NEED ADVICE: SPPP 17 w/ NXT Tour 16?

I have never used a poly/multi hybrid and am looking to try SPPP17 at 52 in the mains and NXT Tour 16 at 55 in the crosses.

I currently use NXT Tour 17 at 55 in my Vantage and love it but the durability is not all that great.

What do you guys think about my proposed hybrid? I want a hybrid with good pop but control as well and also one that is arm friendly.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm currently playing with SPPP Pure 16L mains @ 54# and NXT Tour 16 crosses @ 57# on my Volkl Tour 8.

Plays well. Good spin control. Good power. Good feel. I am getting some soreness in my elbow from this string. I'll probably take the tension down a couple of #'s the next restring. I'd imagine that the 17 will give even better spin control.

I have ever used SPPP 17L main and ematrix 17 cross on RDS001mp. It was OK. Then I replaced ematrix by gosen og sheep 17, which feels still soft and much better for me. I think since SPPP is soft enough (especially 17 gauge) as poly, both NXT and multi will be fine as cross.
