In full bed I totally agree with you on VS versus VS BT7. Old VS was much better!

For Wilson and VS in gut/poly hybrid I generally string at 54 to 57 pounds for the gut mains and the poly crosses four pounds less. It depends on the frame. Tighter for my old Speed 300s, looser for my Dunlop 200s and PSGT. My default/middle ground is 55/51 and then I adjust from there for frame and weather.

The one exception was the PSLGT which is string as low as 49/45 with VS Team/CoFocus 18.
Only on Talk Tennis can you find people who believe
that 10 feet of lead tape has no effect on a frame...
