Yonex Ti-5 Titanium Mesh string enquires
I recently purchased a Yonex Ti-5 Titanium Mesh 2011 Limited Edition from ebay. It should be arriving soon and I am so excited. I am currently using Yonex Arcsaber 009DX and I can't say I like it because it just seems to heavy.
Anyways, it is written on the racket specs that the string tension is suggested at 15~20lbs. Isn't that a little too low? I'm a bit confused about that. Could anyone explain or clear my doubt about it?
I used to use Ti-5 a few years back when I was still an active player but I broke it. If I remember correctly, I used 22lbs then. It was the original version. I'm not sure if it was real or a counterfeit but it served me well.
Also, if anyone could suggest to me what string I should use? I have a good natural strength, can easy hit all the way to the base line and decent control with net shots. As a women's player my advantage definitely is my strength and 'slightly' above average tactical play on the net shots. My biggest weakness is that I'm a lazy mover even though I have the 'semi-right' footwork.
Thanks for your time!

The recommended tension is just for warranty purposes. If you go above 20lbs, Yonex won't give you a new racket if it breaks because of string tension. That being said, i don't think anyone has ever broken a racket stringing it below 25lbs (assuming they did it correctly)
