For giggles I tried stringing it with 28lbs of Zm62... Great control, but I can't play much with it. Very hard on the shoulder. Will drop back down to 26lbs. I think a slightly head heavier version might do me better but we shall see.

tried canti's TPro last night for a couple of minutes.
it was strung with ZM62@28lbs. it was pretty tight, even though the frequency is lower than my stringing of ZM62@27lbs on AT700.
i didn't hit too much with it. partly because we didn't have a court, and partly because i didn't want to snap his new string.
the initial feel is pretty good. good balance, fast swing, solid feel. damping seems to be rather high but maybe due to extra high tension. will have a much better feel of how it when i get mine... *cough* *cough*

Kwun, you need to get that *cough* checked.
The 3rd batch should be ready in a week or so. Thanks.

Why are you now stringing at even tension??? Always been adding 2 to 3 lbs more to the crosses for my end tension. By stringing even, don't it make the mains tighter??

there is no reason why mains and cross needs to be the same tension. they are different length and different density along the frame. experiment and see which one works the best.
starting around a year ago i started doing even tension as from my own experiment, that has the best feel.

What is your main goal when stringing?
1) most accurate tension? (If so, racket frame strength suffers)
2) best racket durability (If so, tension won't be the most accurate)
3) best playability? (If so, racket frame strength suffers)
The above stringing methods are slightly different and the differences in racket frame strength are insignificant to very minor up to 24lbs. ECP. Tension range 25-29lbs. is minor to moderately significant. However, when it's 30+lbs., can be very significant.
Also, depends on what machine you use and your stringing skill level and technique.
Panda's goal is always to string with racket durability in mind first. String performance is second.
To try to get the best racket durability, you need to try to string and keep the racket head shape as close to the original unstrung shape as possible.
On machines with weaker, lesser quality supports, a 2-3lbs. (or 10%) difference on the cross may be needed.
On machines with better supports adding to the cross is not necessary.
How do you find out? You need to string a few rackets with your set-up and compare the differences.
Panda's stringing machine has evolved quite a bit. In it's original form, a 10% difference was needed but not now.

since the frame strength is insignificant at lower tension
for example 23 lbs
If I would like to string my Tpro to a stringer that I never used before
should I go for 23/23
or should I go for like 21 main, 23 cross, or 22 main 24 cross? (which one will produce 23lbs?)

Depending on the machine, 22/24 or 23/23. Normally, if you just ask for 23lbs, the stringer will adjust accordingly (as he knows his machine and how it will deform the racket)
