The single best highly scientific explanation as to why polys go dead, trampoline, lose control!

The article is rather long and highly detailed. Alot of scientific experimentation here. In summary, the high "perpendicular" stiffness of polys create the effect of a higher deflection angle and increased dwell time.

Also, the crosses slides more in a poly setup, rather than notch as they do in multis and nylon setups. This creating more sliding friction which prevents the string from snapping back. So there is a perceived loss of power and mushiness.
