    Perhaps. The 13Lb MicroLegendXL happens to be my most powerful string at the moment. BG80 is not bad at 13Lb.

    so what benefits do you get from stringing at these low tensions?

    Increased energy efficiency that translates to prolonged endurance, or reduced energy input, or increased energy output.

    do the strings separate after hitting the shuttle hard?

    Combining MicroLegendXL with BG80 will give a feel harder than MicroLegendXL but softer than BG80. I haven't found anything special about the hybrid. Apart from the one attempt I made, I won't bother with any more until I find a good reason to try again.

    Although BG80 is a good string, I always go back to MicroLegenXL very quickly because I just feel the Ashaway string takes less energy from my muscles to work with. I think Ashaway has turned me in to a softy, and I became a willing victim to stay that way. The only Yonex string I now find comfortable to use is BG66Shap. All other Yonexes feels too hard.

    the shuttle will proably get lodged between the strings on miss hits

    New string will move after a hard shuttle contact irrespective of tension. Once the string has been used for a while and the crosses start making grooves in the mains, or vice versa, the string will stop moving about.

    Theoretically, that's possible. But the whole point of low tension is that you don't have to hit it that hard. Low tension is intended for the physically weaker players. This type of players simply would not have the strength to spread the string and lodge the shuttle.

    This has been discussed in a previous thread so I'll just mention it briefly: "U-13 and U-15 girls". Physically weaker + correct technique + tension definitely above 13lbs = power.

    Yes, that's impressive. But not as impressive as mine:

    Physically weaker + no technique + no coaching time + no coaching fee + extended string life + suitable for even a 5 year old girl + 13Lb tension = power.

    how do u control the bird with such low tension? do u play competitively? i find it odd for a player to use 13lbs. You are making yourself look bad, as with this quote it reflects your concern over material rather than your own skill.

    We have extensively discussed CoolDoob's use of low tension, and his arguments suggesting that it increases power for all players, in this thread:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=29320

    Please let us not have another thread killed by argument about CoolDoob's opinions on low tension.

    In CoolDoob's defence, I find his practice of stringing lower and lower a refreshing corrective to the "wannabe pros" who insist on stringing higher and higher, despite being unable to handle the tension
