    Default Tension and sweetspot?

    Hey everyone,

    I just recently strung my mp99 @ 26 lbs with bg80.

    My question is:

    With a higher tension, does the sweetspot change?

    I played several times and finally realized that I felt more power and accuracy if I hit near the top of the frame rather than the center sweetspot of the mp99.

    Does anyone find this is true?

    Higher tension = smaller sweet spot.

    Higher tension = better control (as string bed not as bouncy).

    And if you are a strong player, high tension can actually give you more power, this is true if you swing fast, use a stiff racquet and consistently hit the sweet spot. The shots coming out are explosive !!!

    However, stiff racquet + high tension normally equate to problems with elbow or shoulders if your technique is not there.

    Different stringing styles tend to move the sweetspot... changing tensions will tend to affect the size of the sweetspot.
