I've strung pretty much every string I have ever used really tight, but BBO just looooves being strung loose.

I HATE tight BBO, it is just awful.


I like high tension also, I use a prince rebel and with full poly set ups like dunlop BW or yonex PTS I string at 68-70 lbs. My first set of 17g. 4G I went with 67 lbs. and it played really nice.

I did not notice that it was super low powered or dead and stiff like some claimed. It had great feel, good control and spin and plenty of power. My next set I tried 70lbs. and it was okay but I liked the 67lbs. better. After hitting with it over 4 times it still plays very nice, has not went from great to crap like alu does.
Pacific BX2 X Force pro. wilson sensation 17 G. 60 lbs.
