    Default Rackets and string variation.

    For example, when I was using ti-10s (RIP) I liked the tension at 23lbs with bg85. But i just strung my at800 0f with the same set up and its not nearly as good as 75ti @ 23lbs. Same with the at800df. As for the MP90, I`ve only strung at 23lbs with 75ti, so I have no frame of referance. And I have tried my friends ti-10 strung at 23lbs with 75ti and didn`t like it nearly as much as bg85 @ 23lbs.

    So..... does anyone else like a specific string and tension for some rackets but not others? Or do you string the same tension and string for all your rackets?

    The characteristic of the players and the strings are different.
    I strung my MP99 with BG-65 at 10 kg (lbs ?), but at 9 kg if I use BG-85.
    I strung my MP100 and AT-700 with BG-65 at 10 kg.

    1 kg = 2.2 pounds,

    Therefore 10 kg tension is 22 pounds, quite normal.

    I personally string all my racquets at around 25 lbs or tension 70 where I am which is the same (aka tension 70 = 25 pounds) using the same string, BG 66.
    I use this for all my racquets, whether it's mp 23 or the cab8600 light, and they all feel the same. I usually focus more on my game than the equipment. Concentrate on the game not the racquet.
