    I want to try new hybrid since i use Black Code 17g / Multifeel 17g and now i think to string with Lux ALU Rough / Xcel Power 16g ( or maybe 17g ). Will it be the same as BC / Multifeel or will be better ? I can try also with other poly but the multi will be Xcel Power or X-One BP. I was tryed Multi / Poly hybrid but it breaks in the second set and the poly / multi hybrid have been last long for 2 weeks ( it's pritty dead but not broken ).

    never really liked black code in a hybrid

    anyway alu rough xcel is a top notch combo i think it would be better

    Lux alu power rough/Gamma tnt2 is nice
    Gamma Zo verve 17/wilson stamina is great as well
    Also a fan of Gamma Zo Tour Rough/Wilson Sensation

    All around 58/56 or 61/58 tensions.

    The M2 Pro is a blast, but it loses tension pretty quickly. I used a full bed of it.

    It's not stiff right ? I don't have problem with stiff strings but just don't like them ( that's i use hybrid with multi and also for the power and feel ).

    It's still pretty stiff. Haven't played with the latest round of luxes yet... but to my knowledge, lux doesn't make anything but stiff polys. Stiff polys that play incredibly well... but stiff polys nevertheless.

    I played M2 Pro at 52 lb. It felt very comfortable to me. There was no break-in period. But I recomend you string it at least 3 lb. higher, due to the quick tension loss. If I tried it again, I would string it at 55 lb. This is on a Dunlop Aerogel 200.

    String M2 Pro at 55 lb. on BLX 6.1 Tour and it felt great. I found it very powerful and with good comfort and control. Great string.

    I'm glad you like it. Please let us know how much play time you get before it loses tension, assuming you don't break it first.
