    Hi,

    Yes the newer ones are listed at 57-67. The older "SERIES 110" were listed like 50-80.. or something like that. Many string these frames into the 70s. When I was playing that frame.. I was stringing about 69-70. I had both the newer and older models.

    Regards,
    Steve

    My POG OS from the early 80's says 72 lbs minimum, 80 lbs maximum. Whoa! I recently (within the last year) strung it at 68 lbs with PSGD and the stringbed feels as stiff as ever. I'm also stringing wood racquets at around 50 lbs when I used to use in the 60's, so either strings are much less elastic now then they used to be or stringing machines are calibrated differently now than before.

    I tried to string my POG Series 110 (72 lbs min - 80 lbs max) at 80 lbs but the string broke.
