Thread Name: String weight chart??
Subject: RE: String weight chart??
Both look pretty good too - only thing with both of them, it's never occurred to me to think much about the tension of strings in numerical terms. Obviously, too high tension and the strings (or the instrument...) would break, too low and the stings would buzz.

Any way of checking out in advance what the appropriate tensions for particular strings might be? Other than trial and error. (Maybe that's somewhere in one of those links, but I couldn't spot it.)
