I string mines at 41 lbs mains vs. 37 lbs crosses - that's the original starting tension, of course it drops off more with time - using MSV Focus Hex. So with that low tension, one has to accelerate the racket head through the ball to get the needed control (but nothing like the vicious Nadal swing).@PSC85 , @Sanglier , @shamaho , @WYK ,
I was hitting with a Clash 98 a friend was demoing the other day and it was strung with Lux Element at 53lbs. I absolutely loved emulating the young guns whipping that thing Rafa like and creating more spin than usual. My hitting buddy who was demoing the 4 different Clashes told me to knock it off because he couldn't hit my shots although they were right back at him and miraculously landing in. I hit three other Clashes that day but none gave me that satisfaction that way. My buddy mentioned that the Clashes cost 249.00 ea. I said "Yeah, I know." All 4 of those Clashes are spec'd at 55RA
We are going hitting again today with the Clash demos but I want to string my lightest 4-stripe POG 90 with the only poly I have, Wilson Revolve, and take it along with me. I wonder if 53 is the right tension? I never had much luck with my choice of tension or types of poly in the POG 90s, always reverting back to Ashaway Kevlar x Zyex.
My lightest out of 9 POG 90s, is a 4-Stripe with Midsize on the hoop, not 90 on the hoop. With synthetic grip, one OG, poly string - it weighs 11.89.
