    Very wise words. For me it depends on the racket. If a 2U racket, 24/27 is ideal. If 3U: 25/28, if 4U: 30/33.

    Is this just you? or are high-tensions like that very common were you live? or worldwide for that matter?

    A new string to add to the collection: True Speed Power (TSP) 0.75mm string! Yes, 0.75mm. This string barely fits inside the share grommets, I had a heck of a time pre-stringing the racket with this string.

    If you have the ability to flex this string, you will generate tremendous power. It makes the loudest "BOOM!!!" of any string I have tried and hits bombs. Unfortunately, it seems that most people cannot flex the string so maybe the TSP is only for select people.

    I thought thinner strings gave greater "boom"
    what the novelty in this thing?

    can you flex it?

    It's mostly just me. Most of the advanced players I know use 23/25-24/27. If I use too low a tension, I will hit everything just out.

    I believe the Pros use higher tension to keep the shuttle in bounds not to gain more power. They have immense power, the key is to contain it on drives and clears.

    I thought thinner strings give better performance too. I don't know why this TSP string is the exception to the rule and does so well.

    As to if I can flex the string or not...one of my Coaches said, after I hit a smash with the TSP string, "Holy crap!"

    Maybe tomorrow I'll videotape myself hitting with this string and compare it our beloved BG-80. Same racket, same tension, same shuttle, different string. With BG-80 you will hear "BOOM!" With the TSP, you will hear "BOOOOM!!!"

    So far, I've never heard another string that makes such a distinct sound, asssuming the string is flex.

    well no. not thát literally...I coudl still clear baseline to baseline...but 22, perhaps lower felt more comfortable...It's weird to explain...and my clear don't álways reach the baseline..no matter what tension, racket, grip, whatever...

    well, that depends on the player...some people hit the hardest with 25lbs....some with 20lbs....write down your current tension, and when it brakes add 1 lbs.

    unless you're already at 27lbs..then consider something lighter (because it might be so your playing with a too high tension).

    it's very hard for an outsider to judge...

    pff, that's a tough call...If you were too playw ith 18lbs I could say: up it...if you were to play with 28 i coudl say :lower it...but this is really mediocre (like me ) just try out both lowering and tightening...search your own optimum...

    you could also consider the problem lies elsewhere:your racket is too light/too heavy. (arm-player tend too perform better with anvils than with light rackets. Wristy-players could choose for both i guess) or your balance point (head-light rackets tend to be more difficult to clear with) or posibly your racket rigidity (you might be too weak to flex you extra-stiff racket. or your strong enough to take a stiffer rackets for more power)
    i But it could also be your swing, or your technique...

    Or as i recently discovered: your footwork...having a hmstring-injury (6 weeks now. oh gods, what have I done wrong?) my leg strength is lacking. wich results in me not being behind the shuttle in time. and so my clears and smashes get screwed up (both power and for teh smashes the angle)

    thanks for the reality-check...I forgot to mention wich string

    BARR_J, do you knwo wích string you're using? Maybe BG80 can help you a bit. it's thinner then average (0.67 when 0.7 is teh average) but doesn't have good durabilty...bg66 possibly has more power, btu even worse durabilty. bg65-ti has less power, though more than bg65. but the ti-coating puts some people off...
