    Poly Multi Hybrid Stringing question for durability and arm problems

    Hello all, been a long time follower of these threads and reading as much as I can. Realized my arm can’t handle poly anymore, or maybe it never could haha. Anyways, I’m looking to switch to a poly multi hybrid. I play a 98 yonex vcore 305g weighted up with a leather grip and 2g lead at the top...

    An excellent hybrid — MSV Focus Hex Soft w. MSV Swift

    I came to this hybrid by looking for a very spinny setup, with the great tension maintenance, all while being very arm friendly. I moved to MSV Focus Hex Soft (FHS) 17 because I wanted a bit more tension maintenance and spin than what I had with Dunlop Black Widow 17. I found FHS unbelievably...

    What other string rough that are just like the TCS rough?

    Hey all, as you can tell by now "rough" in tennis strings are very very very vague. I'm new to poly rough strings. I'm looking for the same "rough" as the "rough" in the TCS Rough. I just prefer this kind of "rough" over all the other "rough". What I'm not looking for are the shaped string...

    Gut crosses notching super early in Poly/Gut hybrid

    Hi, I tried both a gut/poly and poly/gut hybrid for the first time, and after a few weeks, i preferred the characteristics of the poly mains, however there was insane notching after just a few hours. The poly was basically drilled far into the gut, and really decreased the spin potential. On...

    Solinco Confidential/Vanquish Recommended Tension

    Hey guys, Just bought a reel of Solinco Vanquish to hybrid with my Solinco Confidential in Yonex Ezone 98 Tour and wondering what is a good tension for both. I typically use full bed Solinco Confidential in the range of 47-50 lbs. It is my first time using a hybrid setup and not sure if I...

    Crosses for Tier One Black Knight 18g (1.18): scenarios for distal bicep tenderness

    Been stupidly playing full bed BK 16g (21kg) in Vcore 95 for a solid 6-month period and my bicep tendon is asking me to switch things up. I'll be using Velocity MLT 16g for the time being. But as I was thinking of transitioning back to BK, I'd like some opinions on some of the hybrid setups...

    Best gut hybrid for RF97A (especially crosses)?

    I'd like to put the first gut hybrid on my RF97A. I want to use Luxilon Natural Gut 1.30 for mains (I had a great feel with full bed on the RF97A already). But I'm unsure about the Poly for the crosses (and I don't want to mess it up). So I was thinking the following... - probably best to use...

    Crosses for Poly Mains

    Currently on Ezone 100 Plus - mains are Lynx Tour orange 17 which is a fantastic poly string strung at 48lbs. As I don’t want to go any lower on tension so that I don’t compromise on control, what would be the best multifilament for the crosses to soften the string bed, make it more comfortable...

About me: -3.0 making progress towards the next level. 3 months with 1:1 coaching which is making a big diff -String breaker...

    Isospeed Control Classic mains poly crosses tension question

    Has anyone control classic (or professional classic) as the mains in a poly hybrid? I had switched to Control Classic to get over some arm issues, which have since resolved. I have gotten pretty used to playing with it, but I would like to see if I can get a bit more spin out of my setup. So...

    Hi, I would like to try this hybrid stringing and would appreciate some guidance before I waste too many meters of strings with experimenting. :) Which one should go on the mains and what tension shall I use? I would like to maximize spin&comfort. So far I played mostly with full bed of Yonex...

    RPM Blast "hybrid": 18 in Mains, 17 in crosses

    Hey everyone, After reading the 18 gauge (1.20mm) customer reviews of RPM Blast and considering I'm not destroying my 17 gauge strings in 10 hours (I should hit harder and spinnier, I know), would an 18g mains (for bite) and a 17g crosses (for control?) a good mix? Apparently, a full bed of 18...

    Hi guys, I'm a dutch former teaching pro looking for the ideal string setup op my prince 93p 14x18. My style of play is an allcourt game with very high ball speeds. I control the ball with a combination of launch angle and spin. My baseline strokes have a rather flat trajectory, while still...

    Wet/damp Weather alternative to Wilson Champions Choice

    Hi All, I currently use the Wilson Champions choice hybrid and I am loving it. However, I am reluctant to play with it when it is raining or when it is damp as I’ve heard natural gut will easily break if it is exposed to water. Is the any alternatives to Wilson Champion’s choice that can be...

    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...

    Speed gains with poly / multi?

    Hi all. I primarily play full poly. I have used poly / multi hybrids in the past. I currently use a Zepp sensor on my HEAD racquet and am working towards developing more pace on my strokes. Technique can definitely be improved! If I switched to using multis on a cross, would this aid with adding...

    Best round polly for “hybriding”

    What is your recommendation for a round polly that has a great tension maintenance to be put in a hybrid, in mains with a Velocity MLT. The objective is for decent spin, tension maintenance and comfort (comfort can be left to multi/syn crosses to do their stuff).

    Luxilon 4G soft better in a hybrid or full bed?

    I played for many years with NG mains /Alu power crosses. Love it for its power, feel and spin....control was there but for me the “perfect” balance between all this aspects never lasted long, making me restring very often and I always needed to have at least one or two fresh string rackets...

    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...

    Hybrid setup where MSV spin plus break in 15 mins

    Hi all, I’m using a hybrid setup of Volkl Cyclone 1.25 mm(mains) and MSV Spin Plus 1.30 mm (crosses), both on 24.5kg in my Wilson Pro staff 315g (16x19). Very often the MSV spin plus just snaps after 10 or 20 mins of playing. Most of the time it breaks somewhere in the middle of the 3th or 4th...

    Why some multis unravel and which for hybrid?

    I dont know a whole lot about string as you can tell from my question, but here it is: I used in my Yonex Ezone 98 2020 a hybrid of SolincoTB in mains and Wilson NXT in crosses (@23kg), which is the perfect setup for me... EXCEPT that durability of tension hold is not great and it mostly just...

    Co-poly hybrid: HGS+Cream

    Hi all, Switched from fullbed RPM Team to fullbed Isospeed Cream recently, and loved the new feel and responsiveness. Was looking forward to Hyper-G Soft for some extra control, but, HGS feels somewhat dead compared to Cream. Yes, better control and spin than Cream, but lacking the power and...
