I've never had Alu Rough mains and multis for crosses in any of my past hybrids. Sure enough, the Alu Rough sawed through the Yonex 850 crosses in no time flat.
Having my own stringer, I momentarily thought to keep the Alu Rough and just restring the crosses. But after reading the advice of professional stringers, I cut out the Alu in fear of warping the frame.
Anyone here has changed the crosses only? What's your experience?

The evil Kevlar! Just kidding. I tried Kevlar for a month and it reminded me of the old Prince Pro Blend I used in high school. Pro Blend was Kevlar.
Just kills my elbow after a week. Even if I strung it low. No wonder Agassi had wrist tendonitis using Kevlar.
Well, that's interesting, the waiver form. Kevlar takes so long to break, it's like thin rope!
The real problem is when I see my partners take out the crosses only, away from the stringer, and leave the racquet in their bag. This happened last night when I saw one of my junior college partners, trying to save a buck. He had his BLX 6.1 Tour with only Red Code mains. I had him snip it out right away. :)
My string machine, the Neos 1000, only has two supports. So I could not help him even if I wanted to.
Save a buck so you can have it do this spontaneously!
