Re: string tension

your question is very vague, tension should reflect the racquet you use,the string you use, the stlye of game you play, the surface and even the temperature (depending on how nitty gritty you wanna get)

but i use a flexpoint radical tour MP
serve & volley on grass/hard
strung at 63 with head ultra tour in the mains and at 62 with pps 17 in the cross

Re: string tension

Personally I use 58lbs on my rackets but will have a spare racket strung at
60lbs if I`m finding I`m having a bad day and need more control.

Each to there own.....just as long as your tension is within the rackets
manufacturers guide on the racket then no problem.

Re: string tension

I'm don't string my rackets too often as I'm only a recreational player, but the last times I strung them at 29/28kg (would be 62 to 64 pounds) which I found to be good after trying a few different tensions with my racket.

Re: string tension

head liquidmetal prestige midplus
string with nxt tour strings 16L at 54 lbs (average is 50 to 60). thinking of going up for better control on volleys though going up will improve power on my ground strokes.

Re: string tension

27 or 28, depends on the string

kilos, but because lbs are smaller most people will measure in that for further accuracy
