    Or we could look at it this way:
    I'm not a top player and I never will be.
    I can't swing as fast as a top player, even with all this new technology.
    I don't need a super-stiff racquet.
    I don't need super-high tension.
    I play better with lower tensions.

    I'm happy to accept that some people play better with higher tensions.
    Adapt to the fact that not everyone does.

    i agree with neil. i accept the fact that i dont necessarily need high tension strings or super stiff racket. as long as i enjoy the game and the shot are not totally sucky, i am okay with it

    Hi Kwun, I have a basic question. I couldn't find the answer in any posting. I'm sure you can help me.
    Mains is the same as? Horizontal?
    Cross = Vertical?
    or the other way around.

    when you say 20/22, is it means mains/cross?

    What about the 1st question.
    Mains = ?
    Cross = ?
    if I read from kwun post, he will string mains first then Cross.
    Which mean, mains = vertical and Cross = horizontal.
    Am I correct?

    The other way around. Main is vertical (long) and cross is horizontal (short).

    That would make your racket very round. It's not correct.

    Main > cross is not wrong nor incorrect (within 10%). Just feel different compare to main = cross or main < cross.

    It's wrong if you base it on the original shape of the racket. Going more on the main and less on the cross, assuming you string the mains first, you will have a racket that is rounder and will deviate more from the original shape than if you got 10% more on the cross.

    Didn't Kim Dong Moon do this on purpose? I think I saw a picture of his NS8k (perhaps on BC itself) that was almost circular. I usually wait 48 hrs after stringing a racket and then compare it to an empty frame - if the "aspect ratio" has been preserved, some shrinkage is fine by me.

    That's not a bad idea - "I want a stiff shaft and a classic head, and by god I'm going to have them!"
