Strings for a spin-heavy baseliner on a APDGT?

Im having trouble deciding on 2 combinations of string to test out! I was thinking...

Racquet 1 - RPM Blast @ 58
Racquet 2 - PHT mains, VS Gut Crosses @ 58

But then I read that RPM doesnt last long and Hybriding PHT with gut is a bit pointless, hmm, so im undecided. Not sure about gut at all, I'd prefer to stick to full poly as I never really liked gut in my previous racquets, too soft.

Want the combo to have awesome spin potential with control and a reasonably amount of power, spiky shark? Alu Power?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I play with Tour Bite, that definitely gives you lots of power and spin. Same with Alu Rough, though that's considerably more expensive for me.

Spikey Shark brings the spin big time. Big Banger Ace is great at lower tensions. A full bed of PHT bites hard. Didn't really notice any difference between Alu Rough and Alu Power in the spin production. Still damn good, though pricey. Of all of those Spikey Shark had the most spin potential by a noticable amount. After that the others are pretty close together imo. I'm waiting for my pack of Tour Bite to arrive as well as SPPP. I hate having expectations (a la RPM Blast).

Yeah, from what I read about RPMB its not that great, Im not going to bother with it this time. Think im going to check out Alu Power Rough and PHT/VS, ordering some bits now!

Cheers for the advice, I've just ordered a set of Pro Hurricane Tour and a set of Alu Power Rough, RPM and Tour Bite are next!

Duralast is terrible compared to the current crop of top polys. It loses tension very quickly, spin is mediocre, and it tears your arm off. Only my opinion of course. That Nadal used this means very little. He could out spin us with a badminton racquet.

if your looking for heavy spin i would definitely recommenced the solinco tour bite. the tour bite really kills it in the spin department.
