String tension vs Head Size

Hi, my current setup is a Babolat Pure Drive using and hybrid string. Main is VS gut at #54 and Cross is RPM at 52# and love how it play. I recently ordered a new racket (Wilson Prostaff 97L) and want to use the same hybrid string so my question is... Should I keep the same tension or drop it a couple of pound because of the head size difference? Pro Staff is 97sq and pure drive is 100sq. Thanks.

That's probably what I'd do also--drop it a few pounds to get the same power level.
You are only looking at a 3 sq. inch difference.
I would keep tension the same.
I actually agree with both of these. There is practically no difference between 97 and 100 sq in. If you laid one on top of the other, you probably couldn't tell the difference. I wouldn't reduce tension based on head size in this case, but if you want to increase the power slightly because you're switching to a less powerful racquet, then reduce the tension.

That's make sense. I guess I will have to try both ways and then decide.
