My advise is to find a player, shop or stringer who has a stringbed tester and find out what your stiffness is.

If you want control you need to be at 37 DT (kg/cm) or higher.
I'll do this. Great idea and suggestion.
The place uses Master stringers so I'm not sure why they would be different between the racquets if they are using the same tension and also using the same three stringing machines.
