    I find this web site most informative, do to the fact that there are many with greater knowledge than I, but am learning everyday "THANKS" to YOU! I have question in string tension for three different head size racquets? Let say you string a 100in. racquet with the mains(poly) @52lbs. and crosses(gut) @50lbs. What tension would you string a 98" and a 95" to get the same feeling as the 100"? I know the tension is low.....but my age is higher than most of yours. I am sure which racquet and flex, etc. will have an effect on tension. Thank you all for your contribtion to this site........I visit it daily!!! Thanks...

    Assuming the string pattern is the same, I would go down 2lbs. for the 98", and another 2lbs for the 95". For a denser string pattern, even more.

    I would stick to the same tension and then find your preference slowly.
