    Iv just purchases a reel of Big Ace and would like to know what tension to string it? I currently use Weiss Cannon Silver String at 59 what would you suggest?

    Thanks

    Sart off at the same tension. If too stiff decrease the tension or if too soft increase the tension.

    hey man!

    i would personally suggest upping the tension a bit to start with because BA is very very soft

    Thanks . I'm thinking about 62 ? How you customized 200s treating you? Have you polarized them?

    i honestly don't know what that is... by my 200's are SICK!

    I've changed them up slightly so they are probably around 12.8 oz now

    the plow through is unbelievable even with no weight added to the head!

    wellllllll if you must know ;)

    i took off the synthetic grip that came stock (god-awful grip) and added 16g of lead along the bevels, then added 3g inside the throat, 3g inside the handle, and 10g wrapped around the top of the pallet
