    I've been playing great tennis with my Wilson Surge X of late, which is supposedly a PD + clone, minus the Babolat Woofer. I've got mine strung with Kirschbaum Touch Turbo 17 @ 60 lbs and it is giving me a great balance of control and power. I am going to demo the new Baolat Aerpro Drive +, so I am wondering, what tension would I have to string it up at with the same string, to negate the Woofer Grommet trampoline effect? I hit a pretty flat shot, so balls start flying on me with racquets with "Woofer-like" grommets , such as the Prince Sweetspot Suspension, and the Vokl CAtapult.

    If you string it a couple of lbs. higher than the top of the tension range marked on the frame it should cancel the woofer effect.
