Default Tension advice

Hi, Im looking for advice on how and what tension i should string my Prostaff 90

I recently bought half sets of Luxilon ALU power and Technifibre X-One Biphase, i'm thinking of putting the poly in the mains and the multi in the crosses.

Im also wondering what tension i should have it strung. I've heard using lower tensions such as 48/50 could work but i'm not sure. I've tried a full bed of Biphase and broke those within a couple of months

Any suggestions?

How many Hours of play are you looking for?
You did not give the tension of the multi so I'll just give you the general guide line, have the frame strung 10% lee than you last set up with the Lux in the mains. That is a starting point. If you start to develop arm pain , it is time to get a fresh set of string in your racket.

Default As thin a poly as you can find

During the wood racket era playing for a season on a string job wasn't unusual for certain players, nor did it tend to lead to tennis elbow.
That said I would recommend the following
Stick to poly mains low tension. Do not ignore any arm soreness. If you are getting 30 playing hours off of a string bed, you are playing with strings that are very "dead".
