    would you recommend stringing an 85 sq.in racket with poly????
    what tension????
    i mean....a racket such as ps6.0....
    o should i try a soft syn.gut or maybe hybrid????
    how much should i lower the tension????
    i'm used to use a 95 sq.in at 54 lbs....

    Full poly? Hummm, I'd say it's possible, but tension would have to be very low... Low 40s, imo...

    Don't make the mistake I did, go real low or you will not be happy, I put gut at 55 and it was still way too tight, even after adding in 1oz of lead lol

    I don't really see the fit; the typical 85 sq in frame isn't so uncontrollably powerful that you'd need poly to tone it down, but I suppose the Rip-ster is right in terms of tension in the 40's. I'd try a hybrid set-up before a full boatload of poly and expect the unexpected!

    I strung my PS 6.0 85 with SPPP 1,23 at 53/55 and it played very well :)
