There's always recommendations that racquets should be strung at low 40's. Why is that? I forgot what happens to the racquet strung like this, but I don't need an overpowered racquet. I can generate it myself. Second question: does the racquet become stiff if strung at 58/56? I just don't want to get injured over stringing it too tight. I'm using BB Bomber (17g) and plan on getting the 16g version. Here's my plan. Racquet 1: Recommended set-up for more control Racquet 2: See above Racquet 3: 2-3 lbs tighter Racquet 4: 2-3 lbs looser I'm a stringing novice, so any help is welcome.
