    I have decided i am going to string my Dunlop Aerogel 200s with Pro Supex Blue Gear in the mains but i am not sure what to put in the crosses or should i go for a full Blue Gear ? Also i am not sure what string tension to have i usually have my rackets strung at 58 but would it be any different with the Pro Supex Strings ? (I am 15, a agressive baseliner who hits with a fair bit of power and spin, slightly small for my age)

    Thanks in Advance !
    :)

    I just tried Full Blue Gear 17g at 65 lbs. It was definitely too tight, and I could not get enough power from the set up. The spin, however, was phenomenal. I just needed more time to set up to get enough power on my 2hbh. I am going to try hybriding it. I want to keep the control and spin capabilities, and just add a little power as well.

    It depends what you are looking for... are you stringing w/ blue gear to get the maximum amount of spin possible? do you want a lot of spin with a decent amount of touch?

    and another factor for your crosses might be whether you break strings a lot or not

    In that case, go for a hybrid of BG on the mains and a softer string such as a synthetic gut on the crosses.

    This is the same setup I have on my AG200 with BG mains @ 58lbs and Spiral Flex crosses @ 60lbs to give a balance of power and control. Plus the colour combination looks awesome on the Aerogel 200!!! :)

    Full Blue Gear in an Aerogel 200 18x20 at around 60lbs is probably my favorite setup for baseline bashing.

    jono... with BG 1.23 (haven't tried it [1.23] yet ;) )... what would you cross it with (in a hybrid) and what gauge? ~ i would like some spin from the BG but not the stiffness... should i cross with a multi and keep the BG tension low?

    I would be more inclined to cross it with a solid core nylon such as a syn gut or better still, a durable syn gut such as Spiral Flex.

    Once you hybrid Blue Gear, the "stiffness" doesn't become as pronounced, so I wouldn't drop BG to a low tension. I'd string it at the normal tension you usually would. Just to give you an example, if I usually string full BG at 58, I would string a BG/Spiral Flex hybrid at 58/60lbs. The higher tension on the crosses would help maintain the stiffness of the stringbed and prevent the mains from going soft too soon.
