    Im using the blx pro open, currently strung with full PHT, 16g, and 56 lbs. I just bought a new stringer and its arriving in a week and i was wondering whats a good hybrid thats cheap and plays well. I made a list of some strings i might want, you guys should give me a small review on the strings and whats a good hybrid for them.

    Topspin cyber flash reel $74
    Golden set snake bit reel $77
    Golden set poly reel $50
    Golden set classic reel $25
    Topspin polytech reel $29.99
    Gosen Og sheep micro reel $35.95
    Gamma monoblast yellow reel $35.95
    Polyfibre poly hightec reel $89.90
    Wilson enduro (I forgot the price lol)
    Forent nylon ( I forgot the price of this to but i just remember it being around $17 =P)

    I was thinking of maybe using these strings with a hybrid of PHT or with some Luxi or some random poly. If you guys could find something cheaper that would be nice too lol. Anyone have any suggestions? THANKS IN ADVANCE!! :)

    Cyberflash and Gosen Sheep has quite the synergy... the Gosen will help with the tension maintenance of the Cyberflash. It's probably the most popular cheap hybrid on this forum.

    My new cheap favorite is TF Poly Spin + Wilson Syn Gut...however, I don't think the TF Poly Spin comes in reels...

    I had both main & cross at full max recommended tension (EXO3 Black), it played great! It certainly was pretty stiff, the mains doesn't move a lot, decent direction on ground strokes, good pop on serves.
