    I heard good things about this string.
    Is it better to use this string as a hybrid or a just a full bed of it?

    I've used this string and had good experiences with it. It has excellent feel, comfort, and power. Pretty good tension maintenance and spin for a multi. It is very lively though, so for some people they will not be able to swing out and keep the ball in. If you are holding back that will also decrease your spin. Try it in the upper tension range for your racket. It's a very good multi.

    Just try it in a full bed at hight tension to reduce power.
    Expensive multi in cross for hybrid is just wasting of money.

    Absolutely love it as a full bed, but after a few years i've decided to try it in a hybrid with ALU Power Rough crosses. Ill report back after this weekend. Pretty much my favorite string.
