    this is a tough one to answer. this is what I think:

    - for general public players, I think 22-24 lbs range should be good. this will "force" them to use / learn correct technique to do nice clears, regardless how muscular they are.

    - for players who have decent technique, should be 26-28 lbs. this will again "force" them to remember the use of correct technique all the time. at the mean time, start to have more "control" of the play.

    - for pros, well, we all know the answers.

    of course, we need to note that higher tension player doesn't really mean that he / she is always good either. remember one of the pro player uses only 24 lbs.

    at the end of the day, it's like what I always tell my customers: it's an operator issue!

    your racquet should be head light and at a low tension. For a beginner around 18-20lbs

    Here's my view of ideal tension range ;

    Beginners 25-27lbs
    Intermediates 27- 29lbs
    Advance 30lbs+

    THat is the only way to learn the correct technique. rewarding if they get it perfect, and disastrous if you get it wrong. , then once they get the technique mastered (intermediate) then they can move on to slightly higher tension to improve their accuracy of their smashes

    To me, it's more like:

    Beginner: 18-20 lbs
    Intermediate: 20-22 lbs
    Advanced: 22-24lbs
    Professional: 26lbs-35lbs

    Resist the temptation and *** appeal to go high tension! It does not benefit at all!

    Default Yonex !!!

    I need help here.If I am using a Yonex Nanospeed 200 racquet.What tension should I have it strung to?.....My friend who does stringing service is suggesting stringing it at 24lbs or 25lbs with Nanogy 95.However upon looking at the stringing range for Nanospeed 200 it says 17lbs-22lbs.Please advice whether I can string it at 24 or 25 when it says 17-22.

    My friend has a nanospeed 200 and he has his strung to 30lbs. I strung my brothers one to 25lbs with bg65ti with no problems. I wouldn't go over 27lbs though just to be safe. Regarding the stringing range I think all yonexs are rated log as they might not need the power but my pals on the Ireland U17 Team have Yonex rackets strung to 29-31lbs some even more.

    Default Yonex !!!

    Thanks for the advice and comment God.I am confused because I have 2 options....1)BG 80 and 2) NBG 95.My friend who does the stringing suggested NBG 95 as I wanted more durability in my strings.But looking at the comments and reviews in Sir DinkALot's chart,clearly BG 80 is the preferred choice.Since I am using a Nanospeed 200 only, would it be worth it to put on NBG95 OR BG 80 on an average racquet like Nanospeed 200.Bear in mind,I consider myself an intermediate player.When I first purchased my racquet,I have been using factory strings ever since up until now when I couldn't take it anymore since it gives me a very uncomfortable feeling especially when the strings move after each smash or shot.Please advice.

    Any chance of using bg65ti as they are good for hard hitters and last a while too.
