Hey PP,Ross you will be fine..sorry to cause anxiety. If it is a hair loose..next time, raise to around 52#s..it should be a real nice match for the stiffer APD..great string.
I agree with you. The more I read the more confusing it seems to get. Some say string low others say no I string at my regular tension. I think I'll just stick with what I've been using and let the string alchemists experiment all they want. I don't have the time nor money to keep playing around like this.Hey PP,
No, not at all. I got a bit confused, I think, between BHBH, B5E, and different threads/posts saying you should string a lot lower than is 'the norm' (ie, @ 40s)... dear oh dear... LOL - too much time in the strings section drives you ga-ga!
stringing your own frees one to try strings/combos that might not be available otherwise. fortunate are the readers that can sift through the posted experiences and find reliable unbiased info.Yeah..if you are going to experiment, it is way better to have a machine then pay every time. I did not tinker as much with strings when I was paying and waiting to get the racquets back.
It seems like you now understand that there's an unspoken expression preceding all comments about someone's experience with a given string. That expression is "in my opinion...". Every now and then you'll find someone stating his/her experience as fact, but I think that's the exception rather than the rule.I agree with you. The more I read the more confusing it seems to get.

Let us know how the gut/b5e feels in comparison to b5e/mcsAm planning to run one set of B5E as a cross with gut mains (Pacific Tgh Gut 16L) and wondered what you all thought about the tension for that setup. As stated above--using a Prince Diablo MP 16*18 100" frame and have one set up with B5E/MCS 48/52 and will be strung on Babolat Star 5 (which strings it up pretty tight).
Was thinking about going gut mains/B5E at 56/53? Thoughts
Around Friday. Though I could leave it until the following week as there's a certain BC 30 I might want to check out first!Ross..when do you get your Bab back? The pocketing of the B5e combined with the lower tension in that stick could really give you that feel you miss with the tweeners.
