    try something around 54 or 55 and go up or down a pound depending on your initial experience

    I went down 4 pounds when moving to poly,but still experimenting on the strings.I guess it could still change depending on the final string selection

    Luxilon, Signum Pro, and others recommend 10%. I think they know what they're talking about and I agree with them.

    Go 10%... For most people that works out to 5 or 6 lbs lower.
