I see a few people use syngut or multi in the mains, and poly in the crosses. Why? What are the benefits?
Interesting. For me, I use poly for spin and string longevity, and I get the most benefit when it's in the mains. Right now I use Solinco Tour Bite in the mains, and Gosen Micro in the crosses. The only time I've seen the poly eat the crosses was when I used a really soft multi, like Gamma LiveWire. Currently, the TB will break long before the syngut crosses.
I agree, better power, pocketing and feel with the natural gut, multi or syn gut on the mains and ALU on the crosses. It's no wonder Federer, Djoko and Murray use this setup.
It's a mistake to think that poly on the mains lasts longer. I have tried it both ways and found the softer string on the mains last longer, because there is no sawing effect.
full Signum Tornado Pro 1.17... thinnest for best spin ;) 25 kg tension for better control...
Signum Tornado really impressed me how much texture it has along with how much pliability. Very resilient string to the end. Maybe doesn't last very long.
