So far best performance is coming from full poly on this stick and I have several sets of VS lying around (and no, you can't have it).
Because of my chronic TE/GE, I tried natural gut at 42 lbs mains. Multi crosses are 4 lbs lower.
I am now at 52 lbs NG mains with multi crosses 4 lbs lower.
My racket is wilson kfive and wilson khamsin 5 (both 108 sqi headsize).
I am 3.5 level and playability is Ok.
I also tried NG Mains/poly crosses (50/40).
Playability is very good, but
my elbow complains so I cut the poly out and replaced with multis.
If I try poly again as a cross I will string it at 35 lbs instead of 40lbs.
