Generally, I think the consensus would be not to string your poly crosses above 48 lbs. Over that number, the poly can become overstretched and actually lose control and spin. There are a number of articles on this and is supported by many in the string industry (G&G for one).

Beyond this, this set-up sounds like murder on your arm.
