    HI
    Hey tennis ppl,
    I've been messing around with a buncha hybrids lately, and think it's about time I've settled down :???:. I plan to make an order w/ TW by this weekend and would appreciate any feedback.

    I really liked the softer polys like SPPP 17 and Cyber Power 17. Soo Im pretty sure it's gonna be one of those...probly the SPPP cause it feels a better then the CP, although i'll miss the bit of extra pop it gave me.


    Wat i really want to know is if I should get the 17 or 18 guage. I realize that I really should try them both, but am interested in the experiences of those who have tried both. Im not much of a string breaker, break about once every 1.5 months. do u think I should go w/ the 18 or stick w/ the 17. I really like the 17, but am wondering if there is somthin better.


    Ohh yea, Imm also goin hybrid it w/ some Gosen OG Micro.
    Currently playing w/ stick A: CP @ 56 X OG Micro @56 and stick B: SPPP @ 57 X OG Micro @ 57. Yea i jus felt like doin 57 that day :oops:. thanks in advance.

    Edit: Opps i meant that i wanna buy one reel. anyone kno how to change thread title?

    Go with Pro Supex Big Ace or Topspin CyberPower. Then get yourself a reel of Gosen OG Micro to hybrid. All 3 strings are solid performers.

    I have a heavy topspin game and all 3 strings performed well.

    The 17L seems to pop fairly quickly with me in a full bed. I'd go with the 17, it may save a bit. I have about one set left from my reel and am about to order it in 17 this time. I have a few people that use it also.

    I prefer the Big ace, slightly less power.

    But do they have the same playabilities apart from power or is one stiffer than the other etc?

    For me it breaks in about 4-5 hours, just too quick. I was using the speedport tour, but now moved to the new 03 pro tour. haven't dropped any in it yet, but will be putting the 17 in it. I have noticed getting more life with a different cross like x1 biphase.

    they might be for sale.

    not sure what you meant by PSGD? but yeah it would be a nice cross to mix with SPPP mains.
