    precisely what i have been thinking, it doesn't matter that these strings are in a ti10, they will have hardly any control

    Not sure what people mean by control. My badminton is not at that level yet. I play in division 3 league games for my club. At my current rate of progress, I should reach division 2 level in 6 months time. I don't do chops or slices. I clear, smash, push, drive, and drop. I don't find low tension being a hinderance. MicroLegendXL has superb accuracy at low tension. I have not had a single wide of the mark by 2 foot experience with it in 3 months. Before I had the low tension, I could berely play in a division 3 game. After low tension, I was above average in a division 3 game. So material made all the differnce to me. I look good when I win games. Skills don't seem to matter as much.

    Yes, I think my shots are under control, except those times when I hit the shuttle with the frame. Can't say I am a net player. But my push just over the net is a total killer. I could do that with high or low tension.

    you have proved everyone's theory wrong!the theory is that the higher the tension the more control, so you would expect a very low tension to have no control

    And I thought no one could maintain a 30+ posts a day average for more than their first day, but y'know, you proved me wrong too.

    Since we're already Wildly off-topic, I just want to add, I feel more comfortable with lower tensions (18-21lbs) for net play, I feel I control the power Very well on Long drop shots, or tight net play, etc.

    Back in the old days, the top international pro's were using 10Lb tension. I have definitely proved them right. Hmmm if I want to be a pro, I must reduce my tension by 3 more pounds ....

    Don't tempt me, I may well try. A young man like you should have more sense of adventure.

    Oh dear. Early warning signs have been ignored. The thread is now fibrillating with an unshockable rhythm. I estimate 70% chance that either:

    1. The thread will die soon; or
    2. It will suffer permanent brain damage, leading to aphasia and the inability to talk anything but drivel.


    Actually, (2) appears well underway already

    Wrong, if you want to be pro now, you need to increase your tension by 2.5 times. 13lbs. x 2.5 = 32.5lbs...perfect!
