question brought up to me regarding hybrid stringing today

I thought I would address my question here on my blog. I am always happy to answer questions on stringing. Question was :If I had a poly string and a textured synthetic, how would I hybrid them? I know that usually the poly goes in the mains and the syn is used to soften the stringbed. But if it's a textured syn, does being in the crosses make its properties useless

my answer is as follows... I am happy to get any other recommendations as well.... if you use lux alu power rough on the main strings you will get the benefit of a poly string (durability) and the benefit of a rough string (top spin) because the main strings help with the playability. IF you string a synthetic gut on the cross,you can go thinner which is good also, and if you use a multifilament (nxt,technifibre nrg, prince premier,etc) it will help with softening the bed a bit and give you a little feel....

Please remember that poly strings, although they dont break as fast as other strings, lose tension as fast or quicker than some synthetics, so you will lose playablity and control even though your not breaking the strings, so dont leave them in your racket for 3 months if you play 3-4 times a week...
