    Hi, i'm using KBlade 98 (string pattern: 18x20) & stringing with WeissCannon Silverstring(1.20mm) @23.5kg(52lbs)
    I want to try hybrid WeissCannon TurboTwist(main) & Explosiv!(cross)
    Can you suggest me about tension for main/cross?
    Thanks you!

    some string the crosses 2-3lbs tighter to help the mains retain tension longer. some string crosses 2-3lbs lower to soften the stringbed and promote less friction hence more spin.

    I use a lot of Turbotwist in a full bed, and I found it is a little more lively than Silversting. I would suggest you think about bumping the tension up a few pounds on the Turbotwist to the mid-50s to maintain then same level of control you have with Silverstring. Turbotwist is fairly comfortable for a poly, so I haven't had any problems stinging it in the mid-50s. I typically string other polys like silversting around 50-52lbs, so I think it is a good place for you to start.

    Also, if you don't like the Turbotwist hybrid, you should give it a shot in a full bed. I haven't found another poly that I like better with that setup.
