What happens if you string full bed multi at low tensions?

Let’s say at 51 lbs and below. I’ve always used multifilaments at the middle range of my rackets, typically 55 lbs. I like them the most at the end of their life, as they become a bit mushy but much more spinny. Anyone tried multis at low tensions? What are your impressions?
Note: I’m not adventurous enough to try it myself :D

I said exactly that to my stringer and he suggested I string 10% lower than I was....which was 45lbs in my Tour 90. I thought he was nuts, but I got that end of life feeling basically straight off the stringer. I think you should try it!

Wow, that’s really surprising! Thank you for your input!

So basically I can string my 97/98 rackets at around 50 lbs.

Work ok for a flat hitter or a volleyer (eg. net man in doubles.)

Of course, for a player with a modern big hitting style, the strings are going to break after a few games.
