With 1-piece is it possible to string mains and crosses at different tensions or will they affect each other. If I strung the crosses higher say will tensioning the first cross carry back onto the last main?

I can't see how the tension would not carry back (even out) to the mains over time. But if you string the crosses higher or lower that are going to deflect the mains more or less when you run the crosses and pull tension. I think the mains and crosses will even themselves out as soon as you tension them. If you want to pull higher tension on the crosses why not just split the difference and string the mains and crosses a little tighter.
