    Hi, Im using a nanospeed 9900 at the moment but im not sure about what string tension (or string type) i should use.:confused: I feel that my racquet strings slightly lack power, and i could tell cos my friend had the same racquet but i could smash alot faster and clear with less effort when using his. Could someone reccomend an ideal string tension for this racquet and string type if possible? thanks! :eek:

    damn me...... i must be hungry that time.
    i mean what is your friend using, string and tension?

    bg65@24lbs :eek:
    dont get angry, string use by old man.

    for bg65, this string will loose tension very fast. to fully utilize this string, pre-stretch and string it to minimum 26-28lbs.

    yeah i absolutely hate the strings i have now haha.

    i realised it lost tension after the first 2 days :(

    i cant remember what strings my friend had think it was one of the nanogy, not sure about the tension but must have been pretty high ^^I think im gonna cut these ones and was considering either bg 80 or nbg 95 (we dont get 98 here) not sure about what tension though if i were to get one of them? :eek:

    Instead of asking us, your best bet is asking your friend: what string and tension. And maybe even which stringer...

    ic, too bad...

    since you play feathers, bg80 at 22x24 lbs would be a good start, and still be within your racket's warranty

    BG65Ti aren't highly recomended, you probably should try BG80 @ 24lbs and see how it goes.

    BG-65 Ti's ideal tension is around 33 lbs . . .

    my BG80 is strung at 21lbs, so if I have to restring it to 24lbs, do i purchase new strings or the old ones can be reuse?
    Sorry for such a noob question~:)

    only you have the ability to use 33lbs of tension :) with BG65ti, 33lbs is just unreal for me, and for most players.:)

    Basically unless you are Pete, or a Thomas Laybourn, don't use 33lbs+ :D out of interest what is the highest tension you have ever used ?:confused:
