Well, poly at low tensions definitely doesn't have that "multifilament" feel (as you suggested using for this frame), but it's good. I have some natural gut that I want to try as well, but because the Tour Bite is working so well, I might not get around to that for a while.

Anyway, I haven't used it long enough to judge the tension loss, but I've had it strung for about 3-4 days and have played over an hour of hard hitting and it hasn't dropped more than 2-3 lb. so far. I've read good things from other reviews about Tour Bite holding tension well.

I'll find out later this week when I get the chance to play more with it.

As a side note, I tried stringing Tourna Big Hitter Blue in this frame at 35 lb. and I hated it. Very muted, felt stiff and plasticky. It did loosen up a bit, and I played great with it, but I never liked the feel. Tour Bite is a different animal altogether. It felt great right away and had more power and softness than the Big Hitter Blue. Much more spin, too.
