    I was staring at the stringer machine's LED for a while when the fella was stringing all those rackets and I notice most of them seems to be using 30lbs.

    I was sitting in the front area with the courts right in front of me. The stringers' station were on the right of this area and when Peter Gade came on, he was on court 1 at the right. So I move to the rightmost seat and can't help staring at the tons of rackets! Yes, I saw the numbr 30 on the big LED display as I was also curious about what tensions they string. I cannot imagine where the 2 stringers find the time to string all those rackets... There's so many!

    do you know what is the highest tension a racket can take? 30lbs seems the max as I understand. Is there any particular racket can take higher tension?

    some models can take up to max. 33 lbs

    my unknown model racket is 30lbs (according to the seller when he strung for me 3 months ago), but some friends said maybe only 26 lbs.

    anyway, thanks bro for the pics, very nice that I noticed Armortec 700 also there (left-side).

    Many rackets go higher. I've seen a racket that was strung at 35lbs at the World Championships in Anahiem. It was Gade who strung his racket at 35lbs. My friend was a stringer and let me have the tag which specified the tension/string.

    Sorry, I have never tried 30lbs before, so I do not know.

    But however, Xie Xing Fang claims that she strings her NS8000 at 31lbs and Bao Chun Lai seems to string his NS8000 at 32lbs. So I guess NS8000 can go over 30lbs. And I have one of those.

    I have a stringing machine of my own and all of my racquets are over 30lbs. Ti-10 @ 32 lbs. Mp 99 @ 32 (broke after 3 weeks), all AT-700 are at 34-36 lbs. I tried 38 lbs on my AT-800 once. Man it's like a rock and you really have to hit it for it to go and even then it doesn't really go.

    seems a bit crazy for me with those tension.
    no bouncing effect at all for the shuttle.

    It get better when you get use to it. But when my brother and I were getting our racquet strung at a shop @ 28-29lbs, it kept on breaking like after 3 or 4 match. But it's fine now. It's just my brother and I that are crazy because the chance of the racquet breaking is much higher at those tension. I mean I had it where the racquet break right when the strings break. So if you're living with just one or two racquet. I surely don't recommend it.
