View Full Version : Higher or lower tension for the crosses?

08-25-2007, 09:32 AM
Yeah so I want to do 2 Hybrids first: Signum Pro Plasma Pure Mains with Tecnifibre X-tra Dynamic crosses and Babolat Pro Hurricane with Tecnifibre X-tra Dynamic crosses and I was wondering should I string the crosses higher or lower? What would be the benefits of stringing higher and what if I string low? I was thinking of stringing like this:

Mains: 25,5 kg (56 lbs)
Crosses: 27,5 kg (60,5 lbs) OR 26,5 kg (58 lbs)

I want durability, to be exact enhanced lifespan of the crosses but I don't want them to move too much... any help appreciated!

crosses lower should give more feel and a slightly bigger sweetspot. crosses higher gives more more and and more consistent stringbed
