    i recently went to a tennis center and i bought some Head strings for $5. it is a hybrid with RIP Protect mains and RIP Comfort crosses. the package said i should string both at the same tension. but what kind of the strings are these? i dont' know if they are poly or synthetic or what?

    and i can't seem to find these two strings on TW either

    if it is a hybrid, the only hybrids being made nowadays are poly mains and syn crosses or gut/poly etc... my guess is poly m and syn crosses...

    i don't think so because the string for the mains is not as stiff as the string for the crosses. i guess ill string up there at 62 for boths strings and give it a try

    Both are soft multis, so same tension, slightly tighter maybe.

    well i don't know if i should go tighter. the recommended for my lm radical is 52-62. but im pretty sure the warranty has already been voided somehow. the guy i will give to string it will only cost me $5 and i know there isn't a "warranty" thing where if my racquet breaks, etc.
