    This weekend I had a chance to try it.
    Actually three different set ups:
    MP with Babolat Tonic 53lb
    MP with Babolat Tonic/Gosen Micro hybrid 60lb
    Mid with Babolat Tonic 53lb

    I tried Mid for full 50 minutes, alternating between my own setup and FXP.
    People are complaining about the racquet being too stiff. Well, it was strung rather low, and the full gut job and I was noticing a lot of vibrations.
    I am not sure if that was because of the full gut job or the low tension.
    I noticed that my swing on the backhand side was to quick few times.
    Other than that, I did not find any difference between the LM and FXP versions.

    MP with full gut I could quite live with. Vibrations again, but other than that racquet was quite solid, very nice and stable.

    MP with the hybrid setup however, was a dream.
    Nice, buttery feel. Jsut the way I like it. Did not hit with it for too long, mainly I just wanted to compare full NG versus hybrid and to check if
    vibrations could be eliminated if strung correctly.

    I used to play with LM MP for a while.

    Now I am thinking of switching back :)

    Regards, Predrag

    I'm curious if the hybrid in the mid will eliminate those vibrations. I had the same situation with the LM mid with a full VS natural gut string gut. It felt harsher than the Tonic/Gosen hybrid (now, that was nice, I miss it already).

    Any Flexpoint Mid users out there yet? What are you stringing your mid or midpluses with?
