    I usually play with Luxilon Timo:
    mains 51
    crosses 49

    If i want to hybrid this with natural gut what tension should i use?

    Gut mains at 55 lbs.
    Timo crosses at 53 lbs.

    I'd put (have put) TIMO in the mains and gut in the crosses. I installed them at the same tension with good results. A two pound difference on the crosses should work fine as well.

    Gut is a lot more elastic than the Lux. So, like Rabbit commented, stringing them at the same tension should work fine.

    To the persons that answered my question: Tnx.

    To all the other persons:

    I'm from Holland. I hate Roger Federer. Just look at the Davis Cup Draws.
