View Full Version : Question for Kevo for 850 Pro Spin about Power and Tension

I currently have 850 Pro Spin at 57/54.

It's pretty sweet as it is.

If I were to lower it to lets say around 53/50 lbs:

How much more power would I get (or percieve) percentage wise?
And how much control would I sacrifice?

I found that I had good control with the Yonex 850 Pro at 50lbs. I just had to adjust a little and not swing quite as hard as normal. Lately I've strung it at 60/57 since I like to swing hard. :-) I think it mainly depends on how you like to play.

As far as additional power, it probably won't be too much. Maybe 5%. The 850 Spin isn't an overly powerful multi. Just keep in mind that when you string lower you get more power and less shock, so it will seem like less power and you'll be tempted to hit harder. Don't pay too much attention to the low shock value, just be aware of how deep the ball goes, and you'll do fine.

Thanks, Kevo.
