    i have tried out quite a few different strings in my fxp prestige, timo, alu supersense, synthetic guts etc. Does anyone have any suggestions for a really good string setup for this racquet? Should I hybrid? Any suggestions would be great.

    Generally Gosen's OG Sheep Micro Super JC will work out well in those.

    I hybrid mine, VS Touch 16g Gut mains @62 and Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17G crosses @60. Plays great.

    You can definately hybrid it. It's all a matter of personal preference. The main thing that you have to take into account is your playing style. Do you need durability, playability, spin etc. You can really go from there.

    And I didn't recommend a hybrid above, and don't now, too. When not a chronic stringbreaker, you don't want polyester, which sooner or later produces known wrist, arm and shoulder problems.

    Then at least try Prince's Lightning Power, a string that blends nylon in. Although this is still poly-based, it doesn't happen to need a boost from a synthetic cross due to its springier Powerfoil wrap. And its back and available here on TW, too.
