    I have a question for anyone that has used this string. Have you had to reduce the string tension you normally string your racquet at? I saw a few posts about reducing the tension by about 5-6 lbs. If I were ask that question on the other threads the question would have gotten lost and not answered but by maybe one person. I'd rather get a better feel if I need to do this with this string or not.
    Thank you for responding.

    I have tested quite a few multis and had all of them strung at the same tension. The thing is X1 is a rather stiff multi the first hour until it settles in. This could be what others suggest lowering the tension. Currently it is the string of choice for a multi until I can get my hands on the Laserfibre SNPS to test.

    I think X1 17g is fine being strung at a normal tension.

    I actually strung it quite high at 62 and it was great. I've left it in a beat up 88 that I use when it rains.

    I string mine at 62# also... I don't find it to be as stiff in the first hour or so of use as some people make it out to be, seems like quite a comfortable string to me. If you are a regular user of multis I would string the X-One at whatever tension you normally use
