"string": 22 gauge 216L stainless steel wire racket: DHS something something memo graphite that was a gift from a friend long long time ago. the dry weight is 91grams. BP=292mm i tried out the string itself on the machine. it holds up until around 25lbs and then beyond that it will start stretching (plastic deformation). it snaps pretty quickly at 30lbs. i plan to string it around 21-22lbs. i was going to order the 21 gauge but the order for the 22 gauge which i order before wasn't cancellable. so i will see how this one work out. 21 gauge should hold up higher tension. the string do not stretch at all on the WISE. when it reaches the desired tension, no more tension creeping. plucking it produce a very high tone. it will be interesting how it actually plays. this is totally unchartered territory when it comes to badminton stringing. i will try to put up a video on the process. hopefully it will be fun. i plan to string it tonight after the kids goes to bed. stay tuned.
