Does this mean I need a deader poly?

Strung my RF97 with ALU power cross @52 and X1 mains @54.
So I had string issues where the stringbed felt like a cannon initially. Then the next hitting session, and multiple onwards, felt really dead and unpredictable. Couldn’t get a full confident swing in. Now ~12 hours of playtime in, its right at the sweet spot. Feels perfect. I’m assuming both strings have dropped tension a bit. Dont have any such equipment to find out how much. Mid 40s perhaps? I’m assuming the poly has also gone dead now. So perhaps my next string job I should go for a deader poly like 4G and string low to mid 40s? What do you think? Also thinking of switching out the X1 for Prince synthetic gut.

Was the temperature the same on all three days?

So I’ve since switched X1 for sensation and strung at 48/46 with ALU power on the crosses. Feedback, it feels much more akin to how the X1 hybrid felt after about 10 hours of playtime. But spin has really been affected. Having to adjust strings after every rally after only 1 hour playtime. And I am unsure about durability as well. Really considering going for a low tension poly setup next time.
