    In a hybrid, what 2 types of string give the best combination? is it synthetic + poly, multi/gut, or gut/ poly??
    Also, what goes in the mains, and what goes in the crosses, and which should have more /less tension.
    thanks for clearing this up for me.:)

    Most of us use Poly in the mains and synth gut or crosses. Of course not everyone is the same and not all have money to burn

    I think its a feel issue. You'll have to see for yourself. You may not even like a hybrid and find a full string job gives you more feel.
