    How did it work for you?

    What gauges and tensions did you use? In which racquet?

    Thanks.

    Thanks, scotus. As a reference point, would you normally string full VS Team at 61 lbs. in the 7G?

    I tried this set up with BA 17 mains at 60 and Klip Legend Nat. gut 16 at 63 and it was an absolute rocket launcher. There was almost no spin and I couldn't keep anything on the court. I cut it out after hitting with it for about 30min. on court (I switched to another frame with my normal setup). THis was far more powerful than anything I have ever tried.

    What racquet were you using and what string/tension is your normal setup?

    Thanks.

    I have never used full VS Team. Always in a hybrid.

    Big Ace by itself is already soft and powerful. I don't think it's neccessary to hybrid it with gut.

    I play a MGPP and the BA was strung at 60 with the gut at 63.
    My normal set up is red code 17g at 59 or 60 with spiral flex 16g crosses at 62 or 63. I have tried BA with spiral flex crosses as well as nat. gut crosses and also a full set of BA and found it to not be good for my game at all in any setup.
