Thanks in advance.
In their case the cross is strung higher because they are using a poly main which should be strung approx. 10% looser than you would normally string a syn gut or multi. Their hybrid uses the syn gut in the cross so they strung that a little tighter.

With a natty gut main and a poly cross you can string with an even greater delta of higher tension mains to tame the natty gut and to soften a stiff poly string cross.

For full bed of poly I string the cross string about 2 or 3 lbs. looser and find I appreciate the feel of that string bed more than one tension for both.

I am hybriding poly and syn gut currently in my C10 Pro and stringing the crosses 4 lbs. tighter than the mains.
