    As the title says, has anyone played with a gut/poly hybrid with the Alien Black Diamond strings in the crosses? The Alien seems to hold tension well, and seemed to me to have some unique properties in the surface of the string which might or might not make it an excellent cross with gut.

    alien is a great string. It holds tension very well, but after those first couple of hours playability is not so great. It becomes way to powerfull.
