    That depends entirely on your technique. If you can gauge it, with a perfect hitting technique of course (but theoretically) the higher the string tension regardless of what string that is used the easier it will "feel" for the player to hit a clear.

    IIRC you mentioned that with NBG95 your smashes are not hard. One of the near infinite number of reasons (arising from tons of non-linear variations due to string type, tension, thickness etc.) why could be because NBG95 feels soft to you on impact. BG80 is a harder feel string which could probably fix your problem.

    It takes a lot of experimentation before a player can settle on the most "perfect" string (type, thickness, tension etc.) and racquet combination, which is what the moral of the story stated in the opening post is.

    If i string my Arc saber at 28lbs would that make the racket snap?

    Read THIS THREAD which is just a few lines below. The question posted is no different than what have here.

    Try doing a search before posting almost non-related questions such as this one in the sticky threads all over.

    I bought a Nanospeed 9900 limited edition 6 days ago. Tried bg 68 ti @ 23 lbs first time because the youtube Zhao Jian Hua training clips chinese lady coach Xiao Jie mentioned she strings her racquet at that tension to suit her style of play (for control). She didn't mentioned what string she used. So I read the yonex string catalogue and saw 68 ti is designed for control players. I would prefer playing a control game than merely whacking the shuttle hard but a former coach did mentioned my key strength is my smash which I don't use often enough. Zhao Jian Hua strings his racquet at 28lbs because he mentions his technique is good and he likes it so.

    I played singles on sunday. Was adjusting to the new head light racquet. My other racquet is Voltric 70 also using bg 68 ti @ 25lbs but it has loss its tension because it is 3 months old. I played again on tuesday where I really tested smashing really hard (close to my limit) continuously 3 to 5 times in a row in quick repetitions. Then switch to my friend's Ti 10 racquet strung at 28lbs using bg 85. Strangely, my smashes were less powerful on the Ti 10 @ 28lbs. We switched racquets and my friend started smashing me using my Nanospeed 9900. He couldn't get the power in his smash and he mentions his arms hurt because the racquet was swinging too fast due to its lightness.

    My hand is currently sore. I played on thursday and realise I can't force myself because of the pain. I took time to watch the Fu Hai Feng how to smash youtube. He spoke of technique not power first. So I tried technique on thursday doubles game; reduced my smash to almost a third of my normal follow through but focused on the accuracy of the shots. How I did this was, to smash straight at my opponent's backhand side two to three times continously; but each time with better accuracy itching towards the side line. I am actually happy with the results.

    I tried my backhand clears (something I am still working on). Nanospeed 9900 seems to give me better control because it has a faster swing on the downward movement than voltric 70 but overall I notice that the shuttle flies further on clears or drops with the voltric 70 which is currently with a tension less than 23lbs using the same string the bg 68 ti. Voltric 70 is heavier at the head.

    I just went to another shop and the stringer is using a digital apacs machine and he asked me to string using nanogy 98 @ 25lbs. I obliged and will be testing it soon. Both my NS9900 and VT70 will be newly
    strung with nanogy 98 @ 25lbs. Hopefully I can better gauge the difference.

    I am still learning about this string tension issue and this thread has helped me in that direction. Thanks.

    does stringing with a machine gives different results than ones using manual labor?

    a few days ago, i sent my racket for stringing. the string felt different to what i normally used to although tension remained the same at 26-27lb. the last two i went both using manual stringing machine.

    Stringing is more of an art than science. Meaning that if you find a good stringer, stick with him, as different stringers with different techniques on different machines will give different results even if you ask for the same tension.

    Thanks. My go-to stringer was on holiday at the time. Guess i'll stick with her for the time being and see the results. I have sent my racket for computerized stringing quite a few times and i never seem to get the hang of it. The times i sent for manual stringing give me satisfactory results though.

    At 26 I cant smash or push the shuttle accurately, at 25, I can get everything, smash twice/3times as hard and play accurate netshots... I wanted to change up my tension but as i have 3 of the same racket I may string one at 27 and one at 24 and see what happens...

    @snack62:
    What kind of string you are using for your BS 12? I am using Yonex BG 68 Ti at 23 lbs, but I am not that satisfied with the playing. Looking for the right tension and/or the right string.

    Anybody has a suggestion?

    Cheers

    what is it with the theory lower tension is more power and higher tension is more control? i had a nanospeed 100 stringed at 22 then my coach let me use a voltric70 with28lbs and i probably hit harder by 150% . Was this just the head heavy racket or the string tension difference?

    150% is far stretched, but might be the better timing with the string or the head heavier racket. Or maybe you didn't hit harder at all but the string felt so......happens to me all the time with new strings First few hits are like 'Wow I could just punch holes in anyones defense right now' and in the real match situation it's more like 'Why won't you die!! Die!!!!!!!"
    Harder strings feel much more alive, but actually offer less power than softer strings most of the time. The increase touch on net and drop shots might be worth it though.

    Lol! That goes thru my mind and I hate that too when my opponents keep defending what I thought were killer smashes...
