Tecnifibre NRG2 tension for 360 Prestige pro

Hello I just got a prestige pro and found it to be very low power and very low trajectory which is odd coming from the 360 mp I’m just trying this one out because I’ve heard great things about it’s stability and accuracy. Anyways I’m about to string NRG2 on it and wanted to see if I can get some help on tension recommendations. I’m going with a full set and with my MP I’m around 45lbs because I feel like my sweet spot is usually just under mid tension (feel) so I like to feel like the tension is almost to the middle but just a notch looser for power and comfort. I strung a synth gut on the pro just to test out at 45lbs and to my surprise it feels stiff/tight. I’m not sure if it’s the string I usually play with a co poly. Anyways, I’m about to string with NRG2 and cannot decide on what tension to go with.

I actually thought the syn gut felt too tight at 45, so possibly 40 would’ve felt better for me. Maybe you would say 45 on nrg2 in that case?

NRG2 multifilament is much more powerful than OGSM syn gut at the same tension. I have played both. Also NRG2 loses tension way faster. Even at 50 it would have more power to begin with than Syngut at 45 (my opinion) but it's going to drop tension after than as well so will give more power as it ages a little. My vote is for 50 (maybe 48 if you insist) if gauge is same as OGSM (syn gut).

Also I contend that Syngut feels stiff without actually being stiffer due to it dead/solid feel.
 
If Syngut was 45, then do at least 50 on NRG2. It will lose initial tension really fast (at least compared to OGSM which is my go to Syngut NRG2 loses that intial tension way faster)
Yup... That's why I said go higher if you feel like

Consider pre stretching as option for tension loss
