    Gut / poly hybrid - same tension or differential?

    Hi all, What tension differential do you all recommend in a gut / poly hybrid setup? Most ATP players seem to string 2-4 lbs higher on the gut mains than the poly crosses, but they also switch to fresh strings before the poly loses much tension. I've been using a 2 lbs differential (mains...

    Which poly to hybrid with natural gut?

    I'm seriously considering trying natural gut again as the last time was when I was about 12 years old. I have no memory of the feel. The natural gut I would get is Babolat VS Touch 1.25 (which is apparently VS Team?) and get it strung on the mains in one of my VCORE 95 rackets. I usually have...

    Weaving Natural Gut and Poly Hybrids

    Wilson champions choice overpriced?

    Wilson champions choice is $39.90, so for 2 racquets it’s $79.90. But if you buy the setup seperarely, it’s $41.95 for the Wilson gut and $17.95 for Luxilon Alu Power rough, which totals to $59.90 to string 2 racquets. So am I missing something or is it just corporate greed?

    Gut Kevlar Hybrid in OS

    I've searched several older posts here but have been unable to get a good answer. I play with an 105" Dunlop 300G with a tight 18x20 pattern. My favorite hybrid setup right now is Klip Legend 17 (double coated) with a smooth poly in the crosses. I string the gut mains at 66lbs and string the...
