    You guys are misunderstanding what he meant by Factory strung. And also he is misunderstanding what factory Strings are.

    most UK coded racquets come pre-strung.
    strange but true.
    although at some online stores like centralsports, you can ask them to restring it for you at no/little cost for the higher end racquets.

    I'm 14 and I usually string at around 28 Lbs. No problems yet. I have gone higher but I always seem to go back to 28. Next time I string, I might go higher again.

    doesnt make too much difference once you go that high, at county my one mate is ranked under 17's no.4 in the uk and he only uses 24lbs an says its perfect, another mate uses 26lbs and hes in the Bath elite players , a team comprised of potential 2012 under 21's. just what ever you find best to play with higher tension doesnt mean better always.

    Well my new rackets have been strung at 23lbs so we'll see which tension i prefer from there. Tensions a trial and error thing i suppose

    Definitely, experiment and find the tension that suits you best.

    Noppy, I think you'd be surprised. Each tension has a different feel. Once you go above 30 Lbs, you find that power increases vastly, as does control, but it's harder on your body and racket and more prone to breakages. I'm not saying it's best for everyone, you need to be able to take the punishment the tensions will dish out and be able to make the strings move - otherwise you'll have no power at all. A while a go, I tried 32 Lbs and that was good, but my strings snapped very quickly and it became rather expensive. BG65Ti seems to take abuse quite well, as does my Arc10. I might try with NBG95 at either 32 or 34 next. Also, you'll find that some rackets respond to high tensions better than others. Some feel dead at high tensions with certain strings and that ruins your net play.

    The tension people choose is personal preference. People prefer different tensions for a reason.
