Interested to hear how it works out for you though.
With the cooler winter weather, I like to go down some in tension. Of course, we are in a heat spell and will hit 80 for the next week or so.

When I tried the DM at 54 in the Exos, my serve was a creampuff. Just not enough pop. Keep in mind the Exo has a flex rating of 52 which is very low.

The two upcoming experiments I'm most curious about are the Ashaway Dynamite test and prestretching X1 combined with low tension.
