    Usually I string with Signum Pro Poly Plasma at 60lbs but last time I was at the stringers, they were out and they suggested Luxilon Alu Power Spin, again at 60lbs. While I am enjoying the results of this string on my play - I am able to swing hard a lot more confidently than before - the results for my shoulder are not so good. What are my options here, would stringing with a multi/ luxilon hybrid solve this problem or are there less abrasive strings that still allow for this degree of control?

    Yes, hybriding the luxilon with a syngut or multi will soften up the string bed and might get rid of your arm pain
    you could possibly try a better dampener first

    It is always a compromise.

    You can try a hybrid with a softer string, but it will lower the control.

    Ultimately you want to settle for a setup with the best control that your arm can handle.

    Vs / pro hurricane hybrid is nice, it worked wonders on my racket, completely different feeling than kgut or livewire pro.
    I am sure you can find something cheaper and better than that hybrid but its really good for me! I am anxious to try other hybrids with some form of gut. Love the pocketing and feel and spin.
