    I recently bought the new Babolat PD. Im looking to hybrid string it with a combo that will give me more power but also some durability. Im looking to find a cheap hybrid combo, and I already have a reel of WIlson sensation . Please let me know a cheap combo that will give me those factors or even a combo that I can use with my wilson sensation. Thanks.

    I would reccomend either using ProHurrican/Gamma Gut 2, or Big Banger ALU Power Rough/Gamma Gut 2. Or you can just throw the sensation in with either the ProHurricane or ALU Power

    Would the sensation last me longer than the pro hurricane or alu power...if so should i string that on the mains since that is what i usually break and string the crosses with hurricane or alu power

    What would you think about Pro Hurricane as the mains and Babolat Conquest +16 for the crosses?

    i dont know. cant decide if it would work. might have a strange feel to it, might not. dont really know. cause if i remember right conquest is more of a druable string right

    Signum Pro Poly Plasma mains
    Forten Sweet Synthetic Gut crosses

    Go for it!!

    Pro Hurricane sucks and Conquest isn't as good as Forten Sweet. ALU Power is overpriced and Sensation will snap easily.

    I have been wanting to try PPP, I bought a couple of sets a couple of months ago...I also can't stand Sensation, don't know why people like it...

    Sensation, I dislike but NXT is nice for the first few hours of hitting (I'd say about 10 hours) but then it gets SUPER MUSHY and you lose control of your shots, most noticable on serve.
