Play or tension?? They shouldn't be dangling/loose at all when standing still. It's common and alright to have a little sag on the leeward lowers in a strong upwind breeze but since my last tune I have no sag and the mast stays in perfect column which is key.

So my experience, no there shouldn't be play. But others might say otherwise.
