    What do you think about this hybrid? Babolat Tonic + Ball Feel gut and Technifiber Nrg2 16? Should I put the gut in the mains or the crosses? If I put the gut in the crosses, should I still string it at a higher tension then the technifiber? I am thinking maybe the tonic at 61 lbs and the nrg2 at 58lbs. I am a 5.0+ 16 yr old and currently use the Babolat Pure Control MP with lead tape at 3 and 9 o'clock. Thanks for the advise. Ill take any suggestions.

    I'm just curious as to what you are trying to achieve with this hybrid. If you put the NRG in the crosses, chances are that they'll break fast or lose its tension. You would probably be better of using a solid core synthetic in the cross for a gut hybrid. That way, you can cut down cost and retain most of the feeling of the gut. However, if you really want to try your combo, by all means go ahead. Also, you might want to increase the tension of the NRG since it loses its tension a lot faster then gut.
