    Default tension for plastic shuttle

    hi, Lot of people here play with feather but for the one who still play with plastic , what tension do you use. A pro told me that high tension is good for feather but it doesn't give good result with plastic,

    i'm corrently at 22 Lbs (with my homemade machine ,that seem more high than the shop 22 Lbs) and i can't generate power, So i will come back to 20 soon. Cause i can't get habit to it, that bad cause i am precise like hell with this tension but can't smash.

    Do someone play high tension with plastic and can have decent smash.

    Don't waste your time playing nylon shuttles with high tension strings. Anything over 23lbs will bring diminishing returns.

    i dunno why but at 24/25lb i dont feel that big of a difference between nylon and feather.. the nylon ones i use are the Yonex Mavis 300 (which is supposed to be kind of like feather) and the feather ones i believe are mostly victor champion... am i doin something wrong?

    Ya, same here, my armortec was string at a tension of 22, but when I play with plastic shuttles, I can't even hit far...
    Before, I use a iso 56 with factory strings, I can even hit harder and further than my armortec.

    really? i strung at 24/25lb (diff rackets) BG 65.. play with both nylon (Mavis 300) and feather (victor champion) and dont feel a big diff.. maybe its just me... i find at 25lb i'm having to readjust my netshots... but the two rackets still smash about the same... i'd even go as far as saying smash with 25lb is a little more powerful (probably because diff racket) 25lb is a different, tighter stringer with AT800DE, 24lb is MP 55, if that makes a difference

    I'm using BG65 Ti @ 24 lbs to play with both nylon and feather shuttles. I feel that this tension, I can smash hard as well as play netshots. I feel that hitting a shuttle with higher tension gives me more precise feeling to my shots.

    I avoid plastic like the plague, but I usually play 25x27lbs and my only problem is too much power and the shuttle always flying out the back of the court even on a relatively steep shot - the nylon birdies tend to fold in the air on a hard shot.
