Nice review on the MSV.
I had used a similar setup a year ago, BDE gut main/MSV hex cross, and recall very similar playability. Spin became too big though, that my flat-directional control suffered a bit, as I prefer to mix spin, flat, slice, etc. Gut/MSV seemed to perform better for an all spin game.
btw, my scorpion main/gut cross trial didn't bode as well as I hoped. Back to full polystar for me, it's too inexpensive to pass up for this self-stringer, I've realized having fresh strings every few matches plays more reliable than even a gut hybrid over a longer timeline. Somehow full turbo is giving better all-court feel than many poly/gut setups I've tried, including scorpion. It also takes to both flat and spin shots quite well.
Austrian PT280s, for almost 20 years.
Have yet to find something new with this buttery feel and precision.
