Good hybrid setup for a pure aero

SinneGOAT

I’m here to ask about a good hybrid setup for my pure aero. I use a pure aero 2019, gonna try the plus just for the heck of it, love the racquet. What I wanted to know was what are some good hybrid setups with spin for this racquet? I can handle full poly, so maybe I’m asking for too much power. I like rpm blast 16 at 51-54 and was thinking triax 16/17 as a cross. I want to keep the spin high while adding a little more comfort and power. I also heard head velocity is a good multi for spin. I may also try Lux gut next week. What do you guys use for a hybrid in this frame? I’m also gonna try a string like pro line evolution for a softer poly than blast to use as the poly in the hybrid.

I just strung a Yonex DR 98 with Klip Legend 15L/Head Sonic Pro 16 at 53/51# and have heard good results from that. If you're more for a poly main, I did a VCore 100 with Solinco Confidential 16/Yonex Dynawire 16 at 51/53#. Confidential has really sharp edges similar to Volkl Cyclone, and that's the main reason he decided to not put gut in the crosses on this one as he felt the Confidential would cut through it too quickly.

I have strung a few PA and PAD with poly on the mains and sgut crosses. I would recomend try a thinner gage on a slick poly like Proline II that is comfortable and gives you a little more power back, or to keep it toned down in power but soft feel try TierOne Ghostwire and if it comes to adding even more spin, Firewire on the mains has been the one that produced even more rotation on the ball.

There are a few strings (that I would like to try) that could work for you as crosses like cream, YPTAir or TF HDMX or Triax.

I use Gamma Glide Cross @ 53 or 54 Lbs. and Solinco Tour Bite 20 in the mains at 49 or 50 Lbs.

Spin, Power and comfortable!

Fire wire boost sounds like the ticket. I just got the 2019 PA and put garbage pros pro in it just to settle the grommets but I actually kinda like the strings. Hexaspin twist full bed at 45lbs. I’ll do the FW boost next.

1) VCT 1.30mm full bed 8 years and holding
2) TireOne Boost FW1.25mm / GW1.22mm. hit nicely with a lot of spin and power, but stiffer than VCT 1.30mm. I have a mains just beginning to stick out of place around the 14-hour mark without playing singles. Will mark the bottom of each cross with a sharpie after hitting. 1 mark for two sets, with marks for singles on one side and doubles on another.
3) YPTA 1.25mm mains / Tecnifibre HDMX 1.35mm crosses (uber soft)
4) Lux 1.30mm Natural Gut 58M / Ghostwire 1.28mm or Head Hawk 1.25mm crosses

Shaped strings and soft multis or Natural Gut just don't last long. NG mains and shaped crosses are expensive setups that break quickly. NG mains and slick smooth crosses don't lock the string bed either.

Pure Aero seems to be a very powerful racquet that has a lot of access to spin.
If you like RPM, then why not keep using it? Can try lower tension and re-string more frequently.
If you want something more comfortable, how much access to spin are you willing to give up? A favorite setup of mine is Head Velocity/Isospeed Cream for a comfortable, very predictable setup.

"More power" is often misunderstood. Most people are thinking good energy return. For a given swing, the ball flies off your racquet at higher velocity. However, we really want the opposite. We want less powerful strings so that we can swing harder and generate our own power.

For example, Head Velocity is a low powered multi. It has low energy return. For the same given swing, the ball will land shorter. So you have to swing harder. By doing so, you generate more racquet head speed; more velocity and in many cases, more topspin. Most of us rec players have the problem of keeping the ball in the court. So a lower powered setup is what we should go for.

since this came up in this thread: if I go with shaped poly mains, how thin can I go with slick poly crosses? Will 1.10 MSV Focus Hex be ok in crosses or will it shred through mains really quick?

The main will slide over a small area of itself and if the size difference is too big, I have noticed the mains get sliced thru quicker and then the string bed is locked up which is awful on full poly hybrids.


There is always a trade off, what is more important, the spin? control? durability? feel?

You can switch different types if strings as mains or crosses depending on the compromise you are willing to take and adjust tensions accordingly.
