Generally, I would agree with that. The cross strings only account for about 15-20% of the overall stringbed performance and feel, IMO. In fact, sometimes the feel of a fairly dead poly (like the MSV I use) and a fraying gut string in the mains the last 10-15 hours can be pretty good. I usually restring after about 30-35 hours regardless - even if the gut has not broken.
