Ok guys, so these are the strings I have (my tension's around 55)
-Wilson Synthetic Gut Extreme 16
-Wilson Sensation 16
-Wilson NXT 16 (1/2)
-Luxilon Alu Power (1/2)
-Babolat strings including babolat pro hurricane tour, regular pro hurricane, conquest, etc..

You don't have to post the best hybrid, but if you have tested any good combination please tell me which is it and why. :)
Thanks in advance!

None, i would go with full ALU

NXT with alu power is my favourite, good feel and compliments the alu very nicely. Unfortunately it doesn't last very long and frays pretty quick against the alu. I didn't like Sensation at all, it all felt a bit "dead". Full alu power is nice at low tension, a bit wirey feeling but very good spin. I string with alu power in the mains for reference.

i use kirschbaum supersmash spiky w/ alu power rough. The kirschbaum strings are softer and behave like the lux. Alot of people use them, and they got really good reviews.They are also textured, so you get good spin. Like Alu power, the kirschbaum strings never move. Using Hybrids, you really do get the best of both worlds.

I wouldn't recommend a poly/poly hybrid. If your arm can take it and you like the feel of poly then play a full job of Alu Power, otherwise your best bet is to hybrid with a nice poly.

Alu Power is a nice string so hybrid it with something of similar quality.

I would suggest NXT 16 if you're not a string breaker.

If you are a string breaker, then try a more resistant multifilament stiring like WeissCannon Explosiv.

If you've got money to burn then Natural Gut is the best bar none.

By the way, if I use NXT and Lux Alu, which one would be better for the mains and the crosses? I'm not a string breaker by the way

Always put the best string in the mains, cos the mains give the most feedback, in that case the ALU

Yes, the mains set the playing characteristics. A while ago I used to play n90s with gut in the mains and ALU crosses, because I wanted the arm-friendliness of gut. And for wintery / rainy weather I put NXT instead of gut in the mains, for the same reason.

The newer polys are more arm-friendly, so now I use all-poly.

Old thread found through google, but I am wondering, many years have passed since then, lot of new strings as well, isn't there any new recommendation in this matter?
