    I've heard through different sources that several pros including Nadal and Federer have recently dropped their string tensions very significantly.
    Some have supposedly, even though I have trouble believing it, dropped down into the mid 30's lbs range. Has anyone heard anything about that?
    I did some net searching and found that Federer was at 48.5 x 44 lbs. But hava not found anything in the 30's.

    I know that Andy Roddick dropped from around 75 to what was it, 45? Either way, it was a huge drop like that.

    Also, are you a fan of the Roland TR-808?

    I think he's talking about musical instrument.
