    Default Help! Strung Victor MX80 at 27lbs vertical & horizantal. Have I damaged racket?

    Hi guys,

    I am new on this forum, so apologies if I have asked a dumb question.

    I bought two new Victor MX80's and got them strung on 27lbs (I think on the vertical and the horizontal).

    But then I read the Max. String Ten.: H< 28 lbs, V< 26 lbs. So on the horizontal I have exceeded the max tension.

    Will this damage the racket at all? Even slightly?

    Thanks for you hrelp.

    It shouldn't be a problem for an mx80, usually the tension shown is a bit less than the racket can truly be strung to but if exceeded then the warranty will be no longer valid.

    It should be fine. As long as it was done properly, it won't be a problem. Some people request the same tension on the mains and cross.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Really appreciate it.

    Does anyone regularly string their MX80 at 27lbs or above on this forum?

    I don't have an MX80 but I have the MXJJS and several Braveswords, all strung at 31lb.

    Stringing Victor high-end rackets around 30 lbs shouldnt b a prob. MX-80 has a very stable n sturdy frame. But, as everyone has said, it is with the risk of having the racket warranty voided, should anything happen to the frame.

    Strung my own racket @ 27 lbs main (vertical) n 29 lbs cross (horizontal). With this setup, am achieving tension @ 28 lbs. There r others who strung their rackets at same tension for both main n vertical n they played just fine.

    A 3U MX80 will take 32/33.

    At least.

    It was Lee Dong Keun's (though I ran mine at 32/33 just before I sold it).

    Don't be afraid. The Mx frame can take a lot of load. I string my MX80 for a few years with tensions close to 30lbs and one year above 30lbs. I would recommend to do +2lbs on the cross for a better shape.

    Indeed - two of the Taipei boys run 33/33 (one Bravesword, one Thruster).
