The only reason I can think of right now is such a remote possibility it's barely worth mentioning: improperly tied knots.
That is so interesting you mention that, because I had the same thought after reading your other comments. I am a novice stringer and still struggle with knots, so that is a very real possibility. I will focus a bit more on knots next time and see if that makes a difference.

I posted on the other gut/poly thread to try to get Big Kahanu's take, but he recommends stringing after 12 hours or so anyway, so that made me think my observations were more normal with this set up. I have heard others call this racquet a "string eater," so maybe that is one of the manifestations. I am using a full bed of Yonex PTP 125 now and it plays even better, so would likely restring that stuff every 12 hours anyway. Guess I'll get lots of practice tying knots!
