    19lbs tension?
    did you ask for it to be strung at that, or have the strings just lost their tension?

    I think that is right because his other racket is at 21lbs.

    it just seems a bit low, considering that kingmario actually plays quite a lot of badminton.

    maybe he like to play with power and can't afford to break strings as often as us.

    Only the Armortec series and the MP88 comes in 4U.

    The arcsaber series and the nanospeed series only come in 3U and 2U.

    So.. I hope you meant "3U" instead of "4U".. otherwise they'd be fake racquets.
