Hybrids
 
I(junior player) am currently using a APD 2013 with full bed some random synthetic gut strings and I have broken these strings once every week and a half for about a month. Next time i'm probably going to try a poly hybrid, any suggestions?

I'll open the bidding with SPPP or Outlast with 16g Syngut crosses @52/56.

Cool, i'll give it a try

I'm a junior aswell and poly hybrids are great I've tried a lot of strings my favourite so far is Pro's Pro Blackout with Pro Supex Spiral Flex at 50/55...if you cant get Blackout use Tecnifibre Blackcode instead:)

I'll see you and raise you 2 sides and a gauge.
BHB7 17/OGSM 17 :)
Of course this is for spin. My first suggestion was a bit bland considering OP is coming from 'random syngut'.

what do you string your bhbh7/ogsm at? i used this setup once a couple months ago and liked it but i think it was at 52/54? been a while since I've used it

Mikeler,

As for your Thunderblast 16 suggestion for a hybrid cross, bravo! Been doing wonders for me with MSV Hex 1.23 in the mains at 52 pounds on my X-2 machine. I bought a set of the white (natural?) Thunderblast to do a side by side. I think I remember you saying that the white version was a good bit softer and that you preferred it to the black (not only because it doesn't stain the ball) Thanks again!

Please let me know how the white compares as a cross. I've come across a half set of the black since I'll be trying poly again next month in the mains. I'll be trying Babolat Nvy and Discho Microfibre crosses too.

Had a 90 min practice and 90 min match and the white thunder blast is notably softer. A little too much extra power for my hybrid setup and I'm not willing to raise the tension in my vcore xi 100. Had 52 pounds both main and cross with focus hex 1.23 in the mains. Shots I ordinarily keep in the court were going just long enough to be frustrating.

The black version treats me well and I think that I'm going to get a reel. The black version softens the poly just the right amount for me whereas the white version is comfortable but not my favorite.

I don't recommend Thunder Blast for hybrid. It is too soft and poly eats it up easily.
My current setup is Blast with Beast XP.
I have to restring my racket again after 6 hrs of play.
