    Default what's ideal tension in my case???

    I just poped the factory string on my 6 days old raquet.
    I got bg-65 replacement strings.
    My raquet is a Pointfore Ti5500, fast, light, 3U.
    I'm a doubles player, and I smash heavy and I like alot of good precision dropshots and net play.

    I heard that bg 65 loses tension. what kind of tension should i have? 20 lb? I think my raquet can only handle 23 lb ??

    there goes 20 bucksters....

    i'd go for higher tension. You don't want too much bounce for netshots. Also, the max power for smashes requires a higher tension in light racquets as compared to heavy racquets. I'd go to at least 23lb next time.
