I'm a beginner who just bought my own racket 3 days ago. Its an Apacs Raptor Mk 1 SG..strung to 25lbs using Yonex BG66UM on a manual feed/machine pulled stringer. The Mk 1 is a 4UG2 balanced rated i think. Here are the problems/experience i faced..1) forearm clear, i need to use some effort to reach the back court2) backhand clear, i can only get to mid court at best..most of the time i presented the opponent with a net kill3) i'm having sores on my shoulder n forearm now4) i loved drop shots from back court n net play..at this combo..not much problem5) couldn't get enough power on my smash even when hitting the sweet spot..when i didn't, i can hear the "ting" sound and the shuttle limp over the netI had my racket restrung today at 23lbs using the same gb66um. Will this help or do i need to further soften the string bed? I've not tested it yet though..your opinions are much appreciated..thank you!!
