    Hi guys, I'm new in this forum!!!!
    i'm wonder if anyone can help me with the PHT for my main string. I useing Head MG Prestige mid. I have been useing CF 17g main 53lbs/ PSGD 16g 56lbs cross for a while. I'm planning to change CF to PHT. which gauge should i choose??

    1.Do you think it's really different if I use PHT 16g?

    2. I always strung CF 17G on main around 53 lbs, what tension should i put on the PhT 16g or 17G?

    thank you in advance!!!! I have been search also, but can't find exact answer!!!!

    Prestige mid has very dense string pattern so i suggest staying in 17 gauge. In my experience PHT looses quikly some tension and then kind of settles down. I would string it at the same tension as the crosses, but there might be different opinions as well.

    get the 17 and it is way stiffer than cyber flash so i suggest tensioning one or two pounds less.

    the stiffness ratings of these are as follow

    PHT 16 -270
    PHT 17 - 256
    CF 17 - 240

    i think you should string it 2 pounds less
