    Default HIGH string tensions

    Has anyone out here in the vast plains of badminton central tried tensions at 30lbs?
    If so, how did you find it's performance and what kind of shuttles were u using? I might want to try 30lbs just for fun since the racquet can take it.
    thanks for replies.

    I have tried 30lbs tension with BG65. For my bad quality play, it didn't make any difference.

    Cheung, which racket did you use 30lbs on? I'm assuming it was the Ti-10 or the MP100?

    Cab20. I don't have the skill to use such tensions.

    Yes I have tried 30 lbs and 40 lbs on a Ti-10. It takes quite a bit of skill to play at those tensions, not for the average casual player. You can give it a run, but strings become very costly when you wear them out time over time.

    I generate a lot of power and have nice feel. When you 30+ lbs tension, it doesn't affect feel or power anymore, you've pretty much meet a plateau.

    yes, it can be done. Some carlton rackets even warrantied by the manufacturer to take 40 lbs (unlike yonex which can't make such claim officially)

    carlton can do it cos its a widebody frame....
    the Ti10 is a thin frame....like the slim10. I dont mean to offend Don, but i believe that the ti10 cannot take 40lb tension.....I can understand the carlton taking 40lb since its an oval frame.....but the ti10 is isometric-isometric isnt as strong because of its angles/edges.

    To my knowledge, the only widebody model that Carlton produced is the Airblade Boron Hi-T.

    And I don't find it strange that the Ti10 would take 40 lbs. If it's strung by a really good stringer and played without mishaps then why not? But my guess is you'd be stretching the limits... and most likely it would reduce the life span of the racquet.

    Peter Gade strings his (supposedly fragile) Slim-10 at 33 lbs. I've seen him break strings, but I have never seen him break a racquet during match play, so there must still be some headroom left.

    Default 32 lbs on a Ti-10 2U SP

    I understand this thread is very old but bear with me. Has anyone had experience with stringing a Ti-10 SP 2U to 32 lbs?

    That woudl kill the Ti-10, I dont think Ti-10 SP will last long with such a high tension.

    I had my lesson when I saw my friend broke his Ti-10 at 26lbs after a mi****.

    I try the coach's racket with 32 lbs once. The bounce feeling at high tension is very good when doing push and net block. But it is very hard to generating power. After a couple of hard smashing, I feel pain on my wrist.

    that sounds like the edge to me.
    You will either make it or break it.

    However, with very careful stringing....it might be possible to be done.

    But I won't believe if a Ti-10 can take 40; I won't believe it unless I see it myself.
