    Hello, had an extra pack of Tour Bite in my bag and decided to try a hybrid with them! I'm gonna try it with Prince Synthetic Gut Duraflex and I don't know which string to put on the mains or crosses. Help please?

    If you put them in the crosses with PSGD mains you'll get a string job that'll last you under 2 hours.

    Tour Bite in the mains....Since Tour Bite is a shaped string designed to add spin it needs to be in the mains... shaped strings dont add much if any spin when they are used in the crosses.

    Is there another string that's budget friendly for the crosses then? I was worried about the shape of Tour Bite sawing through crosses..haha..

    The Prince Syn gut with Duraflex is actually a pretty durable synthetic. You should get a good amount of play with those before they break.

    What shape?

    Tour Bite looks to me like a smooth, round string. If it is shaped (maybe it is), then you'll need a microscope to see it.

    You're completely wrong. It's shaped. You can feel the sharp edges of the string.

    You would be fine in a hybrid. PSGD has decent durability for a cross.
