    I just bought a Carbonex 20 SP and strung it with BG80 at 23 lbs. I find that the strings move alot during the game and feel very loose. I would also prefer a higher pitched sound at contact. What could be a better alternative for the string and tension? What string makes a high pitch sound? What is a good tension for a Carbonex 20?

    I switched from BG80 to BG68-Ti a while ago. I have been told that the BG68-Ti is the same as BG80 with a titanium addition, but their performance is rather different. After some minor initial problems, things have now fallen into place. The BG68-Ti feels much harder than the BG80 strung at the same tension. I have mine at 24 lbs, and it gives a lot of power and repulsion. Plus, BG68-Ti has a very high pitched sound, almost metallic. It sings!
