    Okay, I know what went wrong. The lower shoulder supports get to be bang on between the 12th and 13th grommets. Just strung the X2 Gold with BG-65 Ti to 34 lbs X 37.4 lbs. The shape looks great!

    btw.. Had some chat with the stringers and players @ Swedish International.. The players who didn't ask for a specific tension got 31x33 lbs :-)

    So that could be considered "normal" tension anno 2009

    I think it'd be interesting to see what different stringers thought was a "normal tension" and compare them.

    Successfully strung up X2 Gold to 36 lbs X 38 lbs with NGY-95. The frame is just slightly short.

    10% + on the cross does not seem to work too well with regular six-point suspension machines. If we take 31 lbs X 33 lbs as the standard and work up to 36 lbs, the cross should be 6.45% + or 38.3 lbs.

    Oh wow, that's awesome. Do you have any intentions to go higher? If so, any predictions as to the fate of the racket?

    In our progressive nature with our quest for better everything, where do you expect this to end? Although equipment is getting better there is surely a limit of what rackets will be able to take. At this rate it seems your jumping a pound or two each year at least, and at this rate sooner or later you'll be at 40+lbs.

    now it is not the racket but the string limit.

    40 seems like a nice round number.

    yea at 40+ youll probably have to use some deep sea fishing line. Probably going to be your only option and since you're heading there anyways, might as well start using it now to get used to it :P

    Glad to see we both came to the same conclusion! My 30x32 produced the much nicer frame shape than with the 10% rule! Performed awesome on sat and didn't break

    Nah no need, my brother did a 38x40 with the bg 70 pro unfortunately that string even at breakneck tensions still feels like it should go higher, I wonder if a shop would be willing to string 40+ LOL I'd like to see a turbo version of that!

    hmmm i wud have thort after playing with feathers it will become difficult to play with nylons agen. thing is with feathers the harder you hit them the better they respond. but nylons you get to a stage wer the nylon folds in if you actually smash them past 170-180k?

    cant really play with nylons anymore as they obviously fly ridiculously after a smash now.

    What racket? What stringing machine? Also, what did it play like?
