so the 1 string has 2 end so the stringer has to tie 2 knots on the racket
to secure the string.
Lately, we see more and more use of the 4 knots style stringing, using 2 string one for main and another for cross so there r 4 ends that needs to be secure and that u'll see 4 knots on the racket.
On some newer racket, Yonex actually comes with a stringing map telling you the recommended way of stringing a certain racket.

hmm from all replies, i think my racket is strung less than 10kg, if i wanted to restring to higher than that, what string do you recommend?

read the review on the equipment forumn to find out which is which
generally speaking u can't go wrong with YY
and more popular one from yy are BG65 BG80 BG85 and thier Ti series
Generally speaking BG65 is more of less the standard starting point as it offers a good durability / performance / price, so take BG65 as your refrence point then explore other choices to see which one feels the best.
some ppl will prefer thinner string like BG80 and 85 as thinner string gives a better bounce and a more "FEELING" at net. But they also breaks a lot faster if you'r a heavy smasher/slicer. And for some advanced player who used to string at higher tension like 30lb, 65 would be a very reasonable choice as it is thick enough to withstand the tension, 80 and 85 can slap rather easily in those situation.

I am one of those 30 lbs users but I prefer BG-70 Pro over BG-65. BG-65 loose a lot of tension after a week of heavy use. BTW, I use a constant-pull stringing machine. BG-70 Pro retains tension much longer and just about the same durability as BG-65.

Yonex BG-70 Pro is good for high tension and long lasting tension retention.

I checked my racket, the strings im using are the Pacific PC66, 0.66mm. Many people are using the BG series, what is the PC series aimed for?

In my experience, starting with the most durable string. (25-26lb)
1. BG65 Ti
2. Ashaway micro legend xl
4. Ashaway micro power
7. Ashaway power gut
i like to hit quite hard.. micropower and BG80 are my favourites so far.

quick question guys..does stensil ink prolong string life?
someone told me applying the ink hold the strings in postion, hence more consistant hits. (my strings don't always stay parallel after a few smashes)
my strings usually break within a month but since i started painting stensil ink onto the strings, durability has increased!! i played 3-4 times a week and i'm more of a attacking player but i haven't broken any stings in 3 months! i don't think my accuracy has increased to make contact with the shuttle in the middle of the racket face. or i could be getting weaker haha.
does anyone have a similar experience?

i remeber seeing posts says that any color added would have a negative impact on the string's life. Even the Colorful string that has been dyed from the factory would be weeker then just plain white one.
To how much does it weaken the string is probaly so tiny that u would never notice. But thats just what i remeber off the top of my head..
don't quote me on how accurate it is.

depends on the type of ink.
02-08-2006, 06:19 AM #166
lower tension strings are more durable i guess, and for higher tension strings.....
it's usually the racket that gives way before the string does lol

Mine have lasted 20 years. Ashaway Vantage 21 I think they're called.
