To summarize, the primary suspects:

1. Tension loss on 2 center mains.

I do not pull 2 together. I pull one at a time. But the string goes over the frame, creating an angle and I wonder if...

Same boat here

I experienced the same thing. When I order a racquet strung at TennisWarehouse, the stringbed is very tight ( and dead feeling for a good while -- until it loosens a week later ).

Try Stringway. Their mounting is good - will not damage the racquet and distributes the load well. It can be disassembled. Not sure how convenient the one with floating clamps is. Try to get the one...

I wonder if you are mostly feeling the Gosen crosses? The mains just getting pushed out of the way, and Gosen takes up all the load-bearing onto itself? Gosen is very dead feeling all by itself --...

So far, I've experienced 2 things. Some polys, after some play, just harden up. Power drops, and the stringbed becomes boardy and unpleasant. Examples: Babolat RPM Blast, Babolat Pro Hurricane. It is...

Sure, it makes sense. Just take a racquet with the strings removed, dry-swing it, and compare to a racquet that's strung. It swings so much easier, and makes so much less noise.
