    Anyone knows what he used @ the AO? Mostly interested in his tension (in pounds). Thanks.

    I believe it is:

    Luxilon Alu Power Mains @ 26kg . 57lbs
    VS Team Gut @ 26kg . 57 lbs

    Thanks. I cant believe he strings so low and is able to hit that big. Im sure it helps to be 6'6" and pretty much just hit down on the ball.

    Trust me, 57lbs in an 18x20 90sq.in. RDX500mid is *tight* if you factor in the headside and stringing pattern. At this tension, most of us would barely get the ball over the net.

    For myself, I string the stock RDXmid at 52lbs, and this is more than adequate for power and control.
