Just strung blackout mains 46 lbs and pp syn gut 1.30 crosses 49 lbsOrdered some strings: red devil, black force, gutex, cc+, ultimate fiber, superior gut.
Today I tried a hybrid w gutex in mains, red devil in crosses @25/20 kg on my TFight 315 DC. Played really well, power, touch, spin, it is all there. Next time I'll try some other combos. Any suggestions?
Possibly having a softer poly in the mains with a syn cross just doesn't give anything great. The mains will notch fast and get stuck on syn cross. Then you lose spin and control. Guess it is probably pretty comfortable but there are better setups to give thatHow that? Just bought them among others.
The reel should be $25-$27 plus some shipping if you buy from EU.Played yesterday for the first time with Black Out 1.24, i strung it at 44 lbs due to my elbow, and wow, the string is really soft. No arm pain.
If you play with topspin like me, you should try this string. You feel like Casper Ruud at some moment, no joke
Good control, good feel. At $40 cad the reel, it’s just unreal.
Gonna try at 48lbs. Should be the perfect tension because it’s a low-medium powered string.
It was a bit trampoline effect at this tension yesterday (44), but at 48/50 lbs, I already know it will be great.
Not easy to string ( crosses )
Other than that, would like to reorder another reel.
I tried for the first time approximately the same: poly mains (blackout) and syn gut crosses. Result = it's not for me.
Please update as I prefer Syn G/ Poly too.I tried for the first time approximately the same: poly mains (blackout) and syn gut crosses. Result = it's not for me.
I play much better with multi or syngut mains with poly crosses.
My best setup was velocity main and lux element crosses. I play my best tennis with thoses 2 strings.
You have more spin and control with a syngut or multi on mains IMO
Gonna try syngut 130 PP Mains and BO crosses. Already know will be better. Already know the durability would be around 2 hours.
Black Out mains and Red Devil cross works well for me, you just need to dial in your preferred tension to get both good spin and control.I used to play BO mains x PP crosses, then tried once BO mains x some unknown crosses and liked it more than PP (my post on this finding). I'm looking for crosses alternatives while keeping BO mains, while other good mains are also welcomed.
I've bought the following and want to try various hybrids. What are some GOOD and BAD hybrids from the following?
- Black Out 1.24
- Plus Power 1.18
- Black Force 1.24
- Cyber Power 1.25
- Red Devil 1.24
- Syn Gut 1.30
IMO concept is also pretty durable in that it does not notch very quickly and as a bonus is not too stiff. Nice overall string in general. I prefer the smaller gauge though 1.22mmI read this whole thread, and it seems Concept is really resistant with the best tension maintenance
Thanks for that, I have to agree. I also get more depth with Syn G / Poly as I hit flat. What was your tension ?Just played one hour.
My advice :
Put the synthetic gut on mains and any other copoly PP on crosses.
Don’t do the contrary.
Just tried with Syn gut main / concept cross
And Syn gut main / blackout crosses
both are great with plenty of spin and control.
I’m an ex 5.0 and i can generate enough spin by myself, but i can say : wow ! You got spin with this setup !
Overall excellent feel. Much better than poly pp main/ syn gut crosses.
Poly are perfect in FB only, in my opinion.
