Not alot. As I said above, my normal tension is 53/57 on the mains/crosses, and here in Florida, some days the wind can kick up over 20-25 mph. When that happens, I'll play with a racquet strung at 56/59. So a little more than 2 pounds tighter. It's noticeable, with the poly mains and gut crosses, but only because I've been playing them awhile. I'm not sure I would have been able to tell when I first started playing these strings.
