    I currently get my racquets strung with poly mains and syn crosses with the same tension(52lbs) and guage(17). I want to keep my mains at 17guage and 52lbs, but would changing tension and guage on my crosses provide any benefit to ocmfort and playability?

    Totally! I find by dropping the cross 3 pounds I get more of a pocket or I should say I can manipulate the ball more.

    Agree, also there's no rule on this. I've used as much as an 8 lb difference.
