All Wiesscannon are trying to do is be helpful to 'the man in the street' who won't know much about string materials, stiffness, adjusting tensions etc. They make the same suggestions with Mosquito Bite (8% lower), Explosiv! (7% higher) and probably the rest of their string range.

Confirm it all.....just got the string and it only says "string 8% less"

However, regarding the pro hurricane string it gives you a recommended tension

1.20 and 1.25 gauge at 48 lbs

1.30 and 1.35 gauge at 62 lbs which it seems to high but that's what's written
