I've tried at least 5 different combos of gut main/poly cross, and Gut/MB was by far the softest, longest playable setup. I found all of them to impart spin similarly, although even so, MB cross was right there with MSV cross.
How does MB compare to WC Scoprion or SPPP as a cross? I wonder if this has to do with MB being a 18 gauge string as well. I wonder if Scorpion was offered in 18 gauge whether that would be better.
