Discussion in 'Badminton String' started by ttktom, Oct 15, 2003.
My favourite string is Yonex BG 65 string at around tension 25-26, can last for 6 months!
bg80 - less than 2 weeks
bg65ti - 1 month
bg65 - 4+ months
string doesn't break but the tension changed overtime if you play on a regular basis, so I couldn't generate much power as I could with my newly strung racquet. So I just think that tension plays a big role in this case.
1-2 months if I use BG-85. 3 months + for BG65
Tension at 24
My 65Ti is lasting more than 4 months ( still going ) on my Nano Speed 800
I played 2x per week for 2-3 hours each session, I played with Ashaway Nano Superlight, VR Electro, Wilson K Blade all strung with BG66 at 26-27lbs.... it's already more than 6 mos and the string still looks fine. But it feels dead already... i guess i have to replace them...
I hear the BG66 dont last long. But amazing power.
Yes....I heard that too, even Yonex themself describe that they are less durable due to thinner string, but true ...better repulsion power. But somehow mine last more than 6 mos hahaha...
I wish mine would last that long -_-. Which is why I only use BG65s.
ok so we now know how long the strings last before it breaks or u change them, but how long do these strings KEEP their tension? For me:
rsl ti650 - initial 27 lbs, down to >24lbs in 3 games
bg85 - 27lbs down to >25lbs in 6 games
bg80 - 27lbs down to >26lbs in 3 games
note - all within 2 hours of a playing session...
anyone been thru the same or im having poor luck with string life here? its annoying as i've to change the way i play when i can feel that the initial tension has gone...
hi amfslash,...how did you measure the tensions post usage?...by bringing them to your stringer and ask them to measure or how?..thanks
we compared the string tension with freshly strung rackets at the shop. not super scientifically exact measurement i know, but good enough for me and my string guy...
I always wondered about how long the tension would hold on your racquet, or if it is even strung @ the proper tension that you ask for. Does anyone know if there is a proper way to test tensions on your racquet? Everyone I know just use their hands and I find that everyone has a different view on the feel of tensions. So it cannot be accurate!
Update: My NBG98 at 29lbs broke after 2 months.
Ranges anywhere from 2 weeks - 2 months. Just yesterday after restringing my AT700 (old), I mishit a smash and pop--goes the weasel. Wasted my precious NBG98. I think it was just bad luck or I screwed up the stringing job, I think I'm quite good at it. I stick with the bad luck theory. =)
how did you guys manage to break your strings?I've had a BG66 strung at 25lbs since october 2008 till now and its still strong.i wanna restring but i dont have the heart to cut the string.lol
I have only broken 3 strings in 15+ years. I usally get them restrung because the tension gets to low after x months. Saying this, I just broken my string in less 2 months. Maybe be bad grommets in the frame? BG80 at 24lbs on AS 7
i use bg66 sharp mainly..32 lbs.i have my 3 rackets strung at the same tension so i can tell whether the tension has dropped or not by compared with my other racket and listen to the sound it made after each session.surprisingly sometimes even after 6 or 7 games,it still has the same sound tune!!guess i have a good stringer.the longest was 15 games,2hr each.i always test the tension by this way.to me 32 lbs sounds like 'TINGggg',if it droped to 30 lbs,then i hear 'TENGgg'.28 lbs would soundlike 'tongg'..whenever i heard a 'tonggg' then i know its about time to say goodbye to the string.i hate it because i always right about it !!!
Thx for telling me that ..
My bg-66 sound always tong .. hehe
bg80 - 27-28lbs - 6-8wks
bg65 - 31lbs - 6-8wks .... i felt that bg65 only starts showing its true potential at 28lbs above
