    Why do they vary from brand to brand? Generally speaking, searching for a 95-98 sq in head, 18x20 pattern, similar weight, it's curious to me that rec tension is not closer overall.

    Bab 52-62
    Head 48-57
    Dunlop 55-65
    Prince, Wilson, Pacific 50-60
    Donnay 40-60 (yes forty)
    PK 55-68
    Yonex 45-60 (actually a 16x19 pattern, I think)

    Head's high rec is around Dunlop's low rec. PK's high limit is 11-lbs more than Head. I suppose manufacturers know their product best, so they must give those numbers for a reason. Thoughts? Thanks.
