    I enjoy hybrid stringing, to be cost effective i am looking into buying reels of strings, but want to make sure i am making a wise decision.

    Mains (polys): I am in a toss-up between Isospeed Speed (black looks cool) and Cyberflash 17 (used and like it). Noticed the isospeed is way cheaper and the feedback seems positive.

    Crosses (syn. gut): just looking into simple white Gamma or Babolat.

    Throwing it out there to hear about the experience/reccomendations from the TT community.

    Thanks

    Reel of Cyberflash + a reel of Gosen OG Micro is a value that's hard to beat

    I like both Gosen OS Sheep and Forten sweets for crosses.
    Gosen's are a bit crisper's where as the Forten's are nice and soft and comfortable.

    A reel of Gosen is cheaper by 20 bucks.... just throwin that out there. I personally prefer Forten sweet, but I would only buy in sets.
