    I just had 2 rackuets stringed with the same exact poly string like I used before;I strung them at 54 lbs as usual .
    Now, I kept hitting to the net.I had to try real hard to get the balls over the net.
    It was no power also,or some balls just went wild.
    What can be wrong? :confused:

    Same stringer? Or different guy/ machine?

    You'd be shocked at the difference these can make. Tell two guys using the same machine to use the same reference tension and you can get VERY different results.

    maybe you were playing outdoors with dead balls where you would get much less power than indoors with new balls.
