so i am finally going to TRY polyster strings. i was thinking hybrid MSV focus hex mains and NRG2 crosses.

i heard low tension (around 45) poly is nice, if you are coming from multifilaments, so i thought of doing that. BUT, i wouldnt want NRG2 around there, i'd want it about 55. so i am thinking, would that warp my racquet bad? is 45lb poly only good on a full job? What tension should the poly mains be what should the multifilament crosses be if i am going to hybrid like that coming from 55lbs full multi?

I would do 45/50 lbs just to be on the safe side. It takes a big difference in mains and crosses to warp a racquet, but I can't remember the rule of thumb... :-?

Keep the Mains and Crosses within 5lbs of each other.

if your concern is frame distortion than keep the difference between the to to 5lbs at most

Try it with 45# poly mains and 50# MF crosses. It's better to have the poly strung looser than tighter with a soft string because it's so much stiffer. In other words... you may not have good results with 50# poly mains and 45# MF crosses. That combo may slightly flatten the racquet head (i.e. make it more round).

A really easy frame to flatten is a PT 280/630.
