    Don't listen to these idiots that tell you to string it at 30+ lbs.

    The racket gets stressed every time it is strung at that tension. So every time you collide with someone you will possibly kiss your racket goodbye.

    22lbs sounds quite good for a light racket , try increasing by 10% at most if you want to experiment with different tensions.

    no one told him or even recommended to him to string at 30+ lbs (just pointing that out). i believe we (at least i was) were just showing him that rackets can be strung at a higher tension which also runs a higher risk of breaking when colliding (most of those advanced players above who strings at 30+ lbs, if u noticed their other posts, has no problem (monetary wise) to get a brand new racket(s))

    What is your usual tension? Try that first. Otherwise, try 33/36lbs

    that is called a "joke"...

    it's both humor, and a reference to "read the darn sticky's"

    now, normally I'd boast about me being such a 'people's person' and being so wise for my age...

    but I kinda have to admit the "" didn't make it to difficult for me
