Badminton String Tension Suggestion
So i strung my racquet with a Bg66 at 24lbs, and i felt that the feel and tension had lost after 3-4weeks.
So I wanna try the Ashaway Zymax 65. What tension should i string it at to get a constant 24lbs from then on after the tension had set in?
I dont get to string racquets very often as a junior player.. So i intend to get it right this time :/.

there is not right or wrong tension, but one that you play best with. at the same time, strings drop in tension at different rate, you must figure out how much tension is there for each string until it settles. and even when it settles, tension lost will continue, but just at a very small increment. my approximate gauge is probably to string it 2lbs higher, so that when it completely settles, it will be at your desired tension.
if you play pretty often, then losing tension after 3-4 weeks is normal.

Oops, i meant a Bg66UM. Its tension decreased quite a bit. I remembered the first time playing with it at 24lbs, simply wonderful.
I thought maybe a Ashaway Zymax65 will actually prevent such extensive tension loss, therefore i thought of stringing at 25lbs :/.
There is no half pounds right?

Well there's factors to strings for example plastics or feathers , temperature and such, certain string as well, and as in half pounds like 25.5? I'm pretty sure you could string the mains and the cross with different values with half as well
