Is a 4lbs difference too much in a poly/ multi?

Hi guys.

Is 52/56 lbs too much of a differential in a poly/ multi hybrid.

52 1.3 RPM. 56 1.3 Sensation.

Any help appreciated.

Not going to do any damage to the frame. The mains may not move and snap as much as you want so the spin potential may be lower. But, if the multi drops tension fast after stringing this may be moot.

No harm in trying it out, then adjust from there.

I would say the tensions for this Hybrid should be equalized. The tighter you go on the crosses the more you inhibit mains sliding and snap back. Already using a multi on the cross inhibits this action to a certain extent.

This will not damage the frame, which is what? What would concern me is the tension loss percentages between the 2 strings. RPM Blast 1.30 bags out at 45% tension loss. Sensation 1.30 bags out at 21-25% tension loss. When the RPM tension drops significantly below the cross, it will tend to stick. To prevent this, you may need a slicker cross unless you plan to cut the strings out before 8 hours. The other option is to use a thicker cross to prevent the mains from moving so much, but that may sacrifice spin.

When using lower tension like 44/48 and 48/52 it worked well in the RF97 with poly/syn gut. Tourbite 1.25/ Gosen Micro 1.30. The PS97 worked well at the same tension 54/54.
