    Will that distort the racquet? But thanks anyway.
    No biggie, don't worry. Just that 23x25 is a bit better.

    Well, if you're a stickler for detail like PeteLSD, ideally, it should be 23 x 25.3.

    On any racket, you should follow the "10% rule". Go 10% higher tension on the crosses to try and retain the original shape of the racket.

    So, if you string the main at 25.0lbs. Then 10% great on the cross would be 27.5lbs.

    I'm not sure I agree with you on this

    So ???

    I have to string my new racquet for tomorrow So I'd like to have opinions now if possible ...

    Of course I could try stringing it and compare the strung frame with the unstrung frame. Thus I would see if These 10 % are useful or not.
    I'll let you know.

    Why? I'm using Yonex's rule of 10%. I think it's valid.

    Allright. I'm gonna use this rule.

    Since you succeed in stringing your Cab right with this method I think It is what I got to do.

    Thanks Dan

    I've strung my Cabs from a low of 24.5/27.0lbs. to a high of 29/32lbs. and absolutely no problems.

    I've done it, And I didn't notice any distortion. I directly compare the unstrung with the strung racquet.

    It seems to be good.
    I'll try it tomorrow at my tourney

    Thanks for all your advices
