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.

i dun hit THAT hard in my opinion...Im only 15 yrs old!Also I play defensively in singles... I mainly smash in doubles only! o.o and i only played around approx. 22 hours during spring break and around 7 hours for the other week! My friend says that its probably cause of crappy string job T ^ T

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

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 .

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.
