    I have been using full gut at 60 lbs. Just got some gosen micro sheep 16 to use in crosses. I am hoping it is less powerful than the gut so I can reduce tension with the hybrid. What would be a good amount. Say 58 gut mains...55 gosen crosses? Lower? I want to go as low as I can and still control the ball well....thanks

    Were it me, I'd probably opt to string a full set of Gosen until I found that new lower tension. Then, I'd try the hybrid you're talking about. The initial feel of the full Gosen should indicate to you within a couple of pounds how you should string the hybrid.

    Possibly save you a couple (or 30) dollars...

    Hope this helps.

    OK, I hear you. So put a full bed of the gosen in and then when I think that is about right, then put the gut in the mains maybe a little tighter. Makes sense.
