BHBR is not great for control but has very very good spin potential and quite a bit of power. Also the spin causes awkward bounces for your opponent to deal with.
BHB7 has great spin, is soft, and medium to low power. It is the least durable though and tension maintenance is subpar..
There has been a good number of people who like the hybrid bhbr mains with bhb7 crosses and have raved about the results...
I will look around here and see if I can find any articles on this. I just love the BHBR so I may experiment with this set up to see if it might be better.
