I┤m enjoying now to play with a low tension. 53 for mono 55 for multi. I prefer a lively string, just with enough tension to ensure control.
The stringing machine is a Babolat Star 5.
Would it help to dampen vibrations to use 3 leather pieces between the strings and the gromets (as seems Federer uses) instead of a normal vibration dampener?

I cant comment on your choice of poly, as I have never played with those. IMO pick the highest rated poly from your choices on the rating side of this site. Personally I refuse to use any lux poly as they charge wayyy too much.

Fed does use a reg dampener also. Unless you string very tights like sampras with thin gut in the mains then I would not bother with the leather pieces.

Federer has never used a regular dampener on tour, only the power pads all the way back to his Chinese Pro Staffs.

Smile Final analysis of this stringing

I can finally put my thoughts about using the federer racquet with an hybrid stringing, as I get used playing with it. I finally choosed a low tension range, 50 lbs on the main (16L natural gut), and 48 on the cross (1.23 tornado rough string made in Germany), put the string babolat savers as federer does, the leather power pads and a tourna grip,with a final weight of 365 grs. I add also 2 more grs with lead tape on the head tip. Using it with long and traditional strokes it really excells in every shot and place of the court, giving comfortability, pace, spin, control, everything I need. (The sticks really helps me to play better) I hope that these final analysis give some light on this matter.
