6.1 95 string advice?
 
I moved to these frames a few months ago and love them. I am struggling to find the right string combo for spin and power? So thinking of maybe a hybrid of red code and next tour, what wy round would you ha be it or what other strings would you recommend. Cheers guts

I use the 6.1 95 308g, and my stringer gave me luxilon alu rough 1.3 crosses/VS mains. It's a v. comfortable combination, and quite resistant too, especially with the tiny plastic pads to put between the strings when they start fraying.

I believe they're tensioned at 26/25 kg.

I use MSV Focus Hex (17) in the mains and Goosen Sheep micro in the crosses (17). It's soft, very spin friendly, and holds tension well. Good luck.

If you have the 6.1 95 16x18, I would try poly mains in 50-52 range with a multi or syn gut cross +4 lbs. If the 18x20, you could go multi or syn gut mains in the 54-56 range and the poly cross -4 lbs.

If you are talking about the prostaff 6.1 95, I would go gut or multi mains with poly cross 54/50 or lower.

this also depend on your style of play too - could alter the suggestions.

alu, alu rough, or 4g in the crosses and vs tonic in the mains. It is a great combo.

I found that I like Tour Bite / N.vy in the 16x18 but didn't like it in the 18x20.

Thanks for the replys guys, appears most are saying a hybrid. I like hybrids, but the tension has to be right. I've had them before and you can get a weird ping feel like there uneven if that makes any sense. I've allways strung the crosses slightly looser as they cover less distance?

When I was playing the BLX 6.1 95 18x20, my favorite was a full bed of Tecnifibre Black Code 16.
