I play with the same racquet. I have generally hybrid babolat VS with Lux Rough. However for my second racquet, I'm stringing with gut VS team 17G at 55 lbs. I used to string at higher tensions but last time I strung my hybrid 55 mains and 52 crosses. First 2 or 3 sessions I felt a bit strange then I got used to the lower tension and really enjoy now. Feel/touch is amazing also made me hit cleaner with better technique. I had a tendency to sometime slap the ball for a put away shot and could get away with it at higher tensions. Not so with lower tension, you have to put heavy top spin with pace. Feels great on the arm too! Looking forward to full bed of gut 17g. I'm going to try out hybrid one racquet and the other full bed of gut. I find my second racquet just looses tension and playability sitting in the bag while I use my other raquet. Full bed of gut won't loose tension or playability. Also nice to have full gut to play with in friendly matches or practice.
I play with a Tecnifibre 320 V02 max. As a full poly user, I am experimenting with various brands but so far I love the Black code or the Signum pro at 57.
