    I have my Babolat VS 17 up to 72lbs, Tonic 16 up to 68, but I am using the services of an expert stringer (strings for ATP Masters tourneys) with a good Babolat machine.

    What frame are you using ? Gut holds it tension better than other strings so I would not worry about trying to go to max tensions.:cool:

    Its going to be in a prince 03 red was asked to string it at 62lbs but i thought gut would be better strung at a lower tension ?

    also would gut be best in the mains or crosses ??

    thanks
