When in doubt 54-58lbs for any midplus racquet. Personally never tried black code, strung it for a friend at 59lbs in his Pure Drive Plus, really liked it at that tension.

My friend likes his babolat, let him have it. :)

Personally I'm a thin box beam midsize guy myself.

He speak truth! I've recently bumped my tension down to 49/47 using 4G. I suspect any poly works better, nay much better at lower tensions. The ball pocketing is sublime!

I'm liking Bc 17 at 48 lbs in my 100 sq in 16x19 APD, so 42 lbs in a prestige seems comparable.

True story! Love the string at that tension on tight patterns.

Some still freak out when they hear 42 lbs for poly. Jack Sock plays all poly at 38 lbs in mid+ and has a much faster swingspeed than anyone on TT. Daniel Nestor is playing natural gut mains/poly crosses at 40/38 lbs, and he too has a much faster swingspeed than anyone here.

I play multi mains in the 50-54 range with TF RuffCode poly cross -4 lbs below mains. 52/48 works well.

Try BC around 48/46 and adjust up or down until you reach nirvana. Full poly at 48/46 will play plenty firm and generate loads of spin.

Thank´s guys for the tips. I´m using now 59 lbs (my friends suggestion) and it really feels a bit hard. Next time I`ll put much less and try find the right tension (and nirvana) for me :)
