Yonex Pro Poly Tour users, what tension do you use, what tension in a hybrid?

Currently using it at 63lbs main with a multi on the cross at 60lbs

Thinking 63lbs might be too tight

EDIT:

yptp 1.25 yellow

dunlop cx200+ 16x19
2015 blade 16x19
Prince rebel 95 18x20

I string mine in the mains at 57 and Dunlop silk spin in the crosses at 60 and I feel like it's perfect. I haven't actually strung higher than that but when I strung the same combo at 55/58, I felt that a lot of my balls were going a bit long

Why does no one list their string pattern and head size?

Such a hugely important variable to just omit

Also lol @63lbs

fyi just bouncing some ideas around but for those of you who hybrid with multi. I tried the multi cross at 10lbs higher than my poly mains and it feels much better this way but I don't have enough of a sample only 5 sets.

Even worse is omitting what machine/technique is used.

Are they using a constant pull? Drop weight? Lockout? If constant pull, are they waiting for the string to settle, or clamping and releasing once the machine beeps? If lockout, are they double-pulling?

Are they pre-stretching the poly? And if so, is it machine pre-stretch or 'classic' pre-stretch (meaning tie an end to a door handle, walk the string away from it, and lean back)?

There are soooo many differences from machine to machine and stringer to stringer. Posting tensions on a forum board is essentially useless, unless at a minimum some of the items I mention above are included.
