Have one racket that just has basic synthetic that came in it, and it feels much better on volleys and slice. Just don't get enough topspin. If I ever found any reasonably priced non poly that did not break right away, and that I got enough topspin with, I would be happy.

That used to be my go to setup until I moved to the Isospeed Classic strings. Durability with the poly in the cross tends to be quite low with this setup so I would recommend string savers in the area that you wear out the most.

I use a very headlight, control racket myself and still do not prefer full multi, gut or a combination of the two. But that's me...
