    Question: What tension would keep 17g OG micro natural from moving in a LM MP.

    I am a 4.0 player that likes to hit with topspin. I tried biphase at 56 lbs and that wasn't close to holding the strings in place. I guess these are the only reference points I have. I don't wanna try using a poly yet and I like the economical price of micro.

    Thanks for all input

    I found that this string is more prone to movement than some others. However I have found that raising the tension on the crosses to be about 2-3 lb. higher than the mains does help quite a bit. However even this at lower tensions won't eliminate it. If you were to go to about 59 mains and 62 crosses the movement isn't too bad but really I find that Babolat Addiction is much less prone to movement and for me is an all around better string, just more expensive.

    I have Poly mains, and Gosen OG Micro on crosses. My mains hardly move. I agree with Blade, higher tension on the cross than the mains.

    There are a lot of Polys out right now that are half the price of Lux. Volkl Cyclone (what I'm using now) is about $6-8, Topspin Cyber Flash is about $8-10. Use half a set for mains and OG Micro for crosses and you are good to go. Do your self a favor and buy a reel of OG Micro ($30), it comes out to like $1.78 a set. Instead of $3 to 4 for individually packaged sets.
