    Never mixed brands of mains and crosses. Would appreciate any input. I'm a 3.5, hard hitter if that matters. Thanks!

    You want a hybrid or full bed? Stiff or soft feeling? Spin or no spin?

    Looking for more spin. What do you mean by your other questions?

    Volkl Cyclone provided an incredible amount of spin to go with the power of this racket. Might be worth a try, but don't string it past mid 50 or the stiffness might kill your arm.

    I'm jumping in this thread because I have the same question. I've been playing with a Prince Hybrid Hornet and using BiPhase 17 strings at max tension.

    I liked the Juice 100 when I demoed it, but I'm not so sure now that I have it strung with BiPhase 17 at 60 lbs. It feels stiff and I'm having a hard time controlling my forehand.

    Should I try a lower string tension with the multi - or is a poly more appropriate for this racket?

    Spin Cycle is magic in the Juices.

    What tension do you recommend? I think Wilson recommends 58.

    FWIW, I played with the racket yesterday and realized that the sweet spot is much closer to the throat of the racket than my Prince racket. Once I adjusted, the racket (and strings) were feeling much better. I'm thinking this might be because the racket is quite head light.

    Try babolat vs touch at 48 and then luxilon timo 17 at 51! This string set up is the best for the juice 100 i think!

    Anyone else have any recommendations? I have only tried signum Pro Evolution with Nvy crosses and its not bad. You really need a spin friendly setup to control the power of this racquet.

    Try a few different polys ranging in stiffness and see what you like best. Any decent synthetic gut should work well in the crosses. The mains are going to dictate how the stick feels and plays for the most part.

    My favorite setup is either VS/Prince/Wilson natural gut mains and ProLine Evolution or Ltec 4S works well.
