Yep. Everyone wants to try and find the silver bullet by using a hybrid. I tried as well but at the end of the day a full bed of gut is the best set up. For me anyway. I never have to worry about tension loss and I am amazed how long Tonic lasts in my racket before breaking. For this reason its really not anymore expensive than restringing a hybrid every two weeks because the poly goes dead. Can you hit with as much spin? No but this setup fits my serve and volley game just fine. I am a former 5.0 college player who now plays 4.5 due to age. (4
I would agree that full gut is probably the best setup for a S&V game. If you are a baselined and want the spin, a hybrid is probably the way to go.
