    I need to pick a poly cross string to go with Pacific Tough Gut 17 mains on a Dunlop Biomimetic 100. The choices are: Pacific Poly Force 17ga, Isospeed Black Fire 17ga, or Babolat Revenge 16ga. What would you pick and why? The Bio 100's are leaded up and leather grip. I play a big serve and attack game with western fh grip and western backhand grip. Hopefully that helps. Thank you TT'ers!!

    I am using Isospeed Black Fire crosses with Tonic gut mains and it's awesome. The black fire is super slick to allow the gut to slide and is low powered to tame the power of the gut.

    I prefer thicker guage poly strings for crosses. Go with 16g, it will last longer and won't notch the gut as much.
