I like mine strung just a tad higher than most of the responses I've read 55/46 is what I'm doing. I hate strings moving around and I get a little more control this way. I customized the grip (easy operation) to get the rectangular grip I prefer, and I use an overgrip which combined added a few grams. Then I added about 9grams total at the 10, 12 and 2 positions. My frame is now right at 12 oz which is where I like it. The added weight in the hoop makes it a little head heavier than the other frames I use but I don't notice it at all with this frame. Also, the added weight at 10 and 2 really stabilizes the hoop - I get a very consistent hit regardless where I make contact with the ball.Just got a pair of the non ported Beast 98 few weeks ago. Played maybe about 10 hours total in stock form. Coming from a modded DR98 (2017 - leather + OG + 4gr lead at 3&9) that ended in 12.5oz, I found the Beast in stock form need a bit more plowthrough. Plan to add leather grip and a bit of lead.
Anyone ending up with similar conclusion? Also, anyone found the frame is string sensitive? I strung it with filled poly lower than normally. 48lbs with my modded DR98 to now 44-46lbs. Any string setup recommendation?
