    And I think I might've had 52-56 tension before. DOnt exactly know. I told my mom to tell the shop to rise the tension a little bit. Think 60 will just effect me alot? And do most pros use around 60?

    Depends on what type of racquet your playing with. It should say something to the like of 57 +/- 5. Your going to get a lot less power, than when you had the 52 which is extremely low. I always string my racquets at the max...because I generate the power with my form, and like having as much control as I can get.

    had to do that with a turbo shark with X1 string. even at the highest tension the thing was a cannon. Luxilon cured that though :)
