Shaped poly in crosses?


If I use shaped poly in mains, would a shaped poly in the crosses be problematic in terms of preventing string movement? This is with regards to an 18 x 20 pattern.
Yes. In general, 18x20 don't have much movement and having shaped strings has the string act like a hacksaw. I would go round poly cross, or just full shaped knowing the notching would happen relatively quickly

i believe you’re overthinking it...shaped poly cross might grind into the mains but then that leads to quicker notching which actually helps promote the string movement. Personally, I like round cross better because shaped poly tends to be slightly stiffer than round poly. There are plenty of slick shaped strings such as black code, xperience and others. Just use the string that provides the feel that you enjoy
