    Been playing poly/syn gut at 48-52 on the poly and 54 on the cross. Trying to leave poly for comfort issues. I strung a couple full syn gut at 50 and they actually feel fine too. So if i like 48/54 poly/syn and 50 full bed of syn gut where should I start with a multi main/syn gut cross tension? (I love forten as a cross and don't want to spend $15 per string job on full multi).

    I'm thinking 56/54?

    By the way, the multis I have are NRG2 17, Multifeel 16, and PPA 17. Going for comfort and controllable power.

    I'm not sure what type of machine you will be using, but I would not start below 56 with a multifilament due to their higher power level.

    None of those are rocket launcher strings, so I would try 55/55 actually. If that's too much power, bump it up a few lbs. However, mikeler is God of Multi, so I will defer to his experience. :)

    Let's say 55.5 to be safe. PVAudio is no string slouch himself. :wink:

    Klippermate special. So 56 with 54 forten cross is probably fine for starters?

    Without knowing anymore info about your game, I'd say yes.
