First thing I would try is to put the spring calibrator on it, dial it down to 30lbs and find out if it locks out in the neighborhood of 30lbs. Then proceed to a higher tension and try again.

I went with 16g N.Vy crosses with the 17g BHSR. At first I was not getting snap back and having to adjust the mains, but that problem went away after a few games. So far I like it as it softens up...

Smooth Syn Gut for Cross

My usual setup is Tourna Big Hitter Silver Rough mains with Big Hitter Silver crosses, both in 17g. The BHS crosses are very smooth and enable great snapback for the BHSR mains.

Babolat PHT with Head RIP Control
