    I just bought a lot of eq. from TW.

    Ex. Hurricane 17g. Here are the tension rec. :

    16 g :30 kg/66 lbs
    .
    .
    .
    15L : 36 Kg/76 lbs

    Mon Dieu : the rec. for the thickest will be a tough one ???

    Is this not a little misleading ??

    I would NEVER choose 36 kg for a poly. Even in my 14x18 POG MP.

    And why is it better with higher tensions for thicker strings ? I mean, the thinner, the stretchier.

    This is just max specs for the string. It's up to you to decide your required tension. I'd string your POG MP with around 58 lbs. I've had it on my APD around 60lb and it was pretty nice. Then it lost a bit of tension and became too bouncy :). POG should be OK at 58 lb.

    Yeah about 60 is right. I believe mine are 57 or 58.
