Question about Hybrids
 
Was demo'ing a few sticks from TW and the Donnay XDual Gold was strung as a hybrid. It had Prince EXP in the mains, and Prince LT in the crosses. It felt ok. I've read a little about using Hybrids for durability and such. I've always used multis in all of my racquets. I might wind up getting the Donnay. What other benefits does that setup provide? Also, the Kirschbaum Pro Line II seems to get a lot of positive reviews. I don't have a tennis elbow per se, but every now and them my arm feels fatigued after playing with new or demo racquets. So I don't want to stray to far from what I'm used to. But if I can get more spin or control I'd hate to not even try it. It's a fine line I guess.

Most times when a string breaks it is one of the main strings. This is due to the higher load the main strings are under during play. Hybrids help solve this problem by using a more durable string for them mains such as Kevlar or polyester, and then using a softer string for the crosses. This setup allows for a durable string set without sacrificing feel and touch. A durability string used all the way around in a racquet will likely feel stiff and unresponsive, but used as a hybrid it will like play much better.

Reverse Hybrid uses softer string in the mains and harder string in the crosses to get more spin than regular hybrid. Reverse Hybrid has low durability. (Roger Federer setup)

From Ace String Service..

so if money is no object use a reverse hybrid.
