    I have been using msv focus hex 1.1 at 50lbs and recently restrung using a full bed of basic gamma syn gut 15l at 58. It felt like there was much less pop to my shots and my ques is this going to be the case with any non poly? I strung it higher mainly because it was syn vs poly.

    Should be the opposite effect, more pop and less spin. However, you probably upped the tension too much (I would've gone 5 lbs at the most) and you're trying to compare a 17L/18 g co-poly to a 15L syn gut, two completely different strings.

    Some synthetics to me have a less powerful, deader feel than some polys.

    I agree with this. Pro Red Code is far livelier than TF Syn Gut.
