I plan to try out soon Babolat's Pro Hurricane Tour with VS Natural Gut hybrid. I plan to use the poly in the mains with the natural gut in the crosses. I have read that you can use different tensions for each string (i.e., string the poly looser than the gut crosses). What is the recommended maximum difference you can go?

I would say 10% difference.

why would you change the tension on poly? they work the same with same tension right?

Most I've ever gone is 5 lbs, but most i've ever seen is 15 lbs.
