    They range from as low as 40 lbs to as high as 80 lbs. You'll have be more specific.

    80!?:shock: I've seen Pete at 75lbs with gut.

    Really you do not need to be concerned with what the pros are stringing at as it is of no value to you

    I think muster had strung his racquet very high as well, I believe 34 or more kilos!
