    looking for an inexpensive poly to use in a hybrid.

    i did a search with "string finder" on TW and only a few came up for under $5.

    any recommendations in this price range?

    thanks

    Tourna and Topspin come to mind for decent quality. Volkl V-Torque is pretty cheap right now at TW if you buy it in a clear package.

    Should have mentioned, You will need to look at a reel in the Tourna and Topspin to hit your dollar limit per set.

    ^^^Exactly. You will have to buy them from the US retailer or from the UK retailer and pay the shipping costs. You'll still be way below the costs of most other strings.

    Recent find, Pro's Pro Concept behaves similarly as MSV CoFocus in cross.

    Gamma poly-z is a very smooth polyester string for 4 bucks.

    Yeah, if you're using it for a cross, poly-z is the stiffest string I've used ever

    I would say it loses tension about the same as many other polys.

    Also try Mamba Tennis Strings (google them). They offer free shipping on all orders, even just single sets. Inexpensive and quality strings.

    It's cheap I'll give you that, but I bought a reel of polylon and after about 2 stringjobs gave it away.
