    New strips for nBlade 98 and tension suggestions needed!!!???

    Hi guys,

    I need some help here. I am looking to replace the original wilson strips which the racquet came with. Which ones would you recomend me? Which tension in mains and crosses?
    I am looking for a nice tension to get power and pace on my game, wouldnt like my tension to be too soft.

    Which tension does the nBlade 98 come with when you buy it from the shop (with the wilson strips)?

    Thanks.

    its recommended tension is 50-60. i think it's mainly preference on what tension you want. try 55 as a starter.

    Just strung up two of these for a buddy with Prince Syn Gut w/Duraflex 16G at 57 lbs. Not my racquet or preference in strings but it does feel nice!

    That was hard...

    Try PSGD at about 54 lbs. If you have deep pockets try Klip legend 16ga mains at 53lbs and PSGD 16ga crosses at 56lbs. The NG will last a long time on that frame.

    I currently use Wilson NXT Tour 17 in my N Blade, strung at 53 lbs. Very nice power and control

    Wilson NXT Tour 16 at 55 much better than hybrids for me at least.
