4.0 player looking for the best Hybrid string combo Spin and Comfort

I did a Fischer MSpeed 105 with Solinco Tour Revolution 18 at 30#. I was surprised by the softness and spin, yet the amount of control it still had was really good too.

Your favourite soft poly in the mains. Monogut Zyex in the crosses.
That set vs Favorite poly with soft smooth poly cross - how should it play - it terms of power\comfort\control\spin?
I mean the poly cross loses its coating fast like all polys. ZX will be sliding freely longer in that sense.

The ZX allows the poly to move freely, which gives less wear on the main string, so the set up lasts. ZX provides a lot of comfort. Not the best string control wise, but in the pursuit of comfort compromises must be made, and the main string is the main provider of control. ZX is quite powerful, so best teamed up with a low powered main. I think it's worth a shot. The biggest upside for me, is the longevity of the bed. I can easily get 12+ hours of comfortable play with that set up.

Personally like Volkl V Square Mains with a multi cross, so long as the string pattern is open enough to get good bite (open 18x20 or any 16x19).

Doesn't aggravate my elbow, wrist or shoulder outside of technique issues.

The time tested hybrid is gut mains/soft poly crosses. My current fave is VS17 gut/HyperG Soft 18 string at 47/44 lbs on a Pure Strike Tour. I get about 20 hours before the gut breaks or the poly goes dead.

My current set up is Gamma Syn Gut 16 57lbs in the mains and Yonex Poly Tour Pro 16L 54 in the crosses. Plays extremely well and gives all the qualities of a full bed of poly.

Going to give it a try with ZX Pro 1.15mm.
Thanks.

What frame and string pattern? What is your style of play or favorite shots? (Flat, slice, top spin, baseline, all court, net & doubles)

What is the current string setup? What would you like to improve from the current?

I've enjoyed ashway kevlar mains, zyex crosses . Lasts a lot longer than polys too. Check the TW reviews on it and see if it sounds like something you would like to try

Hi Steve,

Is your Mspeed yellow and green one? Did you string it fullbed at 30# lbs? If I plan to use fullbed multi 17, do you have any tension suggestion? I am thinking 53/50 lbs. Thanks.

I am currently playing Babolat PS G3 16x19:
Solinco HG Mains 17 / Gamma LW Pro Crosses at 51/53 and really like it
Solinco Confidential 17 / Gamma LW Pro 16 51/53 - also very good

Both or comfortable with plenty of power and spin potential.
The last time I tried a poly/copoly hybrid I did start to feel some elbow soreness so I stay away from them, could be I kept them too long.

Currently using Prince Syn Gut Duraflex 16g mains with Isospeed Baseline 17L crosses at 55 lbs. Durability isn't great (6-10 hrs) but I'd rather my strings be the consumables than my elbow tendons.
