Hello,

I have just recently bought this racquet and I was wondering what other blade users have their string tension at. Previously I've played with a Yonex RDIS 100 MP, which I had at 26.5 kilos (a little over 58 lbs). So what do you guys prefer?

full poly at 58 lbs
Some luxilon could be great IMO.

Depends on the string.

Ok. Is "Big Banger" or what's it called now again any good? From what I understand most pros us it, but maybe it's not so important what model it is.

Depends on the string.

Well, either the one mentioned above or a babolat string, can't remember the name.

My gf just got this racket and I string hers with full OGSM 17 @ 64. She loves it.

It's a bit higher than the recommended range, but I just started doing my own stringing and saw a thread about how OGSM looses about 8lbs of tension quickly and then settles. After testing it, it's spot on- so it ends up being 56lbs after an hour or two of hitting.

lux alu power rough 27kg works good

Lexicon M2 Pro & Alu Power @ 54/52 is my favourite setup. Recently V Pro 18 @ 56/54 has played extremely solidly. Going to put timo in soon

I would try a softer co-poly at a lower tension as a starting point. I was using these rackets full time for a few months and I settled on Luxilon Alu Rough at 50lbs pre stretched. If you hit flatter try it a little higher in tension around 53. They are great rackets I hope your enjoying them.
