    Hello there TT,

    Been a long time since I've posted, but i was wondering if I should follow the 10% rule for the new luxilon adrenaline. I've never done the 10% rule but i'm figuring it could benefit me. Currently, I string at 58 lbs, so with the 10% rule I would be stringing at 52, which kind of frightens me because I want to remain consistent.

    Thanks for the help!

    I wouldn't use the 10% rule with Adrenaline. I used the 10% rule when I started playing with Alu Power Rough (and then reduced the tension even more). I finally settled in with Rough at 57 - the perfect tension for me. So... I tested Adrenaline at 57, and it was too powerful and lacked control.

    If I were you, I'd try Adrenaline at your normal tension.

    For the record, I did not care for Adrenaline. I'll gladly pay the extra for Alu Power Rough - the best string I've ever used.

    Take care.
