    What's the worry? The difference in tension? If you're thinking the difference in tension is a problem -- forget about it. A difference of a couple of pounds is nothing, and many people string the mains and crosses at slightly different tensions.

    Well.......

    I think that he is worried that the tension on the Lux is actually higher than on the Synth. If Luxs statement of the 10% differential is correct then the mains are at approx 55lbs and the crosses at 52, all things being equal. I do not think that this is enough of a difference to harm the racquet. Should be fine.

    ^^He saids BB at 50 and synth at 52. so???? BB is lower in tension. I don't see any problem with this. Actually this combo at this tension should play great/
