    Hi,

    Can someone advice with what string I should use?

    Recently I broke my string on a Windstorm 650 Li-ning's racket, so I went to get it re-string. I didnt know what I wanted so I asked the shop to recommend me something. So he recommended AP-62 and the tension I asked for is 24..perhaps I am not used to 24? Since I have been playing with a 22-23 if Im not wrong.

    The 24' gives a very hard tension, I seems to be mis hitting it alot and the sound is just different..feels very stiff and hard..should I get it re-string?

    Need some advice.

    Thanks and best regards.

    Higher tension is stiffer, needs more power to make the strings bend. Smaller sweet spot if im correct.
