross, some love the softness and feel of a gut/multi hybrid. Polyester/Syn Gut, blah blah blah. Tell us more about your play style, and that will help people make suggestions.

From experience, do not use a poly and mutifilament together, the poly will saw through the mutifilament and will break fast.

Would poly saw through Natural Gut ?

I'm playing with Nat. Gut on Main and Poly on Crosees, do you recommend string savers ?

I use BDE Preformance and a synthetic gut cross. I use string savers at the first sign of a fray...

I tried Nat/Alu Power hybrid on
LM Prestige
Ncode Tour 90

Both got more power in every category. It had a nice feel to it also. Durability was ok.

I've had execllent results with nat gut mains and some kind of monofilament synthetic in the crosses. Typically, VS or BDE gut, and Gosen JC (for a firmer feel) or TNT (softer).

You've never tried nat gut mains? Well you're in for a treat, I reckon.
