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.
