Regular Cyclone 16 (Anthracite Colour)?Stringing up Cyclone 16. If I normally string BHB7 at 57, should I string Cyclone at that tension as well?
Also, how is the tension maintenance of Cyclone in the heat?
String it at 56lbs to 58lbs both Mains and Crosses on CP Machine. If you are using a Crank LO, double pull every string.
I've used this string in PS97s in temps ranging from 10 Degrees C right upto 40 Degrees C without any significant impact on tension maintenance. Key is to keep the racquets in a thermo protected bag when not in use.
But do note that we restring racquets with fresh Cyclone after max. of 6 hours of hitting so tension maintenance does not figure that much in our equation.
In an RF97A or PS97 you will notice a significant drop in tension in the first 20 minutes of use unless you let the fresh string bed "rest" for 24 hours before play. (That way most of the initial loss will be static tension loss)
