View Full Version : Adjusting Tension in Hybrid Setup

12-19-2006, 09:11 AM
I'm using Klip X-plosive (Gut mains@61/Poly crosses@58 ) in my PK Ki5. I'm very happy with the feel, but I'd like to take a little bit of power off it as my forehand often goes about a foot long.

Should I increase tension in the mains, crosses or both?

It won't really make much of a difference for power, but if anything, increase the tension in the crosses. It will give you a slightly lower ball trajectory.

how does it do that??!!

I found it interesting is a recent article re stringing at Wimby, that none of the pros increased the tension on the crosses and the ones that used a different tension on the crosses actually lowered it a bit. I'm going to give that a try next.

Generally speaking, tighter stingbed would produce slightly less length on you shot.
