    You can have 26x26lbs or 25x27lbs. Is the racket oval or iso?

    They are both 26lbs average but i would pick 25x27lbs because the 2lbs tension difference keeps the frame shape in it's original position.

    example :25x27 for cross strining should lower the tension at starting and at ending.

    I find that for stringing in HK, it is best to tell them the exact stringing tension for the main and cross strings. ie. 25x27lbs... because each shop string differently, some will string it at 25x27, some will string 24x26.

    Had my new arc10 strung at 27/29#s with NGY95 one string, and it's perfect. Nice sound and lots of power. Was told the Arc10 needs >26#s to unleash. So far so good.

    With one string, IMO, the tension should be upped by 2#s when starting the crosses, 'cuz the mains will now be bumped up by the weaving. Always works for me..keeping the racquet shape normal.
