    I mean where does your stringer start tensioning the main strings? From the middle? Or from one side as you described some stringers in Singapore?

    With the racket standing on the handle, the vertical strings first... from the middle, if I don't recall wrongly...

    Thanks.

    Why do you need them? Stencil Ink shortens the life span of the strings.... not to mention free publicity for YY.

    I'm sure my Kimoni Training Racket can take 40lbs. with no problems. I just strung it at 32lbs. and it didn't even budge...much.

    Oh, but it's 145grams.

    hold on..is there any difference in measurement of lbs in each countries?Assume if it's all the same,the highest tension i heard is about 32lbs(suggested)..n usually comes from some smaller brands..dont know if they can be strung at higher or not..since most rackets as i know can hold the over-suggested tension ..

    LOL..45..if,the racket survived during the stringing process,then even a single musquito land will crack the whole thing badly..if u know what i mean..Man,tensions r not just numbers to play with..besides,why not 99lbs?
