    I have just done a hybrid for a client and good friend of mine. He has just bought an all matte black Wilson Prostaff RF97 and wanted natural gut and poly hybrid with a white Wilson overgrip. Racket was strung on my Gamma Progression STII with Wise 2086 electronic tension head. I will let the pictures do the talking:

    I usually don't care for matching color with my racquets, but I decided to give color coordinating a try. Strung my Prince Classic Response 97 w/ Babolat Spiraltek @60lbs and trying out a new grip for me, Yonex Super Grap.

    At one time while experimenting with grips and strings I would choose my next string according to the color OG I was testing...and vice versa.

    Thanks! The stabilizer bar gives it a way but it looks pretty cool. Sadly the POG is not stiff enough for me and flexes too much. The high tension was arm friendly if not very low powered. Betting the silicone helped

    Well the string has a pretty muted feel, which isn't necessarily bad, but it didn't have enough give (pocketing) at the same time, and this combined really made me feel disconnected from the ball.

    I also felt like balls had less spin and oomph on them than with Black Shark. It just felt more like playing with a plank than with a stringbed if that makes sense.

    I can imagine this string really paying dividends if I just redirected pace with flatter stroke mechanics, but it didn't suit my game at all.

    I see...this one is for a client...it will be their first time using a DR98 with full bed spiky shark. Hopefully they will like it :D

    This is what happens when mothers give their young daughters control over which string they want...

    Put V-Torque in my Instinct adaptive. Great color match, Hyper G would prob look cool as well.

    UC is pretty low powered so that's positive news for sure! Thanks for the update.

    Dunlop Biomimetic 400 Tour with Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution. Nice string. Good pop, pocketing, control and spin. Bit crispy on the wrist at first but softens up nicely.

    Okay lol I was gonna guess who you were. Based on the 4.0 and lefty. I have a pretty good idea who you are now. If I see you I'll bring it up next time in person.

    I don't know about the stringjob (irregular ATW), but the string is really awesome for 12 euro the reel (Strategem 10).

    Yonex PTS would match better the color scheme :)

    Only positive impressions - I am now busy with preparing the court for the season - rolling, drilling for water, new clay, etc. :)

    Looks like "Field of Dreams."That's a reference to an American baseball movie where a guy builds a baseball field in the middle of his cornfield. Wish we had some red clay around these parts! Thanks for the link to the S10 string review.
