    Question Strings move when I smash?

    Literally moves 3-4 millimeters out of place

    Ive got a brand new racket nanospeed 2000 with BG 65 Ti string( i read dinks review and he basically said the string sucks ) and I was practicing smashing with feather shuttles

    I dont know what tension my racket is currently strung at, on the racket it is recommended to string 17-22lbs which is too low for me i prefer around 23-25

    From the review it looks like BG 80 tops them all does everyone agree on this ?

    Should I get BG 80?

    Also I really want to get it strung at 24 lbs, even though its over what the racket says will this break my racket ? any advice on this??

    Thanks peoples

    string moves. that's the way of life, it is like we need to go poop every now and then, it is kinda a pain in the.... erm... i mean inconvenient but there isn't much you can do about it.

    move it back and keep enjoying your badminton.

    BG80 @ 24lbs is a good starting choice. any racket can take 24lbs easily. the labeled tension is for Yonex to (dis)claim warranty and i wouldn't let that stop you from enjoying badminton. your racket will take 24lbs easily (do find a good stringer to string for you)

    I never had this problem with my other racket (fake AT250) strung at 25lbs with Nanogy 95

    Why do i have the problem with this racket?

    different strings have different finishes. bg65ti is quite smooth.

    new strings moves more because they haven't worn in yet.

    factory strung rackets are the worst. usually ppl cut them and restring the racket right away.

    I agree with this and strings do tend to move more when newly strung as well. I've just had my BS LYD restrung with VS850 and MX60 with NS880ZTi and they both are moving all over the place when smashing and slicing.

    You couldn't just lock it and point to the ten previous threads??

    Haven't really had enough time with it really but normally when I get a racket strung with VS850 it feels really lively - didnt get this with the NS880 and it feel a little dull on my first hit. However, have used it since and it is definately starting to grow on me. Will be using t again next week for a couple of hours so will give you more of an update then.
