I see from your signature that you're using Hyperion as a cross of natural gut. Can you tell us how your set-up plays?
I advise against the Tornado due to the sharp edges on the poly. It is a great string, but not as a cross string with natural gut. It will decrease the life of your hybrid. In general, stick with smooth slippery polys as your cross string - whatever it is.
