    i once used Wilson's champion's choice hybrid which is lux ALU rough and wilson natural gut. i put the lux alu rough in the mains and gut in the crosses. still gave me elbow pain. lux always seems to bother my elbow. therefore, i will be staying away from it.

    I tried the wilson ultimate duo which is Luxilon big banger and NXT. It sucked. Most horrid combo I tried. The NXT broke within 1 day. I guess the BB just sawed into the string.

    u cant use a hybrid with poly on mains and multis on crosses the multi will break within a few days. Synthetic gut or natural gut with poly mains is the only way to go

    if you say that luxilon hurts your elbow, why are you re-stringing it with luxilon again? Also, as stated above, the poly might saw through the crosses, so I suggest using some string savers.

    my review on nxt... i found alot of spin like alot decent power and very good for volleys.i found it prety good soft not durable at all though i would so mix this with poly.

    i use NXT with Enduro Pro in the mains. its softer than luxilon so it doesn't shred the strings too much while still providing a good hybrid
