    I have one set of Cyclone 1.20 and one set of Cyber Flash 1.20 on hand. For cross strings, what I have is Gosen Sheep Super 1.25, Multifeel 1.30, and Revelation 1.27. I also have 1/2 set of Legend NG 1.30, but that won't help me figure out what to use long-term.

    Which of these crosses will hold up best with these polys? Would I want to use higher or lower tension for one cross compared to the others? I'm especially interested in the case of Multifeel being a PU multi.

    Thanks for your advice.

    The Multifeel would probably last as long as the other 2. I'd give that one a try. The Gosen might last a little longer, but probably not. With the Multifeel, I'd string it 3-5# tighter than the poly.

    I don't know what would be the most durable cross string that is a multifilament, it might be something along the lines of Gamma tnt, asterisk, live wire, sensation, or nrg which are close to synthetic gut.

    My suggestion would be psg. It does the job of softening poly and is very durable.
