After playing 3 matches (7 sets total) I rechecked my tension with RacketTune (iPod ap that works great!) and found that my tension had dropped 5 lbs. Funny thing is that the tension also dropped 5 lbs on my backup PD too that I haven't played with! That's a lot of tension drop and quite noticeable during play. I liked 60 much better than 55. Should I re-string at 62-65 next time??? What if I switch from VS Gut 16 to 17???
