    tenniswarehouse states the max tension for this racquet is 66 lbs, whereas on the racquet it says 51/59lbs which would mean 59 max. Do i risk anything like a snap by stringing at like 63 lbs?

    I would go by what is on the racket... I've got one and that is what I have done. I've tried a bunch of different strings and by far my favorite combination is Luxilon ALU Power at 54 lbs with a big old worm dampener. The best controlled, most spinny, most solid setup I have ever felt!

    The Storm was good with all the other strings I tried too, but I never went higher than 59 lbs with a synthetic gut. 59 was extremely crisp, "stiffer" than the Luxilon.

    I would stick with Babolats range for initial experimenting...

    Babolat lists optimal woofer tension ranges on rackets. TW lists the maximum tension Babolat has said that their rackets can be strung without voiding the warranty/harming the racket...so no, you don't risk snapping the racket.

    exactly.

    also, by stringing at higher tensions, the woofer effect is minimized.

    What don't people at least try what is recommended by the manufacturer? They are not calling for a certain string with that tension, they are calling for a tension range...There is no marketing in that, they have nothing to gain/loose with a recommendation. Why not give it a try?
