    I just got the Babolat Revenge string to replace my beast XP which I felt was overpowered. What tension should I string it at to get a balance of power and control. I use the Babolat Pure Drive GT and play baseline most of the time. And btw how does it play??:confused:

    I have the same question and was about to make my own thread. But i have a feeling that it will play similar to beast.

    I heard that the revenge is a stiff control oriented poly while beast has good power for a poly.

    I guess we will have to see what other people say about it. BTW how do you like Beast? It is one of my favorite polys.

    I really like the revenge but never try the beast, is really control oriented but once it get loosen up because when is freshly strung on the racquet is pretty stiff and hollow feeling almost is like a board, depends on the racquet the tension manteinance in my dunlop bio 300 tour not much but in the prestige s is a collosal lost of tension in like 2 hours of play (maybe the open pattern) and the durability is really high for most of polys hope it helps

    Great feel, god power without sacrificing control, good tension stability. Only drawback is it's average spin potential. Whenever I brush the ball I don't get the results that I expect, but perfect on flat shots. Sometimes I get good spin depending on my stroke.
