Is there more spin?

The most surprising result most people encounter at low tension is the loss of power. To me, it felt like the soft stringbed absorbed all the power so the ball is not compressed much. The trampoline I had expected with synthetic gut at 30lbs did not happen at all.

For the hybrid you did, I would think the very low "stretchability" of the poly could have dampened the power even more. At least synthetic gut would stretch and rebound.

Would you consider trying full synthetic gut at 30lbs?
