    I want to test out a full set of Luxilon BB Alu Power, but the last time I tried out a full bed of poly, it was way too stiff and hurt my elbow. Would it feel softer if the crosses were strung a few lbs looser than mains, or the other way round? :confused:

    Yes, but it'd be better just to drop the entire tension altogether.

    When using Alu Power, strung 40/42 my arm does not complain.
