    Unless you are using a very high tension (above 35) there is nothing that will work, most tension meters are for tennis rackets which have thicker strings and tensions which would snap a badminton racket, a badminton racket tension wouldn't even register.

    There's a tension reader in one of the racquet shops here that reads badminton racquets along with other types of racquets.

    This is what I found.........and I think it should be pretty accurate (looks like)
    Perhaps I should get one for the demo....

    Er... some of the contraptions doesn't look small enough to test a fully strung badminton racquet. Maybe to test main strings before stringing the cross, but not both. The ETM2 is a possibility...

    I believe it is accurate from testing my racquets there. They usually test it right after they string and then I go in from time to time to read the tension.
