If I string a wilson k 6.1 95 at 60 lbs, what tension should I string a Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT at?

I need to know ASAP.. I just want to know because the string pattern is different so would it be the same tension?

SAME TENSION?!?! String pattern does not matter too much.

Headsize and other stuff are also different....so its still the same?

You are not talking about a big difference in racquet specs, both are on the heavy side, both have open string patterns....The only real difference is the k 61 is a little bit stiffer, but it also weights a tad bit more, so the power/weight difference between the two probably wont make a big difference. In my opinion, I would string it with the same tension you are using now, 60.

I just realized I did overlook the difference in string patterns, the one is a 16x18 (if that is the k 6 1 you have), and the other is a 16/20. They are both pen string patterns, the 16/20 is just a little bit denser, but nevertheless, still an open string pattern as the k 61 is.
