    Has anyone here used RPM Blast as a cross? I was thinking that with the slick coating on its surface it would be a good cross to increase spin. Does it help in any other areas? What did you think about it? Thanks in advance.

    Have tried as cross with VS gut. Works very well. Only downside is that it gets REALLY stiff/hard as it dies. Nearly the same as PHT. Wish that it came in hybrid pack as VS16 and RPM 16.

    What about Hurrican Feel 16 as a cross, I read somewhere that this is an ideal cross, has anyone tried it as such?

    I've tried that one too and it works great as well. More power than RPM, so depends on frame. Might be too much for some frames.

    Would rpm and Xcel be a good combo also? For spin and power?

    I've been using Hurricane Feel as a cross with gut for some time now. It retains its tension better than anything else I've tried. It is slightly less "spiny" than some of the other poly crosses I've tried, but I like it better for volleys and serves.
