    Hi, i am intending to string my k blade tour with luxilon bb alu power spin in the mains. What durable "soft" string would you recommend in the crosses, is gamma live wire 16 a good choice? Thanks:)

    It's soft, but not durable. Instead of using a multi, use a regular synthetic and string it a couple of pounds lower. A 2nd suggestion would be not to use the ALU Spin. If you want a spin string, most of those who I've strung Lux for like the ALU Power Rough better than the Spin. They say it lasts longer too.

    I use Alu in my mains and have tried many different cross strings, the softest
    most durable cross I have played is Babolat N vy, it has hard silica beads impregnated onto the outer surface, it does not notch. It makes a great hybrid paired with Alu.
