    I don't know about MP88. I strung my NS7000 with Gosen Pro66, 28LBS Cross and 26LBS Main. All the 11 players in our team loved the racket and the tension strung.

    Try it at 28 Cross and 26 Main, you will like it.

    Why Gosen Pro66 instead of BG66? Gosen Pro66 is certainly much durable.

    Thanks.

    Hey! My ns7000 uses bg66, but tension-wise, perhaps 25lbs. I'll try that tension someday.

    i hv mine on 24 rite now with bg65 and im quite happy with it
    but i'd say for a more general view 21-23 is the best as i've been using tht for the last few years until recently a few months back switch to 24 and now enjoy it...
    btw...i dunno if its been discussed but will bg65 lose tension coz if it does then mayb u guys shld state the string used as well and i need advice on it as well coz im planning to change to a different string on my nxt restring probably bg66,85 or the ti series so i need to know if i still string it back at 24 or a lil lower like 22 or 23?

    Be careful though! Make sure that the stringing machine your stringer is using is properly calibrated. Some manual stringing at 29LBS is only equivalent to those strung by electronic machines at 24LBS.

    The stringer at Gala Sports at Queesway Shopping Centre did a good job. Though he is only having 5 years of stringing experience, with the aid of the approx. > S$13K machine, you will be pleased with the string done by him.

    Thanks.

    that is why some people have racket breakage at high tension while some don't. It depends on quality of techniques, type of stringing machine, calibration accuracy and other variables . Some people may walk around saying they strung their rackets at 30 lbs may not REALLY be at 30 lbs, it's all in their heads because u never know what the stringer did to your racket. I know a dozen ways to string a racket at 30 lbs and each will feel differently.

    Right now I can only go for 23 x 25 although I prefer higher tension. This is because I rely mostly on smashes and I couldn't get better smashes with higher tension although control, net drops, trick shots are much easier with higher tension.

    An expensive machine and experience is essential, BUT IMO when it gets up to stringing at extreme tension (28 lbs +) u must not forget that a stringer must have the confidence that he can get the job done.

    I found another stringer who also owns the sports shop. He had been stringing badminton and tennis rackets since age of 12. He is now 32 years old, and plays badminton 5 days/week.

    Before he string my racket, he told me that if he break it, he will replace it of the same model from his shop...

    I did not hesitate, Cross 28 Main 26..., I told him.

    Thanks.

    of course, we all know that there is no answer. but most ppl won't be happy with that answer, cuz we effectively didn't answer their question.

    of course, we know nothing is absolute. but how about we redefine "ideal"?

    if the question is "what is the ideal tension" without any other information, then we can say, well, "given what we have been told by you" (ie. very little), the ideal tension is:....

    so what is the property of "ideal" in that situation? the ideal in the uninformed situation will be "the most typical", or "the tension that most ppl would likely be accustomed to". in other words, probably bang in the middle, or the median tension.

    given this definition of "ideal", i'd vote for a tension of 22-23lbs. even beginners should be able to hit decent shots with 23lbs. and the hard hitter will not find 23lbs to be too weak a tension.

    so what do everybody else think?
    This question is like asking F1 racing car drivers what is the ideal tyre pressure to run in the tyres

    Anyone who follows motor racing knows that tyre pressure is crucial to the way a tyre performs.

    In the same way, string tension also affects the way a racket performs.

    Tyre pressures vary according to track conditions, fuel load, setup of the car, driving style and dozens of other environmental and physical factors.

    String tensions are the same, they vary according to the way the racket has been strung, the material of the string, the ability of the string to maintain its preset tension, physical damage, temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure etc...

    Q: What is the ideal tension??

    A: I'll give you the ideal tension if you give me the ideal physical and
    environmental conditions.

    you are absolutely correct. and i 100% agree with you. but you are also missing the point of the thread:

    i am not looking for an exact answer, but instead the number that is the most typical. to use your example, my car's manual didn't ask me to adjust the tire pressure in my car daily by measuring the temperate, humidity and atmopheric pressure. instead it just say: 32psi.

    they know that the general public are not interested in the exact number, but a best approximate that will handle most typical driving situations.

    i recently bought a pro-ace racket because i was told it can hold a 32lb tension and have it strung at 27x29. Following are some observations:
    1) smashes are more powerful, easier to drive clears
    2) better controls
    3) better sound
    4) better feel for arms

    I would say plus/minus 26lb should be good.

    I prefer Gosen Pro 66. But... he does not have any. I had tried Pacific 0.66 string, and it is quite durable.

    So... I will have to bear with Pacific 0.66 for the time being...

    Thanks.
