Thanks for a little support from sw stringer+sypl.I also had a lot of people tell me you cant string below 56 lbs.+ have control, which was not true at all.I have strung natural gut as low as 47 lbs.+ it played with great control, with certain racquets. I have been changing racquets more in the past year or so, i will find a great combo of strings+tension for 1 racquet then switch to another +that same set up wont play anything like it did on the racquet i was using. With a new racquet i have to experiment for at least a month to find the right string+tension, this is were just changing the x's can save you time+money.I am always surprised at how much just changing the x's can change the way a racquet plays. I always use natural gut mains+ i use the syn. x's to tame the power out of the gut.I play almost every day so i save one stick for matches only which i play 2-3 times a week. I can usually get at least 3 weeks out of my match racquet so after a week or so i change the x's.When i do this i put the replacement x's in a few lbs. lighter than i did the originals. I have had no problems period, even though all the experts that never try anything different tell me this is wrong.I have done this many many times on different racquets with no problem, even though you supposedly cant do this.
