    My reels are depleting and I'm ordering some Pro Supex strings.
    Has anyone used these in a hybrid together or just one or the other? If so, what tension would you recommend?

    I play doubles and enjoy creating massive topspin off my APD. My current set- up is Black Code 17g 60#/Addiction 17g 57#.

    I strung up a PK 7G with Matrix at 58/60. I ended up trading the racket, but I felt like if I had kept it that I would have liked to have gone down in tension by about 2 pounds on both mains and crosses.

    i have used these strings before and it's a great hybrid, matrix hybrid...

    i would leave the tension the same as your current BC/addiciton hybrid as both strings in this hybrid are a bit similar in softness..

    hope this helps!

    I string a buddies of mine with BA/MT (57/60) in a yonex RDS002. He love the combo. I might string it at 70 next time, he kickek my butt over the weekend 6-2 :)

    I hope that you ordered the 16g. maxim touch, as the 17g. is not very durable, either by itself, or in hybrid.

    Wow 70 is pretty high :shock: One shank might snap the strings, no?

    Thanks for the input, luckily I haven't ordered Maxim Touch yet :) Other than durability, is there a big difference between the two different guages of MT?
