Exclamation Stringing Old Racquets- Dunlop Max 200g

I string racquets and recently someone asked me to string their Dunlop Max 200g. I have only been stringing for a couple years and mostly for my teammates on my college team. Is the tension that you string old racquets at less than what you string modern racquets with? Does anyone have a tension range for what this should be strung at? Thanks. Its a 27 inches, and was the original Max 200g that was used in the 80s by Graf and McEnroe.

Use a soft string, no more tan 50 LBS.These frames were not designed for high tension. You do have the pattern?

Thanks, yes I do. The racket is 18x20, and luckily the strings are mostly still on it because it pattern is rather strange, and is posted nowhere online that I could find.

The pattern is a hold over from wood racket days. I had a player who dropped the outside mains as he felt it gave him better pop.

So would you recommend 46 with a syn. gut? I know absolutely nothing about this man. He just dropped of the racquet and asked me to string it.

That is a good start. If he has not tried a multi in this frame, I would suggest one in 17g to him.
