    I've used NXT, NXT Max, and Multifeel, but never a non-PU multi.

    NXT was too crisp and powerful
    NXT Max was very nice, but too expensive
    Multifeel is very good, and it has been my choice for a while now

    I've been trying polys out of curiosity. The firmness has led me to believe that I either need to up my tension on my Multifeel 16 (59 on AG200), or switch to a firmer one. I'm wondering which string is a typical inexpensive non-PU multi? I'm thinking of either Alpha Gut 2000 or Gamma Revelation.

    What would you recommend, and how much higher should I string it to account for the initial tension loss?
