I thought V would last longer than others multi.... Especially the 15L (1.35) gauge (yes it exist in France).a friend of mine uses v / cream in a dr 98 (I myself too from time to time) . since cream is less durable than other polys it is a toss up if either the mains or crosses break first.
if you are an advanced player don´t expect to get more than 4h-5h out of it (3h or less are more realistic), but no multi /poly setup in an open pattern frame will last long. maybe premier control in 1,40 lasts longer than velocity ?
but performance wise v / cream is a very good and comfortable full poly sustitute
BZ is a great cross in any setup, right?yes, v should last longer than other multis (that fray) like for example weis cannon explosive etc., but it is still a multi.
v / bz should be a good combination (tried bz in the crosses with gut not too long ago, to tame the power in my dr 98. gut/cream in the dr 98 is just too powerful/erratic in the summertime.)
Also with gut main?i guess, but for me its the upper limit in regard to stiffness.
Do you think V 15L (1.35) could not last longer than gut on red clay with smooth poly cross? V is not more durable than HDX?I get longer survival with gut mains than V mains FWIW. Play on Har Tru.
If you want a spin game then shaped poly with smooth poly cross is the clay answer. Have you considered FireWire Boost hybrid? That seems up you alley.
There is also Tier One Ghost Wire and Dyreex Fibermax to try as a comfy and slick cross.For me, cream and Ashaway ZX are the best crosses for not killing your mains or your arm!
Thank you. Bye bye V/poly hybrid!!!Velocity is more durable than some other multis I've tried - in a *full bed*. But I tried a Velocity/Cream hybrid once and after 90 minutes of play the V mains (16 gauge) were already notched through almost halfway, which was definitely faster than a full bed of V. I don't know how the clay would affect it, but the Cream crosses seemed to be harder on it than V crosses, at least if you hit a lot of spin like I do. Spin was nothing special either. I definitely get more spin from a full bed of poly, or Gut/poly.
