Would anyone please suggest a good tension for the above poly mains and natural gut cross hybrid? I currently use ultra tour 17 ( a head poly) at 48 lbs mains and 46 crosses. This gives me decent power and control. I would like slightly more pop and more important - that "gut" feel. I am thinking of trying the hybrid at about 52M and 50C, but that is only intuition.

The electronics repairman in me says to use the same tension scheme (48M 46C) and just use gut on the crosses. (in other words only change one thing at a time).

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

52 by 50 sounds pretty good, although I personally would switch the strings. Put the gut in the mains. The PC is not a string breaker, and I think the primary benefit of the poly for you would be the stiffness, which would work as a cross or main.
