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?
Depends on what string you use.A stiff poly like RPM Blast, Signum Pro or Kirschbaum Pro Line X does not move much at all.

I usually hybrid mine with a multi in the mains and co-poly on the cross. Works well for me.
