Hi Guys (& Girls), I'm new to the forum but have viewed a few threads here, from time-to-time, in the past (as a guest). I'm actually a squash player (and an accredited squash coach). I also restring (and repair) racquets. Being a squash player, I mostly restring squash racquets (90%). However, I also restring a smaller proportion of badminton and tennis racquets (10%). I'm mystified as to why you guys like to string your racquets at such high tensions....often way above what the manufacturer recommends? My advice, to squash players, in particular, is to rather string their racquets at a lower tension to improve power (with some smaller sacrifice in control). Is it that you guys (who often refer to yourselves as "hard hitters") are after more control? Aren't you sacrificing a significant amount of power by stringing to such high tensions (I'm talking about those of you stringing to 30lbs or so)? Anyone who is able to shed some light on this, for me, would be much appreicated!
