    Interesting!

    Not sure how completely accurate this list is because we all know Nadal doesn't use Hurrican tour but what struck me was the tensions. I have been torn for a while about the tension difference in hybrids. Rule of thumb says to string a syn gut , multi, natural in the crosses higher becasue it is not as stif as the poly but if you look even the pros with a non-poly in the crosses are stringing it either the same or at a lower tension. I started stringing my crosses in full jobs (no matter what string type) and the feeling is much better than at all one tension. Sweet spot seems to be a little bigger and ball pocketing is more noticeable while not having a trampoline effect. Just food for thought.
