I currently use full MSV Focus hex 1.18 and I love the performance I get out of it when it's strung at 58. Not looking to change the tension up anytime soon. Would changing the cross string to gosen og sheep 17 relieve some of my elbow pain? I would maybe go something along the lines of 58/60 to keep a similar performance.

I used to use full poly at 56. Got TE. Used full syn gut at 56lbs and hated it. Full multi at 56 and hated it. Tried poly/syn gut at 50/50 and didn't like it, too much power but no arm pain.

Went for poly/syn at 50/56 and liked it but wanted it a bit softer. So now I use a poly/multi at 50/56 and love it. NO TE PROBLEMS.

Can't argue with that.

I literally broke string in four different racquet's with-in a thirty minute period this week, I think i'll try the multi in the cross.
