A softer and more slippery copoly cross would definitely be better, but unless you never break strings you'll probably find that syngut mains notch very quickly and break soon after. Of course, if you never break strings you're not going to benefit from copolys or copoly hybrids anyway because you're not bending the strings enough to get snapback.
