Bg80/85 at 24lbs on my Armortec 700 3U.
Repulsion is good, smashing sound and feel is GREAT!! It feels really good when you smash. Control is good, I can place my shots where i want it to be 99% of the time.

Broke my BG80 string on ns9900, strung at 29#s, after 8 hours of playing, thru mis-hitting near the top. Restrung with the same BG80 @ 30#s, and my elbow started hurting after playing an hour. Have played for almost 4 hours now, and the elbow's not hurting anymore. Guess the tension dropped to my ideal tension of about 26-27#s. Nice racquet...giving up my AT700 and Arc10.

Gosen pro 70 @ 24lbs on Sotx woven 13
BG-80 @ 24lbs (probably ~22lbs now) on Yang Yang nanosensation 60
The Pro 70 and BG 80 are about the same. Good grip - great for slice drop shots. Both are durable. But the BG80 is a bit more repulsive.

My MP-100 was usually strung at 23lbs. On the 2nd game after it was re-strung, the frame broke. I think the stringer screwed up (not my usual stringer since I was in a hurry that time). Then I bought Ti-10, strung at 22lbs. Surprisingly I feel much more comfortable playing at 22lbs. So 22lbs is my ideal tension for now

NOTICE: this thread is about the IDEAL TENSION FOR EVERYBODY, not your ideal tension...

Chill, dude. Lots of people in this thread posted about their ideal tension. That's unavoidable, since there's no one size that fits all
06-27-2009, 02:01 AM #333
there's no such thing as EVERYBODY's ideal tension from a person opinion. So re-notice for yourself.
my ideal tension is around 27 at least. When I had the AT700 i got the best smash, drop, backhand clear, backhand drive, and back smash results when it's 30lb. But unfortunately I broke my racquet.
However, when it's too lower, for me the power is not there.
and one more thing to maxphi I thought at700 it was 4U not 3U
I might be wrong, I'll have to double check on it.

I don't know yet for me. I got an Arc10 and I stringed it to 24lbs with BG80. When I tested it, I dunno, it seems that the fake Arc10 is better at smashing and all that. Probably I have to string mine around 27lbs. I think that the ideal tension is around 23-27 lbs.

I have finally found the answer !
Why racquet crushed when mis-hit, hit by other racquet. First poor racquet quality, second stringing pound. Made in Japan Yonex is quite recommended in quality but dont over ladden it with high tension like 28-30lb. Of course they can handle it, this is for the pro's who trained very well to handle it, they have very strong wrist and arm. 23-25lb. is recommended by most Yonex and other racquet. You think stringing at 28-30lb makes you play like LEE CHO.. WAI, think again. To be honest some feel very proud when saying they string at 30lb. Who says stringing below 25lb play worse than those who string it at 28 and above? Non-sense !
String between 28-30lb will:-
pressure your racquet to crush when mis-hit or being hit
make you change your string often, string will break often
not make you play like LEE CH.. WAI or you think better
String between 23-25lb:-
you use lesser strenght to hit the shuttle to the far base line
your shuttle flies faster using the same strength as one who string at 30lb
your racquet break lesser, last longer for investing in high quality racquet
bottomline: those who use 23lb does not make you girlish, you play at 30 pound does not make superior.
A point of my view and to share.

I really dislike those guys who always think themselves are superior when they tell others they string their rackets with 30lbs or something..
For myself, I hold firm belief that 23lbs to 25lbs are enough for me.
My Arc 10 is BG70pro with 23lbs
AT900power BG70pro with 24lbs
NS9000X BG80 with 23lbs
and AT900Technique is NBG98 with 23lbs

It is very difficult to say what an ideal tension is. Maybe it is better to find a suitable tension for the player, using his preferred racquet. A very important factor affecting playability, common to all players with their racquets and a variety of tensions, is the type of shuttle used. Shuttles that are of low quality, plastic shuttles, and shuttles that cannot reach a distance of 12.4-12.9 m should use lower tensions. Only using the highest quality feather shuttles will very high tensions play at their best, irrespective of racquet quality and string quality, the latter two contributing significantly less than a high quality feather shuttle.

in indonesian players who join the club, use 25lbs-27lbs.
string is not a problem, but find how to hitter shuttecoks on the right timming.
if you hit the right timming, your hitter sound must be heared good, and you don't need much power to hit back to back[loop]
remember do not need much power to hit back to back if your hit on the right timming..
second you must find your own style...how you to enjoy hit the shuttlecocks...
third you must learn how to more swing your racket...
dont just look lin dan smash style video and you want copy on you...is this useless..
badminton don't need much theory, just do it.
