    4. Babolat RPM Blast/Babolat S Gut 51/55
    5. Wilson Champion's Choice
    6. Wilson Pro Duo (Lux BB Timo/Hollow Core Pro)
    Which of these combination will last long and has good spin potential because I wanna get rid of full bed poly which i have to change after three hitting sessions or so.

    Hybrid

    I have used Champions Choice with the gut in the mains at 50 and the Lux ALU rough in the crosses at 48.

    It seems this is the only hybrid you mention that uses gut.

    This has been reported as the setup that Federer uses or did use. He may have moved on to something else.

    I liked it a lot, but like Lux 4G in the crosses better. You still have the problem of the poly needing replacement a lot sooner than the gut.

    It's not in your list, but Dual Reality Hybrid by Weiss Canon could be added to your list. In general, Weiss Canon makes good strings. I'll give it a shot soon.

    I liked Black Code with Xcel.(3), haven't used Pro Hurricane on it though.
