Just bought a Diablo and want to try some different combinations of strings and tensions.

Any advise/experience will be appreciated.

Thanks

I use the mid+ version and have it strung with natural gut mains @ 60lbs, ALU rough crosses @ 56lbs and really like it much more than the Forten Thin Blend that is in my other Diablo mid+. Also tried 17ga Prince Syn, which felt just ok. Also tried Forten Arimid Gear (I think that is the correct name) which also felt decent but a little boardy. I usually string at max tension, but I don't think it will work in this racquet.
Also, I am going to cut out the Thin Blend and try ALU Rough mains, and Natural gut crosses, but I hope to find something a little cheaper.

I have tried 3 types in it.

Prince Syth gut @ 58
Prince Premiere @ 62
Prince perfection control @63

If you need power the soft Premier has gobs of it, too much for me.
The stock gut strings were actually pretty decent.
Perfections give more spin and control.

Still looking for the best string. I'm going to string to 66 next time to cut down on power and help control Lead tape helped serves. 15g at 3-9. 6 in handle.
