    Can or does anyone have any idea where to find MSV string ratings by the string lab tests?!
    Thanks in advance :-?

    I have found use in using them to string my rackets to the feel that I like.
    For example, and this is just me here, I like the feel of Luxilon Alu Power at 50lbs. Topspin Cyber flash on the stiffness rating is 2 pounds less than the Alu so I string it at 52 lbs, 2 pounds more than I would string the Alu at, and it feels the same. To me that is. This way I can gauge what tension I can set my sticks at with different strings.

    Here is the website I have been using:

    NickB was banned. I'm NickC, and I string my frames with Focus HEX at 59. It's considerably softer and thinner than Alu, which I string at 55.

    I know that NickB got banned but I thought that he might still be lurking around somewhere.
    I saw your name on the thread I started about avatars and usernames

    I thought, when I was reading, your name was going to be Nicholas Cage!

    Ok you say it is softer than Alu...hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    I strung it at 57lbs in a hybrid but I didn't like the feel so I might want to string it lower.

    Ok

    I have no idea. It was a lot to deal with. Different people and their opinions.
