ARE YOU NUTS!!!! 100lbs would deform and kill any kind of racquet if you strung it that high. That's a big NO NO!!! Plus I don't think anyone would be able to play 100lbs. 30lbs is really right already.

And I think this idea of having an equation to help explain ideal tension in concise terms is swell. Engineering student at your heels, master.
Same 25lbs is comfortable but I'm pretty sure I can go higher. But I'll stick with 25lbs for now...if it doesn't void the warranty I'll go high--26lbs--which would be later

i was being satirical, as we all know there is no "ideal" tension, much like sleep (8 hours is not for everyone). And if you've caught the gist of my quip you should know that 100lbs will rip the space time continum for being so pwnage. I wonder what WOULD happen if you had such a strong tension, i bet you'd need like a racket made of diamond and piano wire to do it.

4. ## only 25?

this is my first post so if i do anything wrong just tell me,

i play a lot of badminton... 2 hours tuesday 2 hours wednesday 2 hours thursday 2 hours saturday and 2 hours sunday, i use a nano speed 6000 (i have 2 currently strung with rally micro string at 27 tension) and i could not get the choice of shots where i wanted if i used anything less than 26 tension, im going to buy a nano speed 7700 tommorow i will be getting 28 tension and im not sure on the string... id like bg 95 but iv heard it breaks to easy so i might be changing to nano g but im unsure yet.

for beginners i would recomend 26 tension
for medium players 27 tension
for intermediate players 28 tension
and after that im unsure as i havent reached this level yet...

i get private lessons from peter higman every thursday as well

Beginners wouldn't be able to play 26lbs lol..they're shots would be all weak and out of control. I could do 26lbs but I'll do that some other day if the yonex warranty is still there lol.

welcome to the forum! your posting is fine if you ask me...

though I disagree...what's good for you isn't good for everybody...and a 2lbs difference between beginners and 'advanced' players is way too little...

as for that matter, I don't think higher tension = higher playing level

I string my rackets higher than some pro's here (I string 24-25lbs roughly, depends on the string) and beat someone who strung at 28lbs...

7. i'm gonna see if i can string my fake racket to 50 lbs. XD but i need to borrow a machine and a stringer first!

8. by beginner i meant some one who can hit a shuttle fairly consistantly but doesent have a wide range of shots, and it att depends on the beginner, some people are naturally ok when they start and others are just hopeless... another thing is how you begin, i started to play (properly) at david lloyds and i got private lessons from the start so i never had to worry about how i played because the feed was always perfect which gave me an imediate advantage... after about 5/6 ptivate lessons i decided to get a new racket so i got the nano speed 6000 after trying a couple out. i asked peter what string and what tension i should get and he said rally micro 27 tension which i have had a lot of sets of (expensive lol) but now i want to change, im debating weather or not to get the nano g string with 28 tension, i am definatly getting 28 tension but the string makes such a difference.

i can understand people who cant hit it could be known as beginners but to be a beginner badminton player you have to atleast have a slight bit of consistancy.

9. [QUOTE=jerby]though I disagree...what's good for you isn't good for everybody...and a 2lbs difference between beginners and 'advanced' players is way too little...

thats where the argument is, i said intermediate because advanced is the higher class on a tuesdays at david lloyds which is to advanced for me right now, and if you read the post i posted before this quote i say it differently,

higher tension means the soft spot (the spot where you will achieve maximun power) is smaller but the power when you hit there is greater, thats why the top players get 32 tension because they are very consistant at hitting right in the soft spot, i tested the nano speed 7700 and it was strung with nano g string at 32 tensiona dn i managed to hit 1 out of 5 shots well.

10. you might wanna add a [/quote] at the end of my writitng, but it's ok.

now you must see...95% of the forum has no clue who david Illoyds is, or how good his classes are (the difficulty of the inetrnet) or how you define beginners/intermediates/advanced...

also, you must see not everybody likes high-tensions...it's not a question of consistency, or power, or control...it's just a personal preference...

I play at 24-25lbs because I don't want to struggle with my racket when I hit I don't want to think about string tensions, power, control and all that blabla when I play...Therefore I like my "larger sweetspot" at 25lbs (11,5kg is closer to 25 than 24 I guess)

Does that make me a beginner? Trust me, I am not
and to you personally, have you ever tried playing with 24-25lbs? or just picked up your new racket and said "yeah sure, make it 27lbs"?

11. davidlloyds is a professional health club which costs £60.00 a month to join.

my coach is peter higman one of the 5 international coaches (the top coaches in the world)

and yes i have tried with 22 tension (factory strung) and i couldnt get thew same distance from my shot as usual,

im not saying your a beginner i said what i would recommend for a beginner based on my own expirence. starting with a higher tension gives the advantage of making a player more consistant at using the soft spot because when the hit a shuttle in the soft spot they will see how much more power they recieve.

ok, maybe mroe people now peter then, sorry

still, you're recommending everybody what you like best...(27lbs, plus or minus 1 lbs...peanuts). To me, that's like recommending shoe size 12UK...because the bigger surface area offers more grip.

13. i only said it was wat i recomended and wat i have been told, i put how i played so some one could work out what would be the ideal tension so to me the ideal tension is clearly different to every one.

14. I wana restring my Gosen Grapower 880TI

Among these 3 strings , which 1 would u guys recommend?

1. Yonex BG-66
2. Yonex BG-80
3. Gosen Pro 66

Whats the ideal tension for me? I'm looking for more smashing power.

I'm just an average player, i don't have a strong arm/wrist as i've fractured my elbow once n wrist twice before Maybe 22-24lbs ? Whats the recommended proportion for cross/main? X times X ?

And btw what are the prices for these strings ?

15. BG 66 all the way. Tension 25 all.

16. agreed with bro vagpwner.....BG 66 all the way. Tension 25 all!!

Recently, I tested the BG65 @26LBS X 26LBS, the feeling was quite the same as BG66 at 25LBS X 25LBS...

Thanks.
