    Which Multi do you guys find is the best for a Hybrid set up with Poly and do you always put the Multi in the crosses and Poly in the mains, or ever reverse it?

    I have tried several, here are some favorites
    Gosen OG sheep if you like a crisper feel
    NRG2 if you are looking for a bit more power and comfort
    Yonex Super 850, a very nice comfortable string
    Tecnifibre multi-feel for a good economical string
    Forten Sweet, very economical and to really soften up the string bed.

    I'm a natty gut mains fan, so I always hybrid with multi mains, when I use a multi.

    Poly fans will prefer the multi in the crosses for less soft feeL and better control.

    My favorite multi hybrids are:

    ALL TIME FAVORITE - but can't buy this multi anymore :(
    A1: Laserfibre Supernatural Gut Prostock 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses.

    So my favorites among those I can buy:

    1. X-One 18 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
    2. X-One 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
    3. Xcel Power 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
    4. Xcel Power 16 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
    5. X-One 16 mains - LuxAluPower crosses
    6. NRG2 17 mains - LuxAluPower crosses

    Some people put poly in the crosses. Federer does it. Offers the soft feel / power of the gut while maintaining the control of poly. Biggest downside is that it breaks almost as fast as a full bed of multi or gut. That is why its pretty uncommon for those who use poly.

    NXT doesn't get much love here on the boards...guess its a bit more expensive, but definitely feels crisper, better control and feel
