    I have never strung with a hybrid before and after seeing how many pros do I feel it would be a good idea for me to do so. what kind of string do any of you recommend? I noticed that alot of you recommend Pro Hurricane for the mains, but if you could give me some suggestions for mains and crosses i would appreciate it. Just so you kno, i use a PD + and serve and volley frequently and could use a little more control on my one hand backhand --and my forehand for that matter too.

    It varies. A lot of people hybrid Poly mains with a softer cross to take away the harsh feeling that a full poly string job gives. If you don't break strings, there's really no reason to go with this hybrid. Another popular hybrid is natural gut mains with synthetic crosses. It almost keeps the same feel as a full natural gut string job and easier on the wallet. As a S&V player, I would imagine that you're looking for a setup that gives you a good amount of feel. If you can afford it, I'd recommend trying a natural gut hybrid with PSGDF crosses.

    I use Babolat Tonic + in the mains and Luxilon BB Orig. in the crosses. It plays incredible.

    I would have to agree with the first reply. If you are looking for something more durable with a good amount of playability, you should do a poly on your mains and a gut on the crosses. If you are not a big string breaker the natural gut on the mains with a synthetic feels awesome. It ay take a couple hybrids to figure out what you are comfortable with.
