I wanna ask about string tension.. I have a prokennex racket 727 ( it just cost me $30 )

personally i think that the tension of the racket depends on the person.
For first timers in badminton probably 20lb would be a good starting location to help then generate some power from the strings ( elastic ).
For players that are intermediate ( or around that ) it may be good to go 22-24lb if your racket can handle it ( because for some people they dont want to blow up their racket from high tension and from what i know, most rackets should hand 24lb just fine)
This higher tension should give them more control, and hits should feel much "better"/"crisp" once they get used to the tension.
For the more demanding players ( not going to say advanced because not all "advanced" players use high tension :P or at least from what i have encountered) they can try stringing from 25-28 lbs. This tension is only for those that are "willing" to string it that high. Reason why it might not be too good to string that high? your grommets can crack, and a lot more strain is introduced to the racket. However, for those that dont mind the risk, the rewards are just as good . Hits should sound and feel crisp if you are hitting the shuttle correctly. Great control and power if you know how to generate it (from proper hitting of course)
Exception: In some cases i have heard some people with specific rackets absolutely say the racket is at its peak ( best ) only at higher tensions. i dont know about those though

i would say 26-28lbs for both control and smashes
i do love 28-32lbs though but when if you want to smash hard , you need to have an iron hand as well :P

I've been restringing the lower priced Yonex Nanospeed, like the NS100, NS500 and NS800 up to 25 lbs, because these factory strung racquets are not much use when you're trying to improve your skills. People who have bought these racquets were advised to have them restrung after after trying them out. Everyone of them were happier with the tighter tensions.

For me the ideal tension is depends on the person. example: if he or she feels that 23 pounds is comfortable, then that is the best tension for him or her for the time being. but you must remember, the longer you play, the stronger your arms and wrist becomes so racket tension must be increase from time to time until you reach your maximum ability.
another example is my own self. i started to play at 23pounds. from time to time i kept on playing and slowly increase tension because my arm and wrist is getting stronger and now i am playing at 30pounds. i have only 2 rackets(pity=D). 1 racket with 30pounds of yonex bg 80 power and another 1 racket with 27pounds tension. the string didn't break but i had to cut it myself because when i play at 27pounds, i cant feel the power on every stroke or backhand or smash i made so i restrung it with nano g 98 at 30pounds. 1st time i played it, i can feel the power on every stroke nothing like before. the 30lbs tension + the repulsion power of nano g 98 + its sound= its a wow feeling!
Reminder: do not change tension drastically. if you want to increase tension, perhaps you can try your friends rackets which is the tension is higher than your currently use tension.

Hi,can you please help me, Whats the Ideal String and tension of my NS9900?and can I restring it into 26lbs even if its max tension is 24lbs?please i need answer...

if you don't feel it right, then after few months, cut it and go for higher or lower depending on your preference
yes, you can string above 24 lbs
24lbs is "recommended" tension, meaning that if you go above that, your warranty would be revoked (and yeah, they can check it if you try to claim the warranty)
high end racket usually can go above 30lbs, however you needs a very experienced stringer to do this,
normal stinger usually will not dare to go above the recommended tension because they are afraid they make some mistakes and you cannot reclaim the warranty of your racket

there will be two reasons:
1st, the string is too tight which is most likely not the case because it's only 22lbs
second, what I'm afraid the most, NS9900 might be too stiff for you
you cannot bend the shaft properly when doing a shot, thus less power generated
NS9900 is one of the most stiffest racket around, it is not uncommon someone cannot use it properly
if you say NS9900 cannot generate more power than your armortec, there is nothing wrong with it
being stiffer and head lighter, NS9900 might not be able to hit harder than your AT70
if you put tighter string such as 26lbs, it would destroy your arm
higher tension means less power and more accuracy
so if you have problem in power, then I would suggest lower tension

1) can I restring it into 26lbs even if its max tension is 24lbs?
yes, although stated max 26lbs, there is always a tolerance +- 2lbs in racket tension. But your racket may be less durable after you exceed the max tension. when it gets knocked accidentally especially in doubles and also when your string breaks at the side, quickly cut the broken string or your racket frame could be broken. i experienced it my self.
2) what is the ideal tension string tension for my NS9900?
If u are a beginner you can always start at 22 or 23lbs. Increase it from time to time bcoz the longer u play, the stronger your arm and wrist becomes. or may b u can try your friends rackets who has tension range from 22 to 25lbs, then u can make a decision from there. choose a good repulsion string (normally smaller in diameter) example like yonex bg66 ultimax or nano g 98 and so forth.
hope this would help.

you should know your preference before buying a high end racket..
how about try to sell it? and go for head heavy racket such as Victor MX70? (MX70 is a medium stiff and head heavy racket like your armortec 70)
or you can try stiff head heavy racket such as Yonex VT80, armortec 900 P, or Victor MX80
