Radical Tour 630 Zebra-Gut/Poly hybrid

Interested in some feedback.

Thinking of stringing the Zebra with VS Team/4G Soft. What tension? I played the Zebra with a full bed of Ultra Cable at 46 and really liked it. I was thinking of stringing the gut at 50 and 4g at 46.

Any experiences with a similar setup?

Thanks!

Oooohhhhhhhh. Me too!! Love to hear the answers on this. Have my MG Rad MP at 53/48 with luxilon gut and big banger in crosses. Favorite setup ever. Was gonna go more like 58/52 on the OS that I just bought today. Also grabbed a MG OS for good measure so I can try different tensions on the 2 for good measure.

I have the Radical Tour zebra MP with cheap natural gut and cheap poly cross. Feels really good with 50# mains and 45# cross tension. Played it for a good month now and just now it is showing signs of fraying.

+ 1 here. Similar setup for stock Zebra @ 50/46 with cheap natural guts, I have another Zebra but capped and with leather grip that I strung @52/48.

I will try a gut/poly combo too....recently acquired a MP Zebra (used to play them in the 90's and loved them) and have been hitting almost exclusively with it again. It's crazy that a 25 year old racquet can hold it's own against modern sticks! When my current setup breaks or becomes unusable I'll be putting Klip Natural gut in the mains and a smooth poly, yet undecided, in the crosses.

The gut/poly really wakes up this control stick. I loved it the 1st time I tried with that setup. Hard to go back to some other hybrid after trying the gut/poly one. It is very addictive, at least in my case :)

Well got if back from the stringer about a week ago. Took a little getting used to. 53/48. Vs gut main 16 and alu power 16l cross. Had to alter my grip to full Western from semi Western for some weird reason. When I did this thing really came alive. Not as powerful as I had expected. I have the microgel midplus with the same setup and I find them close in power level. But my serves, volleys and one handed backhand are insane. And punches at the net are unstoppable. This is my go to for sure now. Never liked anything more.

Yeah once you tried gut mains/poly crosses hybrid it is really hard to go to some other string combo afterwards...
