I just stumbled upon this forum and thought I could seek out some advice here.
I'm currently studying overseas here in the states and I bought a
Victor Brave sword 170 .
I have been reading around the forums and I concluded that the Nanogy 98 is prolly one of the better ones.
I did my stringing back in Malaysia and when I came here to the states , the string broke really quick and I recalled that I strung it at a very high tension.
What tension would you guys recommend I string. I live in New York and the winters here are really harsh and I do not want my strings snapping all the time. That being said I'm also a fairly good a player who plays tournaments and I do not want too little tension as it would not feel nice.
I used to think that if you breathed on your strings with warm air, you could keep them from breaking if you've been travelling in cold weather. I don't think it worked. You might just want to use more durable string and not change your tension, but that's just what I would do.
If you say you're a pretty good player playing tournaments, then nbg98 at 26 lbs for feathers should be fine... assuming you don't mishit much. But if you play often, don't expect the string to last till winter.
Great to know you are Malaysian as well !It says you're from canada on your profile though haha .
Do you have any recommendations for shuttlecocks as well ? I have been looking around and everything cheap seems to be fake and everything else seems to be over the top in $$$.
Also would 26lbs on the NBG 99 be ok or should i go a little less just so it lasts longer .
