Greetings from new comer to this board.
I'm thinking of restringing my Ti. radical MPs with technifibre polyspin and Gosen OG sheep 16.
I've been playing with Babolat Strongplay for more than 3 months and the playability of the string is gone, I think.
It moves too much and I had to adjust it all the time.
I believe such a string movement does affect my play, at least psychological aspect.
What tension do you think is good for racquet and me?
I usually string them at 60 lbs.
As you know, technifibre polyspin is monofilament like babolat strongplay and that means more initial tension loss.

Go with Poly Strings like Lux, Kirschbaum or even the new polys from Unique if you desire non - movement in your string bed. Take note though, that You will have to experiment with the tension at first, I'd recommend you trying 5 - 8% lower than your usual tension, which'd be abt btw 55 - 58%. If it's giving you arm problems, try lowering another 3 - 5% again. Good luck!
