Do you guys string your pog mid with lower tension to make it more powerful and have a larger sweetspot?
Does it take away alot of spin potential?

Personally I'd be worried about strining it low... the strings move around so much as it is, they wouldn't last long.

I currently have my POG's strung at 53/50 lbs. with Pacific Poly Force 17 (mains)/Pacific Tough Gut 17 (crosses). Having the poly in the mains, the strings do not move much. The above is a pretty sweet combo.

Hope this helps.

My POG Mid is strung with VS 17(M)/ALU Rough(X) at 26.0kg/24.5kg which estimates to 57lbs/54lbs.

I have PSGD @ 60 lb on my POG Mid and it moves a lot.
The string usually lasts for 10-15 h.

My strings usually lose too much tension and start moving insanely before they die on the POG. I ended up having to use ALU BB at 54 lbs. Unfortunately, this would make a relatively stiff racquet even more stiff. But it was the best serving racquet I have ever used to date. I tried ALU/PSG with ALU in the mains, but it still moved too much. I have since switched to the Diablo.
