how low do you string polys in comparison to synthetics? some say 5% and some say 10%. specifically gamma zo true 18 in a prostaff 6.0 95 (middle tension is 60)

try something around 54 or 55 and go up or down a pound depending on your initial experience

I went down 4 pounds when moving to poly,but still experimenting on the strings.I guess it could still change depending on the final string selection

Luxilon, Signum Pro, and others recommend 10%. I think they know what they're talking about and I agree with them.

Go 10%... For most people that works out to 5 or 6 lbs lower.
