    Generally, players who have a huge swing action do not like very high tension. However, players who use more wrist snap can handle very high tensions better. A wrist snap is much faster than a huge swing. It is similar to swatting a fly-a short, sharp snap of the wrist vs a giant swipe, using a newspaper, at the fly.

    Thanks taneepak, after reading your post I decided to use more arm swing yesterday and as the result it feel easier to clear and smash. I will just keep using this string now. Well as most ppl said its not the equipment its the skills .

    Uhh.. you mean wrist, right ? Once people people start using their wrist more than their whole arm/shoulder, their skills improve really fast.

    What I have noticed about the BG68Ti it loses about a pound after playing with it about an hour.. And I honestly don't like.. What string could you recommend for me that don't loses tension that fast? Maybe a little bit tighter than the BG68Ti and it can hold the tension for long..

    Bg80 holds tension quite well- although it feels harder than Bg68ti, which has a softer feel

    Default Comment about String type

    To add, one must also consider the type of string and the properties it has when you are looking at optimum tension.

    For the longest time I've used stiffer string types - Gosen, ProAce and Forza and my optimum tension has been at 21 pounds. Recently Dink sent me with some Ashway Micro Power and Power Gut, both of which are certainly a much softer string that what I'm used to.

    To get the same feel, I've had to step up the PG to 23 pounds and the MP to 25 to get the same feel as the recent Gosen.

    Also, many string have different properties at different tensions. A string that is suitable at high tension will quite often have way different characteristics at low tension. Pro-66 and Forza .72 for examples:

    Pro-66 performs and lasts really well at 25 plus pounds, but has no life span at 21 pounds. Touch is very good, power is middle of the road.

    Forza on the other hand snaps easily at higher tensions and is like hitting with a board. At 21 pounds, the stuff is dynamite - it's only drawback is that it will suddenly lose tension ( it's almost like a catastophic failure) instead of breaking.

    As echoed right back to the first post of this thread, higher tension isn't always better and you need to find what works best for you.

    I've managed to avoid arm/shoulder injuries, yet remain a big hitter by resisting the stange infatuation with younger players to "go tighter".

    Default String

    My Racket broke in a fiersome clash, so together with the racket my NGB95 string snapped too =( so ive bought back the same racket and due to the lack of strings offered by the shop, i went with a BG66TI, so far so good =( though im afraid it'd snap any moment xD I strung it at 24lbs xP

    Probably.

    Many people string their racquets higher than the manufacturer's recommended maximum, IMHO 26lbs is not that high but if you're worried why not try 24lbs first? Is your technique good enough for higher tensions? If you don't know, then don't make a huge jump, increase the tension in small steps.

    The risk is that the frame could break, either during stringing or during playing, if the frame is in good condition i.e. no cracks, hasn't been bashed etc. then it'll probably be ok. If the frame does break are you prepared to buy a new racquet?

    Of course, their recommendation is conservative (makes better business sense), those that are serious about badminton know they can ignore the recommendation and string with higher tensions with the caveat that they (not Yonex) are responsible if the racquet breaks.

    Don't do this, it sounds to me like you're just beginning to learn about stringing so why not try something more standard like 24lbs for both cross and mains.

    I don't have a crystal ball You will have to try it and find out!

    The grip size has no bearing on the stringing.

    Err should be able to string up to and over 30lbs depending on the stringer in my opinion... There are many kason rackets strung at about 35lbs here...
    My coach has his mp100 strung at over 30lbs...

    My tecnique of playing is not that good.Can say that my timing is quite bad...

    Not reallyI love my racket.There is some scratches... Well what u think? 24lbs or 23lbs?If i got hit the frame SOMETIMES...But maybe not that hard...
