Poly mains/gut cross will have slightly more control than gut mains/poly cross. I played the Wilson BLX 6.1 95 in 16x18 string pattern. I felt like it needed poly mains to temper the liveliness of the stringbed. So, I used poly mains with a soft cross string to tone it down a bit. I think this is the "typical" reason that you would go poly/gut instead of gut/poly.
