Default You take risk using 62 pounds

As far as tension, I've strung them up at 56, 58, 62 - all mini Jet method - reason why that's important because at the last 2 mains - you have to add +4 lbs resulting in 60, 62, 66 tensions respectively. I've done 5 sets and no problems so far - it is just a slow process of getting it through the grommets. Know that going in - put eyon some good music, and just relax and take your time. It takes me around 1:10 minutes to do an 18x20 racquet with the mini-jet method.
You take risk using 62 pounds but it is your money
