    Hey,
    Well by now most people should be aware of luxilon's newest string 'Adrenaline'. From what I've heard its a really good string especially for its price. I was planning on buying a reel of Luxilon Adrenaline and Gosen OG Sheep Micro to hybrid. Adrenaline in the mains and Sheep Micro in the crosses, I usually string at 54-58lbs. I use Microgel Prestige MPPro.

    1) Is this a good hybrid or can it be?
    2) Any better alternative to Sheep Micro for crosses?
    3) What tension would you recommend I string at?

    Any extra info on the Luxilon Adrenaline would be well appreciated. Thanx

    Sorry I forgot one more thing, not sure which gauge to use, I was thinking 16 or 17 but any info to help make that decision would also be appreciated.

    Should be a good hybrid. If you break alot of strings beware of getting Adrenaline in 17. It broke on me 4 times in less then 2 hours.

    No not really. I bought 7 sets and the others lasted me around 4-6 hour of play. So that's an average of 3 hours a string job. Go with the 16. I've never tried it before so I wouldn't know its durability. I thought Adrenaline was a great string. I just don't feel like stringing a racquet everyday.
