    I would imagine that the racket will be able to take higher tensions than you. Anything up to 28-30 Lbs should be safe on almost all reasonably modern rackets. You'd probably be fine to go higher than that, but I don't see why you'd want to and you'd need a good stringer.

    The difference between tensions is quite profound. If you're a powerful player, you'll be able to generate more power at higher tensions, as well as more control. This is why pros string at such high tensions. If you're not powerful and play at high tensions, you may gain a little bit of control, but you won't be able to make the strings move so you'll get little power and may hurt yourself. If you're not powerful, chances are, you'll be better off at lower tensions as they'll repulse easier and won't hurt you when you try and hit big shots.
