    Hi all, I was just wandering whether it is the same, regarding feeling and power, to string a frame with lets say 56/56 lbs or 57/55 lbs, or whatever logic value where the sum of Main+Cross tension is equal.
    Thanks.

    The short answer is No.

    If you strung a racquet at 65/55, it would not be the same as a racquet at 60/60.

    And since people obviously feel a difference in stringing their racquets with main and cross tensions different by only a few pounds, it would seem to me that they are not the same in terms of feeling and power.

    With that difference it is obvious, I meant with "logic" values with a difference about 2 or 3 lbs
