I'm going to buy another pack and string it @ 54 lbs to see if I can get a little more control out of it.
Either you're purposely exaggerating or it truly underscores how subjective these types of comparisons are. I've played with my fair share of polys/multis, and I've yet to come across a poly that's as comfortable as a multi. Right now I have Silverstring in one racquet at 43lbs, 4G in another at 41, and I'm in the process of comparing Gosen syn to Technifibre in my other two racquets. Even at those low tensions, the poly feels quite a bit stiffer than the synthetics. And you're saying BH7 (which I've hit with at 53lbs - just checked my records) feels as comfortable as a multi?

Course, if you're stringing polys in the high 40s/low 50s and your multis in the high 60s, it's a little easier to believe, but still a stretch in my opinion.
