I've always done my hybrids where I string the mains a little tighter than the crosses to account for the extra length. However, I came across someone who suggested stringing the crosses tighter than the mains to achieve tension equilibrium. The claim for this practice was that the crosses lose tension while tensioning due to friction of the mains and therefore do not recieve the actual tension you give it. To some of you certified stringers out there, is this the case? thanks, L.
