Hi guys, this is probably a really stupid question and I think I may know the answer already but why is it that in badminton, strings follow one of only a few basic formulas? You seem to get natural gut and then multifilaments with possibly a coating and that's about it. Tennis strings are completely the opposite, you get multis, monos, poly, kevlar, zyex, natural gut, synthetic gut, loads of stuff. I have a couple of ideas as to why there is less variety in badminton strings. Firstly, certain materials poly and kevlar tend to limit power as opposed to being repulsive like normal badminton strings also, spin doesn't really play a big part in badminton so it's questionable as to whether polyester or (especially) kevlar would have any benefits anyway. My final idea is that certain technologies (zyex) are hard to scale down to badminton gauge right now. Are there any other reasons for this lack of variety and are there any badminton strings with a different composition?
