    Normally I just use a Synthetic gut strung at 59 lbs. in my Head Flexpoint OS. I have now decided to try a hybrid combination. I plan on using Luxilon ALU Power Rough 16L in the "mains" and Prince Synthetic Gut 16 in the "crosses". What should I set my stringer on lb. wise if I string the Luxilon (instructions say 10% lower) and then what lbs. for the Prince Syntheric Gut in crosses.

    string it as if it was any other string. i do mine that way and i love it. i notice a change in performance after a couple hours but only for the better. i guess i like the way it doesnt hold tension. if u dont like it go for less tension..
