    going to re-string my ps 6.0 85 with gosen og 16.

    what should i keep in mind, tension wise, knowing that i'll only be using it one in a while?

    only once in a while? tension would probably drop by the time you use it again, say after a month. I'd say to string it up 1-2 lbs higher, and make the most left and most right mains and the top and bottom crosses 5 lbs higher than you normally string it at. that would definetly be a good attempt to halt tension loss ( pre-stretching might help.) I'm using a full setup of gosen OG micro i strung only three days ago, and I'm already itching to cut it out tonight due to a trampoline effect.

    *edit* you'd have to bear with you un-accustomed tension for the first hitting session, then it should be good.
