    Restrung my racquet with Big ace 17 mains/babolat vs team gut 17 crosses both at 58 with great results compared to full big ace 17 at 56 pounds.

    Spin - Much better bite and spin potential with the hybrid probably due to higher tension and rough surface of gut
    power - pretty similar but a small edge to poly/gut
    control - equal
    comfort, touch - feels much better with the gut crosses, much more comfortable with better pocketing
    tension maintenance - Haven't played with it for long but I assume gut with hold tension much better than big ace.

    I have Legend mains/Big Ace 17 crosses in one of my MG Prestige mids -- you should give the gut mains a shot, they feel great!
