Substituting Eruption 1.18 for Hyper G 1.15, in an Eruption 1.18/Black Force 1.14 poly/poly hybrid

The racquet is the Aerogel 200. I strung HG/BF in it @51/51, but with the temperatures rising I strung it @52/52 this time. I'm out of Black Force anyway, so it's time to make a Pro's Pro order. I was going to go along on packs of HG for special occasions until I realized that if I substitute Eruption for the mains, the new hybrid could be a steady diet.

Is it too reckless to just make an order with a reel of Eruption 1.18 in it without testing a set first, or is it close enough to HG 1.15 to be a safe bet?

Much appreciated

I ordered a reel just to give it a go. At that price, you can't really go wrong...

Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I can assure you, it's not the same string as Hyper G or Signum Plasma. It will probably have more control, but less feel and comfort. That's just going off the 'feel' of the string.

In the meantime you might have ordered already. Quite a nice string, and for me similar to hyper g. Maybe more comfortable, at least I did not think Hyper G to be super comfortable. Not sure if less durable than HG, but the price is a killer. Nice bet!

I decided to get 2 sets of Eruption 1.18. Then I noticed that the Aerogel 200 is too heavy/too much sw for me. I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger on the reel. I'll try Eruption on my Biomimetic 200 in a full bed.
