    The normal rule , is the lower tension = more power and less control and higher tension = less power and more control.

    The racket does make a difference aswell. You may want to use a stiff/flexible racket. Or a head heavy racket for more powerful smashes.

    The tension and racket do make a diffrence:D

    Don't know what to say about the blisters though :-(

    Hope this helps!:D!:D!:D!

    not always true. with higher tension, you can hit the birdie faster provided you're good enough. i tried playing with a mp28 at 22lbs, my hits were way tooo slow although they made it to the back court. with 28 lbs. you can see the difference

    1. don't play so long.
    2. don't grip racquet (super) tight all the time.

    i had used to get blisters too for my racket, then i realized my grip was too thin, so i put another layer of grip over, felt alot better and didn't feel like i was holding onto wood anymore [if thats what your feeling]

    I agree with nosebleed, my racket is the thinnest grip, but I put an overgrip on it just so it doesnt feel like im holding a peice of woord

    Alternatively, have the grip to large, and the largeness will cuase uncomfortablity and bislters

    The stiffer is the racket , the better is the racket, for me i put at a tension of around 26-27. So stiffer rackets are more expensive.

    Is a steel racket stiff?
    Is a steel racket better?
    Is a steel racket more expensive?

    as for price, that is relative. an MP22 costs more than an AMP95.
