    Hi Thomas,
    I noticed that you and Peter were using Tactic rackets during the Dutch Open.
    Which racket models are both of you using?
    And what strings and tension?
    Do you always use the same strings and tension?
    Or do you change the strings or tension when you go to different regions of the world to play?

    Hi Wukong

    Yes it is true that Peter and I play with the brand Tactic and we use Tactic rackets both of us. Peter plays with Muscle Striker 98 and i use Amortic 700.

    Both of us play with Yonex BG80 strings. The tension is very difficult to talk about because every machine is different. But usually i play with 33-35 pounds and Peter plays with 30-32 pounds.

    Always keep in mind that is up to you what is good for you, and not what other players play with.....

    We dont change the tension when we travel, but sometimes the tension can get softer when it is very hot, so we always leave some of our rackets at our hotel when playing a tournament so they dont get out in the hot stadium or practise hall.


    I hope that answers your question.

    Thomas
