    Im currently using all Lux ALU Rough. I used to use ALU Rough mains and a multi in the cross (X-cell, Premier softlex to name a couple) but that broke after about 5 weeks.

    I was wondering if using a synthetic gut cross would still be pretty durable. I was thinking of using Prince Top spin w/duraflex 15g.

    Would this be very durable and make the stringbed feel softer than using an all polyester job?

    Feel free to recommend other cross strings.

    Thanks.

    it would definitely make it feel softer than an all poly job. but j/w, why do you want to use topspin? it's a textured string, but crosses don't do much for spin...

    I chose that becasue it was a 15g string. Ive been looking at other threads about using a synthetic gut cross and the string I saw mentiond the most was prince synthetic gut w/duraflex.

    Thanks

    Has anyone ever tried using a synthetic gut in the main and a poly cross?

    i have...it's a lot stiffer than a poly/syn gut setup and has absolutely no power.
