    Good luck to you. With your username, I thought you are in the seventies.

    I'm a stringer, and I've moved on from NGY95 to BG80 over 6 months ago, and now trying the BG85. Played around with the tension and found my ideal tension @ 26/28 #s, on A900P. Am a doubles player, a hard hitter and smash whenever I can. The NGY95 is too soft, can't hold the tension for too long and lack the smashing "parp". The BG85 now loses tension faster(about 5 hours of play) than the BG80(almost 20 hours) 'coz it's thinner, but excellent control. Guess I'll be going back to BG80. Have yet to try the NGY98.

    Thanks Chilli and God for the sound advice.I think I will try BG 80 at 24 cross and 23 main or 25 cross and 24 main.Which tension is better?.....I am thinking in terms of if the tension drops after 6 months,how much would it drop by?

    I'm not that old.Just turned 30 and doing my Masters programme now.I play in a club and in university for recreational and competitive purposes.However,when I was about 10-13 years old, I used to join badminton coaching clinics and play for my Chinese school in Malaysia in Under 15 competitions.Seen many famous players turn coaches now.Was in Yang Yang coaching clinic and Zhao JianHua coaching clinics as well.Park Joo Bong,
    Rexy Mainaky,Rashid Sidek,Xiong Guobao and many more.The list goes on.....
    Seen all this players in action.I quit when I turned 15 to play basketball.Now back into badminton again.Basketball is too physical and too much body contact.At my age,I don't think I can keep up with the young players who are full of life and energy physically and mentally.Badminton is more technique,stamina,strokes,wrist power although you need a jumping ability and waist power as well.But I still can cope with that apart from the jumping because I have put on too much weight since then...80kg now compared to in my peak when I was 70kg.My height is about 182cm.

    Hey oonyz,

    I'd do it at 24/26 #s...i.e. 24 #s main and 26 #s cross. My ideal tension is at 26/28. Have fun.

    20 pounds for those who play SAVING the birdie...
    22 pounds for beginners who know how to hit.
    24 pounds for intermediate ~ advanced
    anywhere over 26 pounds i believe is just personal preference for the advanced players..

    Arc Saber 10 or Z Slash, according to the manufacturer's recommended string tension is 19 ~ 24 lbs only (except for the Arc Saber 8DX) . However, fact has shown that it can stand up to 30 lbs, even more.
    Back to the thread, most of players that I have talked with and myself as well, find the tension around 22~26 lbs will be the ideal tension. I usually strung my racket with BG 80 @ 24 lbs.

    I really prefer 28 lbs or at least 27 lbs. Does that make me advance?

    No, its just say that you are strong enough to handle the tension. But to be advance, there are many other criteris such as foot work, technique, etc etc
