    do you tend to string tighter, or looser then you would with a multi syn?
    I switched 3 years ago, from wilson nxt tour to kirshbaum super spikey, now i use ashaway monofire and i go about 5 pountds tighter.

    Hi,

    It would be depend on the poly. Some manufactures tell you to string looser.. some state go up on tension. Example Gosen SP 17.

    Regards,
    Steve

    I go down with all of them, but the amount depends on the string. I never use full nylon set-ups, but I go down about 5 pounds from my hybrids to full polys.

    I used to play with Gosen OG Sheep Micro 16 g. Loved that stuff, but after doing all Cyberflash 17g on my LM Radical OS's I couldn't have been more happy. You lose some touch, but the tension retention is so much better. I've hit for about a week now with no string movement. I string the Cyberflash at the same tension as the OG Sheep and have had no problems.

    I have gone both ways depending on the poly. On Kirschbaum Competition I go down a few pounds. Cyberflash stays the same. Gosen SP is a few pounds higher. There is really a lot of variety out there in poly land these days.

    i went from nxt tour 16 strung at 62lbs to signum pro poly plasma 16L strung at 58lbs...i imagine i could go 60 next time, but for now 58 feels pretty good, i wont be going any lower than that...so i would say 5% lower if not real close to what you would normally string at...

    I string my full Cyberflash setup at 45lbs. I still have excellent control and it doesn't seem to increase power at all and spin is great. I would string PSGD at 62lbs to get about the same control.

    I dropped from 60lbs synthetic to 54 lbs w Luxilon Timo in a Hybrid setup, and like it a lot, until the string went pretty dead after about 10 sessions.

    I've got full ALU @ 54pds in my Fischer MSpeed. That's the magic tension that I use on this stick, no matter the compostition of the string.
