    I cross my poly mains with a nice multi... most of the time i use a Tecnifibre product, usually X1 Biphase. Sometimes i will experiment with a new string. Decided to try Signum's Pro Fiber High Tec EXP multi... not a new string, but new to me. Here's my set up: Dunlop 200 4D 16x19...

    ALU Rough mains/ SPPP (Pure) crosses?

    For a set up looking for spin/control and is not so harsh... but will hold tension... does this combo sound crazy? Will be used in a MG Prestige MP (both around 17g) tension mid -2 (ish).
