    Im thinking about doing a poly(mains) syn gut (cross) and wonder if the cross strings will be breaking first or the mains. Also what is a durable good syn gut to hybrid with luxilon alu power rough.

    It all depends. I have BA 16 in the mains with Gamma SG 16 in the crosses. The BA snaps after about 10 matches. When I used PSGD in the crosses, it would fray so bad that I would cut it out before the strings broke.
