    Hi guys,

    Need help... what tension would you recommend, Im gonna put Nxt Tour 16 on a PSBLX 90? It's my first time using this string and I have no idea what tension I am gonna use... I usually string my rackets with RPM blast and I would like to try this one...

    The recommended tension for that racquet is 50-60 lbs. So what do you want? control or power? If you're not sure, string it in the middle and go from there. If you find your balls are flying long all the time, then string higher (in increments of 2 lbs). If you can't hit the baseline to save your life, then string lower.

    Thaks for the comment anubis... Actually I don't have the luxury of testing the right tension for this string... a friend of mine just gave this for free... I usually use an rpm blast on my k90 and KPS88 around 48-50lbs lower than the recommended tension of 50-60lbs.

    Hey guys anyone here have tried the Next Tour on a wilson 90...

    57 or 58 should have comparable stringbed stiffness.
