    I am asking what tensions others are using in a hybrid of Kevlar 16 mains and synthetic gut 16 crosses. Do you drop the Kevlar tension 5-10 % from your normal synthetic gut tension? Also, how does your set-up change with Kevlar 18 mains and synthetic gut 17 crosses?

    The set-up is for a friend that hits big with spin and uses a light, oversized racquet. He currently wants the tension (thick syn gut, nylon , or poly) at the max listed for the frame. Any mishit results in shearing of the string at the frame. Thanks.

    When I went back to kevlar/syn hybrid, after everything else broke too quickly, I went down a few pounds in the mains but kept the crosses the same. That was just my preference to keep the crosses higher though. Right now I'm using Gosen kevlar and PSGD (57/61) and it's hollding up pretty well and it's fairly cheap. Good luck.
