How to reduce the string tension?
I let my racket strung, but I find out it is somehow too hard.
How can I reduce the tension?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. this forum looks somehow different I meant, more beautiful

sooner - just cut the strings and restring it at a

Reducing string tension
Lend your racket to a friend who hits very hard or smashes a lot for his warm up. This may reduce the tension. Hope he doesn't break your string.

Smash with it, it might help. When I strung my racquet at 22x24 and smash alot with it, it always lose 1-2 lbs very fast, especially if it's bg-65

A really dangerous move would be untie the knot and retie it a little bit off, but I don't recommend it this way because it's too risky.

Hope he has enough left out string to make the new knot first.

Add vinegar to the string.

Thanks to all, I will try all the way you suggest (even with the vinegar)
My string BG 68 Ti .. it doesn't loose the tension so fast, I think.
Anyone has experience with BG 68Ti?

Damn! I would rather do it the old-fashioned way... smashing continously with nylon birdies.

It's always the same I notice after a restring the tension is a bit too much until I have played with it for about a week then it is fine and things stay in the court more.
Does leaving a racket in a warmer place not losen the strings off slightly?

I don't want to try vinegar because yo'all know what it smells like
You can just use it for hours and it should go down a pound or two.
