    I like Cyber Flash 1.25 (47 dw)/Hexy Fiber 1.32 (52 dw) in 95" racquets, but that didn't stop me from ordering a set of Red Code 1.20 and Outlast 1.20 to try full bed. I had been wondering about these two strings when I found my current hybrid, and I'm having trouble settling down.

    I have only hit with 1 hybrid in the last 2 years. Almost always full poly.

    I really like full bed. Have yet to really like full bed poly but I'm trying out some softer ones soon. I play with full syn gut right now. Full multi is too powerful in my opinion. The only exception is PPA

    Hybrid. At least the stringbed keeps some playability that way. With full poly you are bound too restring often as a result of the tension loss.

    I played with a hybrid when just starting to get into poly (poly mains wilson hollowcore crosses) But now ive been exclusively doing full poly jobs. I like the feel especially if its a soft co-poly. Tried a full bead of vs and liked it recently. Sooo Im gonna try gut/yonex spin hybrid and depending on how that goes I could be running dunlop ice full beds.

    Recently tried full gut again due to some special circumstances. Great control and comfort as always. Just not enough easy access to spin.

    hybrid: use to use poly/synthetic and migrated over to gut/poly. Never really liked the feel of full poly. Currently debating whether to go full poly on my new exo3 tour 100 since its such a flexy racket.
