    I have a lot more of Touch Turbo 1.25 (17gauge). I'm considering the Gosen OG-Sheep Micro Super JC 16. Is this okay? What string would do better in mains, which in crosses? Thanks. It's for a Diablo MP.

    17 gauge poly in the mains and 16 gauge syngut in the crosses will give you a durable combination that will be fairly soft relative to a full poly job.

    It looks like a good combination as listed above.

    If you reverse it, you'll have a less durable combination but it will be a bit softer.

    Thank you so much David!! What playability advantage will this hybrid give as opposed to just playing totally with Touch Turbo 1.25.? Thanks.
