    Yes . . .

    I usually go down 2 when I'm crossing gut with Synth Gut.

    I usually go down 6 when I cross gut with poly.

    I dont fool around with different tensions on x's and m's with gut in the mains (unless using poly). If you string them both the same, the tension drops more on the syn crosses than the gut mains anyway and some say frames have bigger sweetspots with a couple less in the x's..i string them both the same using Klip Legend Armourpro mains and Klip Excellerator x's.

    I drop the tension 3# with synthetic gut in the crosses. It's still a matter of personal preference, depending on how tight you want the stringbed to feel.
