tension - michael jordan.
yes, I'm with Mr. Mike at 23lbs. I guess the more powerful the person is, the higher tension they will use. Easier control.

For me i started using 20lbs when i was starting out in this wonderfull game . Now 14 years on i use 25lbs for doubles and 23lbs for singles all with bg66 . This way i still can compete with people 20 yrs. younger.
P.S. I am still confused how people say the lower the tension the more power.
For me the the higher the tension more power .What i notice is lower the tension larger sweetspot where as higher the tension smaller sweet spot, but wow does it fill good when you whack it in the middle with higher tension.
Any how thats me

The best players use higher tension strings not b/c they are stronger but b/c thier timing is better. Higher tension strings allow for greater control/power if the timing is there. The sweet spot is smaller with higher tension strings. A coach at my club Ardy Wiranata uses strings set at 30 lbs. Also for yonex to maintain the isometric head shape the vertical/horizontal strings have to be 2 lbs apart in tension. This is what i've been told and im just sharing. btw i string my MP 33s at 25, 27 and love it

What raquets allow you to have a better tension? My 3u rackets only give me 20-25
01-25-2005, 07:13 PM #94
I string my rackets no lower than 25 lbs.
I have one racket that is at 32 lbs. at the moment
Usually I'll use something in the 26-28 range.
I have a few friends that play regularly with 30.

The problem with stringing at a high tension is, the racquet will change shape.... No?

Poor stringing methods will warp your racket.
Imitation rackets often are not able to hold high tensions.
For example. My friend bought an Armortec 800 from a US Yonex retailer and strings that racket at 27-28 lbs, and has no problems with warping or anything in that matter. We also tried stringing an Armortec 800 which was bought from the Phillipines (imitation racket) and it has trouble holding more than 23 lbs---It begins to warp.

Well, i strung my mp88 at around 21-22lbs. Considering u guys using numbers like >25 scares me. The salesperson told me that i shouldn't string it too tight. Is that guy cheating me?

Your stringer is also afraid that the racket may break while he is stringing it. Which of course, I think, is natural.
Check out the Progressive Stringing method in the stringing techniques section. Works pretty well for high tensions.

The best tension is always the one you are most comfortable with and which suites your own individual style of play. There will never be an universally ideal tension. Don't forget, we are human.

Ok then, what should be the ideal tension for mp88, and ns7000?
