    Well a good stringer should calibrate their machine to give the right tension.

    A good stinger also need to ensure the string does not slip when clamped to a certain tension. This is often the culprit. Given a state-of-art to an inexperience stringer is next to useless.

    There is an ideal tension;for performance and without getting injuries.
    In my own opinions,the ideal tension depends on the racquets you have not the level you are at.
    You can go higher tensions only when you have stiffer shaft racquets.Flexible shafts racquets to go with higher tensions has no meaning.
    I do nineteen to twenty pounds with carbon fiber rackets which you can't find them anymore,unless you can travel back to two decades ago.
    I do twenty to twenty two with high modulus graphit racquets.
    I do twenty one to twenty three with "woven" racquets.
    I do twenty four pounds with "tungsten alloy"racquets.
    It doesn't matter what brands you prefer,racquets are usually made of pretty much the same materials.
    I would try one or two pounds higher at times with 0.68 and 0.70 gauge strings.I do less adventure with gauge 0.70 and above.Thick gauge strings are thick and strong...........

    ok, just for...

    1. i don't believe in that. using uber-stiff and too heavy/too light rackets might be connected to injuries. but the most important factor is technique... whatever, 2lbs more or less make such little difference on the impact on your body, i doubt it makes any difference at all... (concerning injuries...).
    2. that's just not true. i would prefer any racket with high tension, no matter if they're headlight/headheavy/3U/4U/whatever. just for the sake of more control! higher tension means more control, that's all i'm looking for when stringing.
    for a lower level player/beginner, i wouldn't recommend such high tensions. beginners don't have the technique/power and control to utilize high tensions. for beginners, it's better to use lower tensions (say up to 22lbs, max 24lbs, just to give a number...). you get more power out of that, strings last longer. again: not depending on the racket.
    3. that's just not true. higher tension gives you more control. when you look at netplay, rackets don't bend, no matter if you have stiif or flexible rackets. but string tension makes a huge difference when it comes to netplay. again: higher tension, more control.
    4. sorry, but that's bulls***. as explained above, you can get the advantages of higher tensions with any racket.

    again: you want to increase control by higher tensions and pay for it with some loss of power (and durability of rackets and strings, but that doesn't matter really...). the better you are, the more you look for control. because you have enough power/technique to play the shots you want anyway.
    therefore, the main determining factor for tension is the skill of the player.

    Try lower tension, say 21-22 lbs n c what happens. Alternatively, u can go to the gym to build up some muscles.

    I have strung my Arc 11 & BS 12 @ 26.5lbs with NBG98 JP coded, i think i may increase to 27lbs next time. I have previously used 66UM & BG80, i think NBG98 gave me better clear / higher repulsion.

    Default My Tensions

    I have my Carlton Ignite Power @25.5lbs with Nanogy 98.
    I had a karakal SL70 which was @26lbs in BG66 Ultimax.

    I prefer the feel of 25.5lbs with NBG98
