Hybrid suggestion? RPM blast and......
I've been playing the RPM blast for a while now and had some serious issues with breaking strings every 2 weeks(or less). I've made some changes(Deep W to a semi-W) and the strings aren't breaking as quickly, but I feel like I lose feel around the net. I still hit a pretty heavy ball(now with more power than before) and have good power on my serves.

I'm wondering if I can gain more feel at the net with more of a Hybrid instead of a full RPM string job. Am I correct in this thinking? Do you have any suggestions on a hybrid? Which would be better on the crosses vs mains?

I'm new to stringing/experimenting with new strings so I'm not sure what the answer really is here.

I would greatly appreciate any help!

Can u take a pic of you instinct? :) and put a multifilament or synthetic, i would go with babolat thermo gut but too. Expensive

I tried several Babolot hybrid combinations and found that they had great feel and play-ability - for a short period of time... then things would go south in a hurry.

That - along with their high cost - made it easy for me to switch. You can do a lot better for less money.

There are tons of threads out here on every hybrid combination you can think of. If you are stringing yourself - I highly recommend you have 2 rackets - find one setup you prefer - and change our your 2nd on a regular basis. Once you find a better setup - go with that and try testing a few more.

I've just gone through several poly/sgut setups - and had a standard setup of MSV Co-Focus/OGSM that I really thought I'd stay with...
... then I came across Smasher08's thread on PacGut/MSV Co-Focus hybrid... and I tried it... wow - no going back now. I'm just playing with tensions now - but that will be my standard setup unless I find the durability makes the higher cost of this setup too expensive. So far though - durability looks GREAT - and this will be no more expensive than having to cut out strings after 10 hours or so because it goes dead or loses tension.

Good luck... the forums are great - but careful - it is addictive
