Typically use a Luxilon BB ALU Power / Yonex Tour Super 850 hybrid in a Head LM Radical MP and string it at 56/56.

Put a hybrid of Luxilon BB Ace 18g / Yonex Tour Super 850 hybrid in it to attempt to get some more bite on the ball.

I strung it at the same tension and it feels as hard as a board.

What is the typical 'need to drop tension' pounds when going from BB ALU Power to the Ace?

Depends on what you're stringing it at already. I'd say maybe try dropping the mains 4-6 pounds and keeping the crosses the same. When my players describe a string/tension combination as board I usually have to make a pretty drastic drop like that. When they say they just want it a little looser I do a 2-3 pound drop. One pound is not as dramatic of a difference as most people on these boards seem to think it is.

Thanks for the input...stringing both mains and crosses at 56 pounds right now.
