Q. Does the ball still come off his racquet as well as it did when you first played him?
ANDY MURRAY: Yeah, I mean, I don't see major, major changes in his game. You know, he still hits the ball obviously extremely clean. He has his racquet strung very loose so the ball comes off his racquet with a lot of spin and it comes off his racquet quick.
You know, when he slices the ball stays very low. He's still serving very, very well. I think the serve's normally the first thing that goes, you know, with guys when they're getting towards the ends of their career. I think he's still serving pretty well.
So, are rec players stringing too tight?

What do people think?

Probably...I started stringing in the mid 40's and never went back.

no more arm problems....good spin..nice pop on vollys and a little more jump in my kick serve.

Didn't the Priority 1 guy say that players should string as low as possible while still keeping the ball in..?

I used to string poly hybrids in the high 50s and low 60s... now I never string above 50 or so.

Yep, that was Nate Ferguson's advice to all who'd listen. String as loosely as you can control.

It's a matter of preference really.

Agree with P1 but...........
 
We have always said the same thing when it come to using poly/-co-poly string. Stringing as low as possible gives you the best in performance and life span. However, pro players string every day so they can string as low as they like. They also switch out racquets when they begin to lose control.

Rec players have to think a little different and string a little higher because they keep the string in the racquet a hell of a lot longer. So find your perfect tension and string higher to allow the string to drop to your desired tension. Seems to work for our customers here anyway.

Cheers, TennezSport :cool:

I used to go 60's and high 50's, then tried that JET method in mid 40's. Since then, I have never gone higher than 48lbs on anything. I don't plan on it either.
