If you are willing to experiment further, I recommend trying Polyfibre Black Venom in your hybrid setup.

I've had success with Technifibre NRG2 17 in the mains at 58 lb and Polyfibre Black Venom 16L in the crosses at 55 lb on my Redondo Mid racquets. I used to play a full bed of NRG2. I found that I get extra pop, a bigger sweetspot, and a slightly stiffer stringbed by adding the Black Venom.

I don't know how Black Venom will play with Head Rip Contol, but it might be worth a try.
Thanks for your tip but I decided to stay with my BA98 as I seem to play better with it and I think the feel/touch of the BA98 is much better than the Redondo.

The BA98 is only not solid and stable enough in stock condition to me. That's why I leaded my BA98s up to 360 grams. Lead around the whole head from 4 to 8 and about 10 grams of silicone gel into the handle. Leather grip and overgrip.

It would be a really perfect frame if it was as rock solid as the Redondo.
5.0 level all-court player - Finally a "three of a kind" and of the same colour (Völkl Classic 10 Pro 2010).
