I wasn't sure if this combination would work very well. It was a bit hard to figure out how to get a start in this Sudoku, without giving away too many givens. The construction was a bit troublesome as I ran into situations without a solution far too often. The problem was that a lot of areas wouldn't resolve themselves early in the solve and by the time they did, there would be a contradiction with clues I had laid out in the meantime. In the end, I think the puzzle worked out nicely.
Rules of Sudoku
In this Sudoku a grey line is either a Palindrome Sudoku or a Rising Sudoku clue. In a Palindrome Sudoku clue the digits along the grey line form a Palindromic sequence; the sequence can be read the same from either end. In a Rising Sudoku clue, the digits form a rising sequence from one end to the other. This sequence does not have to be an arithmetic sequence. Different grey lines can conform to different rules.
