Why don't you try it out and tell us ?

i will be very surprised if you can tell the difference between the two.

the difference maybe in the % distortion of racket frame,
but i wonder which one should be applied according to 10% higher on cross.
27 + 10% = 29.7 ---> 29.5 or 30??
28 + 10% = 30.8 ---> 30.5 or 31??
which one is safest?

The best way is to try both and take photos for us to examine .

if i have two same racket, one unstrung, i can examine my self and tell the result.
but unfortunately i dont have two, so from your experience which one better?
because the stringer's machine just do in incremental 0.5 lbs, some just do at 1lbs max. If possible with the machine, i'll string exactly 10% higher on cross. But it's not possible.

well i say it depends on the stringer, if its done by any of the top caliber stringers here at BC, you'll be safe...

what i meant to say is that, at that tension, you need a very good stringer (BC'fer no less!) 'coz it becomes reeeeally dangerous (frame breakagewise) as the tension goes high. it is important that the stringer really knows what he is doing otherwise, you might end up with a distorted frame.
now, as for the difference in tension (cross vs main), like what kwun said, i would also be surprised if you'd be able to tell the difference (in performance or whatever) with a .5 pound increment...peace bro!

I know! Send your racket to Master NGP and have him string it .

so the answer is: both are no problem even at 27.5x30 or 27x30???

Sorry little bit out off the topic.
Is oval racket need to be stringed main<cross?
or it can be stringed main=cross.

That's true. Especially in Indonesia. I don't know about other countries.
Here, I have found out that the stringers are learning by doing. They do not get right information/training, or at least searching a reasonable sources for reference.
most of them will string main=cross or even main>cross. So sad
