    I really like the crisp and pop from my setup of Klip legend gut 18ga mains and Isospeed 17ga professional crosses. 55/58.

    Which is giving me the crisp feeling? I am thinking of stringing all gut if I can have the same feeling.

    What tension given the above numbers would you use.

    If you do a search here there is some info about this combination.

    I would suggest around 57 if you want to go all gut...

    I played gut + isospeed pro hybrid for a long time.

    You might want to try the head rip control instead of isospeed. I found it even crisper.

    Great, I just happen to have a couple of sets.
    Since I am stringing two rackets I can try both. Would you string the Head Rip Control the same tension or higher?

    I tried search but maybe I am not using the correct wording.

    I had to string Isospeed Pro quite high to account for its initial tension loss, but not so much with rip control.
