For hitting flat (which is what I prefer in doubles) poly mains and multi crosses work great. Black5Edge mains and X-One Bi Phase or NRG2 works outstanding in a Wilson Pro Open for hitting flat crosscourt. Lots of power & control while very comfortable.

Loopy topspin is too easily poached in doubles IMO, but those guys who rip flat balls make it much tougher for the net guy to poach. Pat Baskower addresses this in her book, "The Art of Doubles".

Not the best for spin, but the control and feel in this setup work outstanding for me.

Mikler gets it.
