    Ok, so we know that Federer uses the ALU Power Rough crosses, and Vs Team Natural on the mains. But is the tension set up even throughout the head. Because I wanna set this up on a LM Prestige MP, so do I go to my stringer and give him the two hybrid sets and just give him one tension #, or can you tell him to set the crosses at a different tension than the mains. And if so, any suggestions as to what tension I should set if they both can have seperate tensions? Originally I was thinking about having a tension of 62 or higher if I didn't go with a hybrid, since I'm a hard hitter and need some more control. Thanks in advance.

    I strung ALU Power Rough (main) and Vs Team (cross) at 58lbs/62lbs on Wilson N61 16x18. On prestige you might want to lower 1 or 2 lbs.
    I also strung VS team in the main before, however it only lasts less than 2 hours.

    Shouldn't you go with more tension on the crosses? I'm curious how it felt...

    From where I'm getting it from, the combo only costs $38.25, and I've heard its pretty durable too. So, whether its worth the price is for you to decide.
