before i started stringing poly lower, i tried it in the POG OS 4 stripe and thought the stick felt really dead and assumed it wasn't a good match because the stick wasn't made for poly. fast forward a bit, i've dropped my tensions for poly and i found that poly in the low 50s for the POG OS plays amazingly well. in fact poly (discho iontec black 1.25) in the low 50s has none of the brassy feel that syn gut @ 58#s has.

i can't go any lower than low 50s otherwise control is compromised.
