    I'm stringing a Wilson Hope, which is a breast cancer donation racquet and it doesn't have any stringing instructions. I've seen some instructions online saying the tension is 40-50 lbs and I've seen another that said 28-38 lbs. Can anyone give me an advice on stringing this racquet?

    40-50 lbs sounds like for tennis racquets and 28-38 lbs is for racquetball racquets. I have strung a few of the racquetball hope racquets.

    Go to the Wilson site and find the basic stringing information for both tennis and racquetball there.

    is it possible to go above 50 lbs? she's a little bit more advanced and more so than this racquet but she just wanted a cheap one for the time being.

    Which Hope racket is it? The Hope Pro is listed at 28-35 lbs on the Wilson side and the K Hope Pro does not have a tension range.

    I'm not sure what it was, she got it at target apparently. Around the world stringing did not work well on it though...couldnt get through the last blocked hole to tie off the last cross.
