    hi everyone, just wanted to know if string thickness affected the durability of the frame or put more stress on the frame? For example if i had 2 sets of strings (bg65/70 and bg80) strung at the same tension (23-26lbs) will there be a difference in the pressure put on the frame due to thinner/thicker strings? :confused:

    Given the racquets are strung by the same stringer and done correctly, there should be no difference to the frame. Only thing is the grommets. The thinner one will cut into the grommet faster. With the same force, the thinner string has higher pressure on the grommet. However, it take very long time to do some damage even at 26lb. So don't worry about it...
