New racket and stringS
question for you, do you thing using a control string with a new racket, then slowly changed it for a repulsion string, then higher the tension make sense?
I was thinking this is a good way to learn how to control a totally new racket before going for hitting hard.

Sorry u have to rephrase the question. What is a control string? If u are referring to strings which have 'CONTROL' label on their packaging. Those are usually harder strings, ie they do not 'bounce' as much, not very repulsive.
To learn to control a new racket or get used to a new racket is always to use it all the time. Don't go back n use yr old rackets for at least 10 hours of games. By then u will know whether that new racket is going to benefit u or not. Also use yr regular strings if possible, unless the seller is very knowledgeable n can recommend appropriate strings for your type of play.

Thank you, yes i was refering to a string with "Control" label.
It was just a simple idea I v got, in case you change your racket with new specificities (more flex or stiff, or lighter ...).
I m obviously using the same racket most of time (diff for double and single) and the same string model for quiete a few time. Only the tension had changed.
