    Thinking of doing a hybrid of luxilon big banger and gamma syn gut to prolong the life of my reel.

    What would u recommend for the mains, does it actually make a difference?

    Thanks

    Lux in the mains, syngut in the crosses. If you do the other way the Lux in the crosses will saw through the syngut mains and snap them pretty quick.

    Put the one in the mains that you want to feel the most. I'm thinking you'll want to use the Luxilon in the mains. It will also be much more durable this way.

    I've tried Lux Fluro in your hybrid (gut in crosses) and while it was ok, I went back to gut all around.

    Looking forward to try Serena's new Lux, 4G or - presumably it maintains tension better

    Yes, I tried this. While it plays great, it doesn't last long...
