    I have just recieved a set of these strings, and I am looking to hybrid in my prestige MP. From past experience, the Big ace is a soft poly that I will string at about 54 lbs. The Isospeed I have never used before, but it's meant to be a popular multifilament. What tension do you guys recommend in a dense string pattern??..I am thinking about 57 lbs, and ideally dont want the string to be moving around after a couple of hours.


    I usually play poly full setup, and recently tried Poly main (pro hurricane) and Gosen Hy-sheep (Cross)....This setup felt very muted compared to Big Ace full setup.

    Isospeed is not that durable for heavy topspinners but what multi really is...I hit relatively flat so the durability is decent for me. I'm willing to give some of that up for the comfort.

    Just had this hybrid setup for a few days, and the isospeed is fraying considerably. As dabuda mentioned, it doesn't seem a durable string for heavy topspinners. It does play nice and soft and I am still generating good spin on my forehand. With the FXPP MP being a control orientated racquet, I would prefer a setup with abit more pop. Overall though, a decent setup.
