    I plan to try out soon Babolat's Pro Hurricane Tour with VS Natural Gut hybrid. I plan to use the poly in the mains with the natural gut in the crosses. I have read that you can use different tensions for each string (i.e., string the poly looser than the gut crosses). What is the recommended maximum difference you can go?
