    Wanting to try Tough Gut for mains in a gut/poly hybrid. What's the equivalent tension for the same power level?

    I normally do Pac Classic on my frame at 53. If I were to try Tough Gut I'd probably do 50, give or take a pound.

    The power level will be determined mostly by the poly crosses. Just keep that about the same or 1lb higher.

    I would've said 51 lbs, but 50 is fair. To me, 1 lb does make a difference, but you adjust your poly crosses accordingly.
