Ya the pro players have not experimented with all different tensions and do not know as much as the players on this site do. Even though if you averaged their tensions out it would be somewhere in the mid 50's.

They are missing out by not stringing in the 20's, one of the low tension fanatics should let them know that they are playing with the wrong tension. Here is a list from this years AO, it appears more than obvious that they are not to big into these low tensions.
