Anyone any idea of what the manufacturers generally string their bats at?

I would assume that it would be mid-tension. i.e. on a 50-60lb racquet, it would be strung at 55lb.

i also believe it's mid tension...but technically, the strings would have lost tension over time from shipping and just chillin at a shop.

if you care about strings then i would think that you get your racquet restrung when you got it. imho. the only players racquet i ever saw factory strung were at sportsmart at they were the lm or inteligence radical os.

he could be talking about a replacement racket from the factory. they usually come strung w/ some basic synthetic gut.

The MP version of i.Radical is also pre-strung.

Yep. I got it right here, bought it pre-strung with Head Master 16L. I've never even heard of this string.

n Tour rec. 50-60 must come at about 64, no joke!

Generally at midpoint of the range.

But ...

How long ago was it strung (and lost tension and shipped in hot weather)?

Did the stringer set the tension correctly? I've seen some darn tight factory strung frames. Remember the stringer's pay at the factory may be very low.

I wonder if those factory stringers--the ones that get paid so little--pull two strings at a time to increase productivity?! :confused:
