    I was wondering what tension I should get my racket strung at? I favor control over power bcause I can supply my own. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    I agree with at least 2 lbs over midrange. If in doubt, I'd say bump it up. I went with 60 and it's just about right although there might still be a little too much pop for my taste. This is with duraflex 16 if that helps at all...I chose that because it's good and cheap so a restring won't bother me too much.

    I'm coming from a TT warrior strung at 60 so I'm still getting used to the feel of the flexpoint. The warrior feels so solid it's like hitting with a 2x4 and the flexpoint has a cushier feel -- it makes judging the tension a little tough for me.

    i started at 58 with synthetic gut (gamma 18)

    damn, I didn't remember how regular strings moved compared to my habitual bigbanger timo 18....

    RCS didn't carry luxilon...

    I decided to get it strung at 60. Because I'm looking for more control.

  9. I started at 60 with xcel. Too much flex--not enough power. Switched to BB Alu @ 58. A noticeable difference, especially on serves.
