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.

Anyway how you know it was 30? Was it one of those electronic machine with big number written accross the screen?

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).

Two Yonex stringing machines were used: 1 manual and the other electronic.

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.

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.
