    Hi All,
    This is my first post. I want to know maximum string tension for high end version of yonex (arc10, z slash, etc). Is it safe to string it above the recomended tension (that usually printed on the shaft / cone) ?. Is there any way to know the max tension (not just recommended tension ) ?.

    Lots of people had commented on the weak MP99 frame but I haven't had much problems when strung constantly above 26lbs. I think the stringer plays a huge role and being careful not to clash or mishit much will also make a big difference.

    I strung an Arc 10 to 31, a Z slash to 30.5:D:D and a mp99 to 28.5 all bg80 all still in perfect shape and no cracks. If you need any string info on yonex rackets pm me as i know a top stringer.

    Most yonex high end rackets can survive 30lbs unless they're the ancient ones like original carbonexs etc. :)

    I am sure that 24lbs will be no problem, again a good racket would be able to withstand 30lbs
