    What's percentage of people going hybrid now? Is it specifcally to have them last longer? or is there more performance.. feel.. Also is mostly poly/synthetic poly / gut hybrids or numerous combinations..

    Poly/Multi.

    Comfort without losing much control. I was a full poly user then TE came back after 6 months. I tried full Synthetic, no control or feel. I tried full multi, too much power. I tried Poly/Syn Gut, no durability or feel. I stuck with poly/multi for the feel and control.

    poly/gut or copoly/gut

    I think most pros that hybrid will blend with natural gut for the best performance and feel. Its more expensive and will not last as long since those strings will usually break the gut first. I think most amateurs cant afford to pay that gut hybrid price and restring so often so will hybrid with a syn. Another reason is to mix guages to maximize spin potential.
