Yep. Been stringing at 32lbs myself and I certainly was thinking I would hit EVERYTHING out. But man are the lower tensions awesome.

I really think that some magic happens at the lower tensions and the common wisdom is flipped on its head. There is a 100+ page thread in the strings section about low low tensions.

You were smart not to tell them
