Smasher08,

After following both of your playtest threads I think I am ready to give it a shot with the gut/ cofocus 17 1.18


Before I string it up I was wondering if you could help me with the tensions. I know there is no way to know specifically for my racket, but just looking for general guidelines.


Right now I string up my OS at 65 lbs with gut. I find the gut to be just a bit too powerful after it settles in.

Since I will be crossing the gut with cofocus, should I leave the main gut tension the same? My thinking is that the crosses would help tame the power of the gut. Do you find this to be true in this setup?

If I leave the gut tension the same should the tensions be 65 lb gut mains/ 62 cofocus crosses?

I'm stringing it in these higher tensions because of my racket being an OS. I've read that polys are not meant to be strung so high. If I string cofocus up at 62 lbs, will I be killing the string? This is my first experiment with poly.

Thanks in advance
