    I'm currently using Pacific Champ One and Pacific Tough Gut (natural) at 53lbs works very nice! Great combo!

    Also got one strung with ALU Power Rough and Babolat VS Touch 51.

    Great combo also

    I've gone with a thin gauge poly at low tensions and i'm loving it. I'm currently using msv hex 18l (1.10mm) and it feels amazing. I have to restring every 12-15 hours but i've never played better.

    I know some others have similar string set ups with low tension polys in the 18x20.

    thanks. i will be trying klip gut uncoated and alu power hybrid. for my first option. tried a gut/poly combo set-up before with 18x19 pattern & it gives me inconsistency. hope the tight string pattern and low power type of racquet would me what i want. and intellitour hybrid 16 will be my second option in the future...

    i've been trying the ELT in the low 30s and am liking it (as well as my elbow). for one set up, i went back to low 50's for syn and high 40's poly, and my TE would flare up! keeped me up at night in pain. i cut it after 3x playing.
    now i'm back to syn mains@42, poly cross@35. it feels very good compared. my next set up might be poly@33/syn@38.
    Lovin' my PrestigeMP :)

    Wouldn't warp the racquet? 10lbs difference from main to crosses...
    BTW thanks!

    I've been trying 10lbs difference this summer and it's been good! Also have it on my Yonex 001 90[54/44], BLX90[47/37] and on my X10 Midsize, it's actually a 12lb difference[50/38].
    I think it's safe to do because there are more crosses than mains and they are shorter too.

    I have an IG Prestige Pro with Solinco Outlast 16 @ 52 lbs mains, and Technifibre Multifeel 16 @ 56 lbs in crosses. Absolutely gobs of spin.

    It does for me, a tad. Last time I experimented with natural gut in mains with poly crosses, I did 60/52. My racquet was more circular and less egg-shaped, compared to doing a full bed of any other string @ the same tension.
