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.

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.

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.
