    If someone is willing to sponsor the rackets, else... too big a risk to take..

    Thanks.

    yup, he usually strung at 32-33lbs w/ bg-66
    by the way, how do you know they strung at such 33lbs?
    i already tried it, the result:
    1. play vs my opponent and heavy big lost
    2. my arm was shocking and vibrate alot at the next day i drove my motorcycle
    3. the first 30 minutes, smash was so awesome, after that my hand feels like have been hit by car crash.
    just try it, very fun IMO

    i use 23....its the best i think....i change my racquet strings like once a month....they always break cause im a hard hitter....i also think hard hitters should change their strings once a month becuase the tension is lost faster...

    Lots of people can't hit the sweet spot. So miss-hitting causes a lot of breakage. Also lots of people find the thinnest string possible, stretch it till breaking point through high tension. Since the string is already 90% broken before the shuttle is hit, there's no surprise it breaks quickly.

    If people string a very thick string at low tension like 15 lbs and able to break it quickly, perhaps then they would be more convincing as power hitters. If anyone can do that, I would be willing to bow down before him and praise him as the god of badminton.

    like what cooldoo6 said....at some shots i cant find the sweetspot so it breaks around the edges(it has happened twice).......

    but also i change becuase the tension loses out quickly...and thats bad for the racquet.... all that tension is loss by the racquet compressing....

    and sorry i made a typo...i use 24 as well not 23.....i just changed like 3 months ago........

    one way of checking if your racquet has lost its tension is by pressing your tumb of the strings(not to hard!)... see if there is a difference from when you frist strung it to now....if there's a big difference then chances are your playing at like a 22

    I think anything between 22-26 is fine for the majority of badminton players. Perhaps some girls and girly guys can't extract enough power out of 24 and above, but for most people I think it's fine.

    That's pretty funny, I would do 33lbs with bg66 for a try but if someone is willing to sponsor a racquet for me, then I will. Sifuyono why not try 15lbs as coodoo said?<-just for the heck of it

    hi there,
    i just found out fr my new stringer that he normally strings the tension a 4 to 5 lbs difference. i asked him isn't 2 lbs the normal difference and the reason given is 2 lbs may give the racket head a rounded shape. 4 lbs gives more 'power' to have a oval or pointed shape.
    he strings my AR500 22/26.
    i just use this stringer who my friend recommended.
    my previous stringer always have a 2 lbs difference.
    any comments?
