    no idea but i would imagine that they would use there sponsers grips, for instance lin dan probably uses a yonex towel grip because yonex sponser him.

    No, some players do not like yonex as a sponsor. They choose to have somebody like victor as there sponsor instead

    24 good for beginners? my gosh, most people in real life have said beginners should use 21 or even 20... thats why i dont string above 23... now i gotta try 23 or more.

    does tension definitions vary from place to place? like does 24 in malaysia mean 21 in denmark? like shoe sizes, US9 is different from UK9.
    or are they all the same everywhere?
    i recently string my racket in australia at 22 pounds and it feels like malaysian 20/21 pounds, might be the stringer's mistake.
