    Hi...first post/thread on the boards so please excuse any faults !

    I am looking for a hybrid set up for my Babolat Pure Storm GT (16x20)

    I am using VS gut 17 for the Mains and looking for a poly for the crosses that will help generate spin (although from my reading, the crosses don't really generate the spin.....and......if I get a shaped or textured string in the cross, I might lose friction and/or cut into the gut mains).....

    I love the feel of the gut so I am hesitant to o with the poly in the mains w/ gut crosses.....so I feel like I am either stuck without a solution or looking for something that doesn't exist.

    Thanks !

    Any smooth poly could be suitable for a cross with gut mains. Use what you're familiar with since it'll at least give you something to work off of.

    A few popular crosses are:
    Weiss Canon Scorpion
    MSV Co-focus
    LXN 4g
    Weiss Canon Silverstring
    Solinco Outlast
    Signum Pro Poly Plasma

    Will these provide any additional spin vs gut ?
    If not, what (aside from cost) would be the benefit of using a poly in the cross ?

    Thanks

    Look for smasher's thread on pacific classic and co-focus. You'll get tons of info from there.
