    CROSS: Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power 16L (53lbs)

    MAIN: Tecnifibre X-One Biphase 16G (58lbs)

    RACKET: Babolat Pure Drive Standard Cortex

    Do you think this is a good combo, any other combos you think will be just as good or even better?

    I like it because i serve and volley and its helps with the feel. its also good at the baseline because i get benefits from both strings

    Flip it around and it will be great.

    For one, it will be easier to string, and two, it will have much, much better spin.

    I think it would be cheaper, actually. The "Tecnifibre X-One Biphase 16G" with "Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power 16L" would cost about $15.38 and something similar to that like the "Wilson Champion's Choice Hybrid 16" would cost about $29.

    Used the same setup in a different frame at 64 pounds throughout. Felt pretty nice.

    Champion's Choice has natural gut in it.

    Also, don't buy Wilson hybrids. They're all cheaper to buy two sets of each string separately and have enough for two jobs.

    Yeah, that's right. I meant to say that Tecnifibre X-One Biphase 16G is the closest thing to natural gut, as they say.

    Less power, more spin and control. Poly in the mains is the only way to do it, IMO (unless you're using natural gut in the mains).

    So, to get more power...it`s better poly in crosses??:confused:

    As my raquet has control I need power, then you advice me to put poly in crosses and XOne biphase in mains??

    Thanks

    Yes -- more power with X-1 Biphase in mains. For even more power, use a bit lower tension.

    X-1 in the mains may give you more power but they won't last at all. Multis were never known to last very long and having them in the mains (which usually snap first) will mean that you will be going through alot of strings in a short period of time. Polys on the other hand don't break at all compared to the multis, so they should be in the mains, unless your someone like Roger Federer...

    +1 with another point of view... If you are stringing a hybrid, multi/SG/NG in the mains is pointless IMO. Durability aside, a prime benefit of poly is the spin potential, and that is going to manifest itself in the mains.
