    So I use a Volkl x325 racket with Cyclone string......i have for a long time stringed the racket with the mains at 53 and the crosses at 50.... i had read some time ago to string the crosses looser because the shorter distance makes the strings tighter........i really do enjoy the way it feels but it takes a set or two for the strings to settle down to where i really enjoy the feel.....so who out there has the knowledge to tell me what part of the string bed is settling in to make it feel better after playing for a while....i have recently decided to string it straight up at 53 m/c and it feels great at first but over time something changes and i especially notice it on my serve, which is a big part of my game.....cheers.

    You probably like the poly at a lower tension. When you first string up a string it will always drop tension within a day or two and then settle and slowly, but surely, loses more tension over time.

    On your next set of full bed of poly string them in the low 40's.

    Used to do that with the pb10 mid, i was stringing it as low as the mid 30's....loved it but over time i was feeling that the string was getting too loose before i was getting what i considered a full couple of weeks out of a set.

    It sounds like you're pretty sensitive to the changes in poly. Unless you have the means to restring often you might want to consider a hybrid or go to a full bed of a different type all together.
