And still only safe up to a measly 26lbs.. LMAO..

For a 4U spec unit 26lbs is considered good. The more common 3U with SG should be higher than that!
Those 3U units without the SG logo are normally rated at 25lbs only... hence the difference.
Now maybe someone's arse should stop laughing.

They still own most of the badminton racquet market undoubtedly, which means if they encourage high stringing tension then more racquets will come back at them. Most customers don't understand how the maximum warranted tension has little to nothing to do with the actual "clashing impact survivability strength" of the racquet

4U @ 26 for this one is simply because it is the VT80, has nothing to with does or does not have a SG mark ...
SG mark is for the Japanese market only as well so obviously you won't find it on other codes?

The thing is, other makers racket frame are much sturdy compared to YY and they could recommend higher tolerable tension. Even that most if not all makers beside YY were not susceptible with string caving into the frame/sunken grommet problems which is why the higher tension rating is all about.
Over at my place, the badminton community are well informed/educated that a clashed rackets is not warranted by the manufacturer.
