How about reversing the poly/syn gut to syn gut/poly or multi/poly?
I recall trying the pro supex big ace 1.25 in mains with multi cross vs multi mains with big ace cross. The difference in stringbed softness is huge.
The surprising thing I noticed was the control and spin levels did not drop much with multi mains. It was so comfortable that it almost felt like a fullbed of multis to me, without the mushiness.
Between using multi or syn gut cross with poly mains, I felt multi generally have much better vibration dampening, especially with a stiff poly mains. Softness seems about the same.
