    Just started playing again …. Long layoff … I’m restringing an old favorite from the 80’s. I’ve got a Prince Graphite Volley 110, circa 1986 with a recommended tension of 65-75lbs. You don’t see those tensions these days.

    I want to compare the “Volley” to a “new” OPG OS I just got from TW; but I’m not sure about stringing the old volley up to 70lbs.

    What’s the recommendation … I’ll be using Yonex Tour Super 850

    All input welcome …

    I'd go right in the middle of the reco tension....after all, those guys know more about the frame than you do...
