Multi Cross

Hey TW, so i've been looking for a good cross for my hybrid set up. Right now I'm considering Prince Premier Touch both the 16g and 17g. I see that the PPT is super soft and plush which should compliment a poly quiet nicely. Secondly i've also been quite interested in Gosen AK Control 17g as well because according to TWU it should play similar but with much more spin. How do these two compare in terms of spin, power, comfort, and durability? I'll be planning to hybrid it with ultra cable mains. If there's any others you'd recommend please do tell :). Thanks!

In our experience, AK Control stays crisp longer whereas the surface of PPT breaks down quicker. PPT is softer but AKC is a tad more spin friendly. Unless maximum comfort is your only concern, I'd start with AK Control. It holds up better over time and should give you plenty of comfort and pop.

A full bed of AK Control will offer comfort, durability with a solid combination of power and spin. we do not sell Angell racquets so you will have to ask them on tension and stringing instructions.
