    String tension

    Hi. i'm using Head Liquidmetal Prestige Midplus
    string snapped yesterday, and i'm buying a new string today and getting it strung.
    but the problem is, i don't know what tension to do.
    these are the strings i'm planning to buy

    Babolat Pro Hurricane Hybrid 16L for Main
    and
    Babolat VS Touch Hybrid 16L for Cross

    i'm looking more to control than power.
    i want some topspin also.
    please suggest me a good string tensions to do.
    thank you ^^

    You say you want control and topspin. I thought about buying that racquet but chose the Volkl Tour 10 VE. I would string the racquet around 57-60. This would give you control but a little bit of pop and topspin. Finding the right string tension is all about playing around and give or take a few lbs.
