    Default not even 1 month and no tension?

    Does any1 have my problem where the string tension goes poof in not even a month? around 2 weeks? I used a BG 85 strung at 25lb on a Woven 8 and i got it on March the 6th. Now its only March 23rd and when i pull apart the strings, the strings dont go back to its original place with even spacing... leaves a big gap =.= Especially the horizontal ones T ^ T now i gotta restring my AT700 and my Woven 8 T ^ T

    Depends on how long you play for and how hard you hit.

    is there paint on the strings? i have mine strung at 28lbs.. and from the very beginning the strings do move - and stick apart because of paint on the strings.

    this doesn't necessarily mean that the strings have gone..

    what i do to check the tension is hit another racquet (usually my other identical racquet) against the strings of the restrung one. the sound is usually a high ping, and if my other racquet is strung similarly they make similar sounds.

    of course if the pitch is noticeably lower then i know the strings have gone and i'm due a restring.

    if your strings have gone in 2-4 weeks your either playing twice a day 7 days a week or it's a bad batch of string, or the stringer's done a bad job and a knots loosened or something..

    hope this helps

    .... isnt that a normal.. it should even take a month for your tension go down, even a few days will do...i bet no stringinger can garantee you that your strings tension wont drop in a month. And is it really necessary for you to restring your racquet every time your tension goes down by alittle?? that's just a waste of money??

    If you don't want your string to move, do what I did, string it yourself at 30 lbs+ . The tension is so tight that it has no where to move...hehehe .
    The sound of the shuttle hitting the string is so nice , like tapping a wine glass with a salad fork . Warning, don't miss hit.... , because the string will pop very easily .

    When you pull the spring apart, it usually NOT bounce back by itself, especially if the tension is lowered to below 25lb. That's just normal.

    yeah. I think it depends on how long you have played for and how hard you hit, I'm more of a smasher than drop shotter so I get my racquet tightened every month.
