    I have nothing to offer regarding tension, but I share your appreciation of the racquet. I've seen a few on e Bay and have been tempted to get one and see if the magic is still there. :)

    The sting was the first graphite racket i ever had. i remember the leather case that came with it. loved the racket but it felt like it weighed 10 pounds, but i was using the 110 back then. great classic racket. i saw one on **** a few weeks ago for $17, should have snatched it up!

    Good soft multi will work great.......they were designed in the time of gut and nylon. in the early 80s we would string them from a low of 55 to 65lbs - most folks played them at just around 60 or 61lbs.

    Near 60lbs using multi you will probably achieve good results
