    I'm looking for suggestions for a Wilson PS 85 set up. I currently use Technifibre NRG 18g @ 50 lbs. I'm getting too much vibration from this string. I have elbow issues, and I want to stay away from any Poly- how about 16g or something else? Thinking about going full gut but dont want to pay the price! Any thoughts?:)

    Gut mains and synthetic gut or soft poly crosses

    Is this an old PS85 or the TW re-issue? My old version has a multi (Xcel) in it and I get no vibration at all.

    Never tried this since my PS85 finally died after hitting with it for 26 years, but I think a gut main and poly cross would be a great setup for the racket (works well in my Prestige Pro, but I think it would be even better in a smaller head size.

    thanks everyone- i decided on a multi main (X 1 BiPhase 18g) and a poly cross (Luxilon ALU)... we'll see how it goes... all strung at 45 lbs.
