Those synthetic strings that move (ex. PSGD) usually stay straight for the first couple of sets. Then when they lose elasticity they start to move. This loss of elasticity is related to tension loss. When the string is less elastic, there is less tension, so there is definitely a relationship there. The playability goes down after that.
