I have to try tension in high 40s though DT=30 is very close to the recommended threshold 28. I sent an email to ERT-300 manufacturer 'BEERS Technic GmbH' asking why they recommend NOT to play with DT below 28. The answer was '...Our recommendations are based on experiences of tournament players preferring higher DT for better Control in their powerful games. DT 28 (newly strung) is a low string bed stiffness. Going even lower than 28 we then will reach the situation of a “hanging net” (reduced playing feed back, less control). ... '

Rhaudiogeek, Do you notice string movement on your racquet with such a low tension or your strings still 'snap' back?
