The less tighter a raquet is stringed, the less stable it will be?

    Not an accurate statement. The lower tension range can be very stable and perhaps even offer advantages over a tighter stringbed.

    Yep, nothing is universal in tennis and stringing. There are always the exceptions and variables to keep in mind. I would say it would be slightly MORE stable (i.e. forgiving) at a lower tension.

    Actually, the tighter the string, the less deflection potential, and the more the racquet will vibrate and shake on shots outside the sweetspot.
