String/tension suggestions for Babolat PO7 18x20 Pure Strike

I switched back to the Babolat Project One7 18x20 for the last couple weeks. Was using Yonex Dr 98+ for several months but the swing weight from the extended length ended up being a bit too much over time. Have been using a full bed of 17g multifeel in the Babolat, and was using hybrid package vs touch/rpm blast in the Yonex. Thinking about switching to the hybrid combo in the PS also, needing some more spin.

Wanted to get some suggestions from others on tension and any other string recommendations for this frame. I generally prefer a tighter tension, for example the full bed multifeel in the PS I have at 57-58. Thanks in advance!

Do you strings the poly in the mains or in the crosses?

Was doing poly in the crosses and the gut in the mains. In the Yonex dr 98+ I was doing 60/57, but it was a more open pattern compared to the PS 18x20. The full bed of 17g multifeel I’m doing around 58-59 now in the PS. It’s a bit tight the first 1-2 hours but then it feels pretty nice. Just doesn’t last as long and spin isn’t as good as I’d like.

Not sure how much lower I should go with the smaller string pattern and the fact the gut is 16g, and adding poly into the equation.
 
Personally i would try stringing the hybrid at 55 as it’s gonna make it a lot more soft and comfortable but give you power and spin if you can dial in your shots
