    Due to various reasons, I can only buy string from these brands:
    Technifibre
    Lux
    Kirsh
    Mantis
    Babolat
    wilson
    unique
    goosen
    gamma


    Can you guys recommend either a full poly or hybrid setup for my YT prestige pro using only these brands? Price wont be a factor and ill be able to restring pretty frequently.

    Thanks TT!

    It depends. What's your playing style like? What's your current setup and are you looking for something similar or better? That is a huge list of brands, and very good ones at that, so there's quite a few different ways to go here :)

    Since you can buy from Wilson, I have been playing with their Red Alert. It's more durable than most of the other synthetics out there, so if you want to hybrid something with a synthetic gut, I'd recommend it for the crosses. It will last longer than most others when used with a poly.

    Im a 5.0 all court player, but I will be needing a string setup with some touch because i'll be playing a lot of doubles in the near future. I have played with a variety of polys including black magic and tornado which i like the most. Unfortunately im stuck with only the brands above and have been stringing up full beds of PHT (yuck!....especially in the cold!)

    That sounds interesting, but I think it would be a little to powerful for me.
