    I've only used Luxilon and Signum polys before and I've found a tension that I'm comfortable with after the 10 per cent recommended reduction in tension.
    I've just ordered a set of Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour. Is it alright if I string it at the same tension as my Big Bangers?
    I haven't received the PHT yet but I don't think the package suggests a reduction in tension.
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    I don't think it suggests a 10% reduction BUT with ANY string change, there is a possible tension change. So, it is not likely that you will nail down the tension on the first try anyway. If it were me, I'd start at a tension reduction of 5%. But I wouldn't know, you wouldn't know, if you liked it until you tried it.

    You could prob add 2-3lbs to the tension you use for big banger with the PHT. But to get a true comparison you should string it at the same tension.

    I would string it up with the same tension, just to compare...then go from there.
