From Luxilon’s instagram. Any guesses on who gets strung @ 13 lbs?
I really dont' think that racket is Wilson Ultra although it is painted like one.Top picture is Barbara Strycova with Lux Original usually around 36kg; bottom picture is Kei's. You can see the grip tape is a different colour; and the string being pulled in the bottom pic is not Original.
Doesn't the stringer complain that they have to string at such a high tention like 70 lbs ? as a stringer, that puts you at high risk for breaking the string right there on the machine. even the best stringers will tell you that.When I first saw the post I assumed Nestor was the low tension and Venus was the high tension since she already normally strings around 68-70 lbs.
The customer is always right. If they want their racquet strung at 80, you'll string it at 80. The customer has to know the risks that come with that tension.Doesn't the stringer complain that they have to string at such a high tention like 70 lbs ? as a stringer, that puts you at high risk for breaking the string right there on the machine. even the best stringers will tell you that.
I watched him play up close at Cincinnati last year and you can clearly hear the difference in his tension compared to other players. It's crazy.Thank you….Nestor was the guy I was going to guess but couldn't think of the name. Kept picturing Steve Buscemi in my mind.
Wouldn't it easier and better to just go to lower powered frame ? instead stringing so tight to get the control. or just go to lower powered poly, I know once you get hooked on 4G, it is addicting. and I had no idea that 4G could be strung so high without breaking even....Dustin Brown supposedly strings 4g at 82 lbs.

When I string high, I always tend to rock backwards on my heels as the string goes under tension,,,Strycova and yes I’m sure.
