Best Poly or Multifilament

Discussion in 'Strings' started by themightysock, Nov 5, 2005.

  1. I'm gonna string my racket with babolat tonic 16 crosses and was wondering what string i should hybrid it with. I'd like these strings to be durable, hold tension well, and move little. Any suggestions?

    Why use gut as crosses??? The majority of your playability comes from the mains and if I were opening the coffers for gut, I would want the full benefits and at least string them in the mains. To lessen the expense you can use a synthetic gut cross, like PSGD or I have found Alpha Gut 2000 (with a pre-stretch) does a good job in hybrid with natty gut. I don't recommend a poly hybrid with gut. (Another topic for another day!) And I especially don't recommend using gut as a cross in hybrid with poly. In my opinion a total waste of money for recreational and club level players.

    Truth is I would suggest you forget the hybrid idea and go full gut. That is ultimately going to be the sweetest set-up.
