    So I recently asked about and tried out the Topspin Cyber Flash and it didn't really do it for me. So I'm planning on using a Lux Big Banger Rough and Prince Synthetic Gut hybrid in my BLX 6.1 95 18x20. I would like to get peoples opinion on whether I should have the Lux in the mains or the crosses and why? And also, what tension should I should string the mains and crosses at?

    I used to play with PH at 60 lbs, Prince Topspin at 63 lbs, and recently the CyberFlash at 57 lbs.

    I play a baseline oriented game, but will come to the net here and there.

    * Or should I use the lux in a full bed?

    Lux in the mains. Having the crosses as lux doesn't make too much sense for a baseliner game, as the bed will feel pretty much like a syn gut bed.

    I agree...also i'd consider some other crosses as well. Gosen always a favorite here...and personally i like to find thicker 15L strings. you're paying a lot for the lux, might as well get some more durability, if it doesn't go dead first.

    If full poly isn't too tough on your arm, then i 100% recommend lux in a full bed. i love lux full bed, freshly strung... amazing pop, feel and spin. but this isn't worth arm pain and post-match icing (WELL, unless its an important match! hahaa)

    How would Prince Topspin 15L work in the crosses? It's make up is nylon, which is similar to synthetic gut I think.
