I have a reel of 17g snake bite and have used it full bed and hybrid. My thoughts are that its fairly stiff and it does give off nice spin however the tension maintenance is moderate. The price is right but when using a hybrid it would be wise to use a smooth solid core syn gut because the edges of the SB will crew it up otherwise. For instance I used SB17 in the mains with PSGD18 and it was only playable for one set. No snap back and spin just died. However that one set was probably the best set I've ever played! Hope this helps!
