    I read that Yonex reccomends that you string crosses 2-3 pounds lower on their racquets. Is this true? I do not own a Yonex, but my tfight 320 has a similar head shape to it. I was wondering if that is something I should try on the Tfights that I own.

    For a good % of Yonex racquets it is listed to string the X's 5% lower than M's for maximum performance.It is not listed as such for the Tfights.

    When I played with a Yonex frame I found that sticking to the 5% rule for stringing crosses produced a better feel to the string bed.
