I think some textured strings actually have very good COEF. Federer uses a textured cross with gut mains and he get tremendous spin.
I have used textured crosses with gut, multi, or syn gut mains and spin is good.
Some polys do turn into rocket launchers when they lose tension. Luxilon is bad. SigPro and Tecnifibre polys seem to hold tension better. They do go "flat" after about 10 hours but they don't turn into trampolines. I play with them for about 6-8 hours and then relegate them to practice after that.
