    Update..

    Play Style: Offensive
    Racquet: AT700 3U ( modified to 2U )
    String: Ashaway MicroPower XL
    Tension: 30x33lbs ( thanks ae86trueno! )

    I thought I'm crazy.. going up from 28lbs to 30lbs now.. but in I totally love this.
    I get unmatched power, precision, speed.. and my game also becomes faster..
    I was warned by so many people about going up to 30lbs, and my friends thought I'm crazy.. ;).. but suprisingly, no pain in my arm at all.. it took a little bit of time to adjust from the lower tension I was using on my back-up racquet strung probably around at 19lbs now, but once I got back to it.. I love it more than nbg95 at 28lbs.

    eh jhirata, if string my at700 3ug5 to 30lbs, will the racquets break easily? cause i want to try also.. haha.
    which one better? BG80 at 30lbs or BG66 at 30lbs?
    i like control, lobbing n smashing+loud sound.

    There's a much higher chance of breakage at higher tensions.
    The racquet may break if the stringer is inexperienced. Also, if the stringer does not mount the racquet carefully, the racquet frame can either break or be warped. At high tensions, it's recommended to use HiQua String-protectors so that the grommets and the frame will not be damaged as much, and also the string will last longer. At 30lbs, the grommets will definitely be wasted up and you'll need to replace them often.

    I haven't tried any other string at this tension yet, and so far I find that defending is quite hard with this tension. At this tension.. the sound is very very loud.. it's very impressive. I can't recommend you which string to use though, because I haven't tried either one of them at this tension..
    BG66 will break very quickly so BG80 would be more suitable..

    30 lbs will break your racquet frame if it doesn't properly strung.... too risky...

    mine already doing many tension experiment and stay at 25lbs nowadays

    you arm wont hurt as you havent got to hit it so hard if your timing is good at 30lbs you barely have to touch it for full court but control will be hard, 30lbs is crazy, even most international player dont use it!!
