    Will reducing the tension on the crosses (ALU) get rid of the elbow pain? I didn't experience this before with other strings I used.

    It's strung at 56/53. Previously I was using the same mains (babolat) with Babolat Pro Hurricane strings in the crosses, both strung at 56.

    Should I also lower the string tension of the mains?

    53/50 +-1?

    Thanks.

    Oh yes, I use the K61 90.

    Still bothering me, but not as much.

    Yes, you need to lower tension or switch strings, ALU is harsh.

    Should I keep the gut where it is? How much should I lower the ALU? 51? 49? 46 even?
