    Hi guys,

    I just finished stringing one of my BLX PS 90's using Solinco Tour Bite 1.20 (great great string BTW!!).

    I strung my mains with a reference tension of 44 lbs and my crosses with a reference tension of 42 lbs. I'm using a Toalson ST-II crack lock-out machine.

    Immediately after finished I used RacquetTune to measure the tension, and to my surprise, the reading was 50.9 lbs!!! I calibrated my machine last week and even strung a few sticks with a generic 2 piece jobs and the readings were spot on: after using 55 lbs for mains and 53 lbs for crosses with a Toalson Rencon 1.25, the reading was 53.5 lbs.

    Any ideas or reasonings behind this?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Best,

    Jon

    Did you use the default poly settings for Tour Bite or measured and entered the appropriate data into RacquetTune?
