    I've recently used the Gosen OG Micro (although in 1.30) in hybrids with the Gosen SP17 (quite a muted response but I liked it until the mains died after about 8 hours), the Klip K-Boom 17g (holds tension reasonably well, nice power, crisp but not enough spin for me although I use the Prince Ozone Tour MP, which is very spin-friendly), and the Signum Pro Plasma Hextreme 1.23 (good pace, spin, control and feel, very good tension stability, I might go with this one in the future). In all the three applications, the Gosen OG Micro did exactly what I wanted it to do - soften the stringbed and add feel, so I'll probably stick with it as a standard cross string in hybrids.
