Anyway, I rarely, if ever string racquetball frames with poly. I simply refuse to do it, because poly puts so much stress on these frames, which are already so fragile, they sometimes eat thru the material and crack them.

Or, when players hit the ball, the poly is so stiff, it has no give, so the frame ends up bending and cracking before it should.

They also tend to really "burn" the richter tubes and break them fairly easily on e-force frames.

These frames are really not engineered for poly, which is why I've followed a policy to not string them with poly.
I totally agree with Drakulie on this. If one looks at the selection of racquetball strings available. None are Poly. Most of which are multifilments, syn gut or nylon.
