What she says is true.
Manuals generally are 2 lbs less than ECP.
Your racket was probably previously strung manually and she just wanted to make sure to give you a tension that is the same with no surprises.

You have to set your own expectation of your level of play.
You also have to know who is the regular stringer. Also in the long run and not changing their staff regularly.
You also need to test out a few stringers and test your preferred tension.
Go explore and you will find one. Yoda.

My racket was initially manual-strung is correct..
So.. You're saying there are 2 types of tensions? One, is manually tensioned and 2nd is ECP-ly tensioned..,
Please forgive my stupidity/ignorance because this is the 1st time i hear this. (from the lady)
So.. From my understanding, let's say, for example, there are 2 exact same rackets strung with 22lbs,
the only difference is 1 is manually and the other is by ECP..
2 similar rackets with the same tension but actually are not exactly the same because the way it were strung..?
Emmm.. If it's ok with you, could you elaborate more? Or perhaps it would be a great pleasure if someone/anyone be kind enough to direct me to any links which can explain more on this matter..
Appreciate the help and thank you..

Pull a piece of chewing gum apart and stop your hands suddenly - the strand of gum sags in the middle; the same thing happens with strings in a manual machine.

I have the feeling that my new ArcSaber FB isn't strung very well. I notice how the strings shifts a bit so that it's no longer straight after playing a game. I'm not sure if that properly conveys the issue that I'm facing. My Adidas Duoforce's strings stays more consistent regardless of the number of games that I play. Is this normal?

If the string shifts a bit after a few games, it is still alright. However, if it shifts everytime you hit the shuttle, i recommend that you find a new stringer. What strings are you using anyway?

New strings will move around more than old strings since they havn't had time to notch into each other, and lower tensions will be more so. Perfectly normal, just straighten them out after each point, especially if you slice a lot.

Are the stringbed frequencies similar, or is the FB lower... because it's been more used and strung longer while ago.

Zymax strings don't notch so easily ime. Most likely his FB has lost some tension with playtime so it'll move more easily.
