    Initially I'll test ZF2 at factory tension, but this time re-string at 25lbs and see how it plays.

    By the way, Tago was stringing his Nanoray Z Speeds at 35lbs mains and 38lbs crosses at All Englands. Thank goodness I wasn't stringing those.

    Wish I knew what the point of that was. There must be a point where there's so little elasticity left in them they must take on a characteristics and feel completely foreign to me. I can handle .70 strings at 28-30lbs but anything over that is pointless for my very mediocre abilities. All it equals is pain.

    I can imagine these high tensions are crucial in terms of net control. A very high tension may help a lot at that level. 38lbs sound really high and yeah, he surely gets provided with more than enough rackets. All he has to take care off is that he eventually might loose a point due to string snapping. It is quite easy to break the string at that tension and if the string snaps even the frame might crack. Basically the string will snap the moment you have an off center hit.

    Tested 33lbs with UM66 myself and it was just fine. Incredible touch at the net makes it a joy to aim for the tape and smashes had a characteristic thunder sound with pin point accuracy. Still, I prefer BG80 29lbs tension because durability and reliability is important. Imho more than 32lbs is not really needed, even at semi-pro or even pro level. This is personal preference though.

    If I would use that kind of tension, there will be one reason.
    That is for the performance after tension drop.
    Bg66um drop tension very fast.
    At pro's power, bg66um might drop 15% tension in only a few shots.
    To string 15% more than ideal tension, and wait for it drop.
    The result is a consistent high tension.
    I think this is why ppl using bg66um tend to use higher & higher tension.
    Tension is never enough for BG66um. HaHa

    Thanks for clarifying that. As you imply, Tago is not mediocre.

    So tension is proportionate to mediocrity? I had no idea my worth and abilities were intrinsically linked to the tension of my badminton strings. Thanks for clarifying that.

    Missed my point. Please re-read. I'm pretty sure at least 95% of people would not have interpreted my comments like you have.

    The ZFII does not 'require' higher tensions. If anything, if it's a more rigid structure than your current go-to racket, you may need lower tensions to replicate the feel and avoid injury.

    Stick with what you know, at least initially.
    Thank you for your advice

    Btw, for those who just bought your VTZF2 from Japan, how many of you have to pay the duty fee or custom fee or tva stuff?

    I surveyed the same non-people that you did, and 95% of them agree that you have the social skills of an autistic hamster.

    My VZF II have pieces of metal or wood placed under the string at 12 o clock position. Is that normal?
