Comments: As it turned out, this Hybrid string set is a perfect match for my YIG Prestige MP at a lower tension. I
followed GAMMA's guidelines and strung the crosses 5% higher than my mains: at 50 lbs M/55 lbs X. I couldn't put the frame
down -- wanted to play and play for hours. I felt like putting an expensive set of tires on the Bentley. I have not broken the string
yet -- which is surprisingly good. I would have been through my 2nd set of strings with my usual Babolat Hybrid PH/N.VY setup
by now. The strings neither moved nor showed any signs of wear. They are a must try for any Head Prestige user. I'm thinking
about trying it on my YONEX RD7 frame next. Will report back shortly on the "spin production" as well as durability of the string
on more aggressive 16x19 string pattern vs. the 18x20 of the Prestige. I only wish the price was $5 lower.
Comments: I've been a Gamma user since the 1980s. I've always tried their new products, and always felt like I was
getting my money's worth. I've been eagerly waiting a product to replace their late, great Zo Tour. In my eyes, this product is an
epic fail. The much hyped cross strings seem to do nothing to add spin. For all I can tell, the Glide string is nothing more than
Gamma 2 with Armor All. The hybrid set as a whole produced minimal spin; far, far less spin than my other frame strung with 4G.
The only claim that Gamma made was the true is that the Glide improves comfort. That can be said for any poly/multi hybrid,
when think about it. Add to the fact that a string job with this product is going to cost you $12-15 more than a typical Luxilon or
Babolat string job, yet it will give you no better spin than a full bed of 17g multi. Imagine spending 40-some dollars for all the
performance of Prince synthetic gut.
Comments: Gamma Moto with Glide is the best combination for players look for maximum spin and power. I used
to use a full bed of Moto and had great results but now with Moto and Glide I am seeing even more benefits to my serve and
groundstrokes. I've seen increased spin on my kick serve allowing me to push opponents off of the court quickly, opening up the
court for an easy pass. I am also able to go for more from the baseline without having to change my swing. The Glide really does
help Moto snap back allowing for maximum bite on the ball. I've also seen increased control from the Glide which is great for
volleys at the net. It's the best hybrid I've used!
Comments: 3.5 male player with decent topspin for my level. Currently use Gamma Moto 17 with Babolat Pure
18x20 at 62 lbs. I just strung the same racquet with Motto/Glide hybrid at 58/62 lbs. I've noticed a slight increase in my spin on
my shots. The string bed is just a bit softer and perhaps bit more powerful. I think the Glide strings do work as advertised.
Comments: This is a great string. Fantastic amount of spin, especially on the serve. Groundstrokes go deep. Most
my lobs stay in. Good angles and crisp volleys! I strung these strings on a Wilson Juice 100 S at 58 lbs mains and 55 lbs cross.
