    ^^ Try a full set of CF @ 55 lbs. Best stuff for me as of right now, but it only lasted me 12 hours or so. Now, I'm looking for something a little more durable.

    PSGD is a stiff syngut and CF is now known as a stiffer poly. I cross CF with Forten Sweet and it softens up the string bed nicely.

    12 hours? Was it 12 hours before it snapped, or 12 hours before you restrung them again because you thought it was dead?

    I've gone to Natural in the mains & CF 17L in the cross. Very nice combination of power, feel & spin, although I am coming from a Kevlar/Natural gut combo, so I guess anything would give me more feel...

    I use the CF at 55 tension in the mains of my PST, but it's not stiff since the PST is only a 63 flex rating. The PDR is a 71 and I never liked the stiffer polys in there. Drop your tension down around 2 pounds on the mains and crosses and it should help out a bit.

    I always found that the PDR worked better for me with softer polys like Big ace. You still get the nice poly control but it's much easier on the arm. I ended up switching from the PDR for that very reason, but that's a sweet stick.

    Don't feel bad, the first time I used CF at similar tensions to yours, I hated it ;) CF also takes a little time to break in and usually after 2 hours, it's really nice and it holds its characteristics for a really long time.

    Try using it with PSGM as a cross. Has a very "solid" feel to me. It's my string combo of choice.
