    I'm looking to get a little more power out of my strings while keeping at my current tension about the same. I was thinking about hybriding Gosen Micro OG 17(currently used in full bed) with Maybe Dunlop DNA or Silk.
    Does anyone have any experience or advice with hybriding a syn gut, with a mulit? Suggested string set ups also welcome.

    Maybe you can try ogsm 18 on main with ogsm 17 on crosses both tension at 50 lbs. This setup will give you more power and spin. I recalled that i hybrid ogsm 18 with wilson sensation and did not like it, the trampoline effect is too overwhelming. Poly and multi works better. Poly with syn is more durable and cost effective.

    Hybriding with any syn guts won't make it more powerful. Power comes from the type of string and the tension. The most powerful strings are (in order):

    1. gut
    2. multi
    3. syn gut
    4. poly

    Gosen is already pretty stiff and is generally not very powerful.

    If you want more power, stick with a full bed of a soft multi and string it lower than you are now. Try 2 lbs lower and go from there.

    I like to use OGSM as a cross string paired with a multifilament main. Full beds of multifilament tend to end up with fuzzy crosses in the sweet spot after a while, and using a synthetic gut avoids that.

    What strings have you used in the past? I've used full bed multis, and gut before.

    I've used a number of multis, but I like Prince Premier Attack best.

    This thread is a good reference for different multis. For the strings I've hit with, I agree with Mikeler's reviews.

    I've also used synthetic gut as a cross for natural gut. It provides nearly all the feel of a full natural gut at a much lower cost and (usually) with better durability.
