It is no secret that some of the world's best tennis players choose a natural gut hybrid for their string setups. Mixing natural gut with a co-poly string has been regarded as the ultimate string choice. Why? This combination's all-around performance is something that is just about impossible to find from a full bed of one string. The natural gut-poly hybrid offers a great blend of comfort, power, control, spin and feel. That's just about everything a player could want, so why doesn't everyone use it? For one, it is not the most budget-friendly option. That's where this Volkl V-Fuse Hybrid really shines. It's a premium natural gut hybrid at a more attractive price. Compared to some of the more expensive options, such as the Wilson Champion's Choice, our playtesters noticed the overall performance of this V-Fuse Hybrid to be pretty much on-par. One of our playtesters who uses a full bed of co-poly on a regular basis had to make some slight adjustments to adapt to the added power and change in launch angle coming from the natural gut. Beyond that short adjustment period, the all-around performance of this V-Fuse Hybrid landed no major complaints. Other than feeling somewhat indifferent to the black and yellow color combination, our playtesters got everything they could ask for in a stringbed. If you are looking to try a string setup similar to some pros at a reasonable price, look no further than Volkl V-Fuse Hybrid.
