tension help
I typically string original prince syngut in my wilson blade 98 at 55lbs. I am about to try a hybrid with prince syngut in the crosses and babolat blast rpm in the mains. Can anyone suggest a good tension for these strings that I may like based on what I was stringing the syn gut at?

If you like 55 lbs with syn gut, then a full bed of poly around 45 lbs will feel very similar (similar control, power, stiffness). So I'd go 45 lbs mains and 47lbs crosses. You don't want to string syn gut too low.

I prefer to start at or below the min rec tension for the mains and 4# higher for the crosses.
So... 50/54 or 48/52 and adjust from there.

IMO, poly should be lower at least 10%.

^^^ I would agree with that for fullbed poly vs. fullbed nylon, but I think that more than 4# differential in a hybrid is risking frame distortion.
Some would even say to split the difference and string both the same. 52/52
