    I am currently testing on some strings with different tensions.
    I'm not sure weather you will have the same exprience with me.

    BG 65 and 66 : if i string it at 23 and 24lbs. i feel that i lose some power in my smashes and drives. Have anyone tried string them at 27 to 29lbs?

    BG 65ti and 66Ti : I strung it at 27 - 28lbs. But it losses its tension within few weeks. maybe goes down to 24lbs. Is this a common problem?

    I hope some of you can share your views and experience in using strings with different tension. you might also want to state the racquet that your using with.

    M using MP90JP at the moment.

    Personally, I think this is very common.

    The higher the tension, the larger "ratio" it losses its tension. Generally, according to my own experience, the tension will lose relatively faster within the 1st several wks, and later it will be more stable.

    Also, Ti string could me ultra "slippery" due to the Ti "coat", which will give a little bit more problem in lossing tension.
