Default Strings

Choices for strings:
Gamma Professional 16 gauge or 17 gauge
Babolat Excel 16 gauge or 17 gauge
A starting tension should be the middle range plus 2 pounds
It can be adjusted )if necessary) on when strung the second time
Soft strings do "hide" stiffness of a racket to some extent
A very trivial remark
It is very important to test/demo a racket BEFORE buying
