    Default Higher Tension = Lighter Racquet

    Is this true?...........isn't it because if you string at low tension the racquet will have more string on it because they are not stretched.........but if it is at a higher tension.........the string will be stretched out far causing leftovers.......

    also......isn't BG66 lighter than Bg65 since BG66 is thinner making it have less material?.........

    I just thought of this.........plz don't laugh at me.........=)

    I guess thats true, but I don't think it would make that much of a difference.

    it is true: lighter by like 0.0001 grams.
    you wont notice it....might as well not bother with such things.

    if u leave out some lines on main and cross, that would be even lighter.

    if u dont apply the YY logo on the string, more weight saving can be gain.

    if u wipe the dust off your racket before playing it, it would feel be even lighter

    if u carefully sand and buff off the clear coat and the paint job, u would will feel the extra weight reduction too.

    Dumb idea........I'd like to see you play with a wooden handle........also the string idea is dumb too........you see Lei Lo Sye.........if you string every other main and cross the racquet will have no more control and the strings will snap quicker......

    better yet, don't use your racquet when playing badminton. Use your hand to hit the bird, then it (the racquet) will be extremely light.
