Hi all.. I'm rather new here, and I'm just wondering about my string. See, it's been pretty loose lately cause it goes out of...for a lack of better word, line. Everytime I hit a shuttle, a couple of the strings tend to bend a little or get crooked. So I figured that its time to get a new string. Thing is, I don't know what string I should use because this is my 1st time changing strings. I'll explain a little about my style, hope it helps! Well, I'm generally a power player, though I tend to use drop shots, cross net shots and all those soft hits as well. I can hit pretty hard, but I miss the shuttle most of the time By the way, I'm 16 so I'm not like, really good at it (I'm in a coaching programme currently) and I'm looking for a string that allows me to give good hard strokes, smashes, as well as drop shots (an all rounder string, then). And if possible, it should not be too expensive. Secondly, after the string, what string tension should I get? As I mentioned, I'm a pretty all rounded player with no particular habits (I'm still choosing between being a hard hitter or a front player) so I'd like a nice tension to go with it. My current string tension is fine, but I don't know what tension it is at . Maybe 20~23. But is there a more specific tension for me? And lastly, is it possible to just tighten the string instead of just changing the whole thing? And if I tighten, what tension should the string be at? I'd appreciate some help here. It will give me a clear view of my future racquet modifications. Thanks in advance. Cheers, DrkMatter.
