    I have the 16x18 with recommended tension 50-60 LBS. I am trying to get a little more control and would like to know how high I can push it. I have been recently stringing a hybrid at 62 / 63. Let me know where you have maxed out and if you noticed any frame damage.

    Yeah it was an accident. I was practicing stringing on my machine when I first got it and my machine wasn't calibrated yet.:oops: I actually played with it the other day. It hurt my fingers to move the strings back in place.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I started with Big Ace mains at 58 and it felt to powerful. I just finished a hitting session with it bumped up to 62 with Micro Sheep crosses at 65. It felt much better. I may give it a try at 63/66. Groundstrokes are very controlled and the ball comes off heavy. Really surprised how well it volleys. Only have an 1 1/2 hours on them so far. Should I expect any changes after the strings settle in?
