Will it damage my racquet?
I have a voltric zforce 4u and am contemplating on wether or not to get it strung higher. I really want to get it strung higher at 28lbs but I'm wondering if it will damage the racket in any way. I'm also wondering if I leave a racket in my bag strung at 28lbs will it damage the racquet due to not playing with it. (Racquets such as the mx70 3u, bs09 3u and zforce 4u) lol sorry if I'm a bit confusing

what string are you using? you can always try thinner string at lower tension which will give feel of thicker strings at higher tensions

oh, I see that you use bg80p and ngb99 from another thread... how many lbs?.... perhaps zm65 at the same tension or 1-2 lbs higher would be a good try... much better repulsion and feel

Right now 26 I want to move up to 28

Can you try and answer the second part of my question or is that not possible

just do zm65 at same 26 lbs... second part question: high tension causes more problems with cracked rackets in clashes more than problems with storage

I see so stringing my 4u z-force at 28 lbs shouldn't be a problem?

Shouldn't be a problem but 4U max recommended tension is 26lbs. So you void warranty if you exceed if you care about that sort of thing!

it is not a black and white, "has problem" or "no problem"
as you increase the tension to something as high as 28lbs, it will increase the chance of racket breakage, whether from gradually weakening the frame structurally or from increasing chance of taco'ing the frame on a string breakage, and will potentially shorten the longevity of the racket.
having said that, i have seen rackets being strung at 28/30lbs for years without any problem.
the chance is yours to take

your racquet should able to hold the tension but it can be very fragile.
