Babolat Pure Drive raquet and just changed from 27 to 26 kg

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Wilson Hyper Hammer 4.0, not sure about the strings.

Can anyone explain to me the difference between strings and tensions, and what some good brands of string to get are?

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

generally the lower the tension, the greater the power.

for strings- the lower the number the greater the longevity but supposedly less feel.

I'm using Wilson Extreme Spin 15L- just because I break alot of strings.
