The higher your string tension, the more control you’ll have while the looser your string tension, the more power. Here are the above tension ranges again, but adjusted for power or control: Nylon/Gut: 50-60lbs (22.5-27kg) Power: 50-55lbs (22.5-25kg) Control: 56-60lbs (25.5-27kg)
Low String Tension . A low string tension would be anywhere from around 40-50lbs. There are exceptions, of course; some players even going below 40lbs! That end of the spectrum is pretty much trampoline territory and we’ll get on to that later! But let’s lay out some facts first. Stringing your racket at a low tension will give you: MORE Power

When choosing your tennis racquet of choice, much of it boils down to personal preference and ...
First, remember that tension is really a matter of personal preference. Even the pros' tensions are all over the map -- some string as low as the mid-to-high 30-lbs range, while others are as high as 70+ lbs, with most others sprinkled somewhere in the middle.
Here’s a little chart for how I would look at the recommended string tension for your tennis ...
Causes of string breakage: hard hitting, top spin, cracked grommets, cold weather and strings with a low durability rating. Chronic and frequent string breakers can experiment with Kevlar or Zyex main strings since the main strings usually break first. Blending these durable main strings with more resilient cross strings will improve playability.
A tennis string comparison tool allowing the user to design reports on string stiffness, energy return, tension loss, peak impact force, impact tension increase, dwell time, deflection, etc., for user-defined impact conditions including string tension and swing speed.
Tension Loss: All strings lose tension. Most is lost during and immediately after stringing and with your first couple of dozen hits. After that relative stability occurs, but each impact loses a fraction of a pound more tension. Higher tension loss tends to indicate faster loss also. But that is not really important.
