    Then string it at a lower tension. Try 22x24 instead. BG80 feels harder than BG80P in my experience and I didn't like BG80P at all. To soften the feeling of BG80, I string it at a lower tension and now it feels great!

    It might take some time and a lot of money, but it's worth the investment once you've found your winning combination.

    Why buy an expensive racket and not find a good string combo? You could cut every month if its a low tension. Its like buying a ferrari and then putting low grade fuel in it.

    A racket is only as good as its string, and a string is only as good as its racket.

    Either raise the tension by two pounds or drop by two pounds and see how you go.

    You most likely need to lower the tension then.
