    many years ago, i thot of using...... guitar string (the thinnest one, it's thinner than bg66, 0.23 to 0.5mm). Bot some steel kind but never got around experimenting it. Imagine the slice i get, i can literally slice some cork off the shuttles The ping sound would be unforgetable 30lb? no prob. (but yes prob. for the racket)
    I used to play classical guitar (My guitar has been gathering dust on the wall. No time for badminton, let alone the guitar ). The lower strings (which produce high notes) are made of "plastic" that feels similar to badminton strings. I don't know the thickness though. You could experiment with them. I wonder which string (badminton or guitar) last longer on a racquet

    By the way, my CAB 30MS is 3U. I will try a CAB 23 as you suggested. Thanks!

    not sure if cab23 come in 3U but 3U prolly better for u.
    I think it is better to practice more with ur cab30 than buying another racket for now.

    i personally think badminton strings would work better for badminton and guitar strings better for guitars.
