    That's crank tension. Peter Gade uses 32 lbs from constant-pull machine.

    Well, I think it's an unwritten (maybe written, who knows) agreement between the pros and their racket sponsors for the tensions to not be shared with the public. Most Yonex rackets are only guaranteed to support tensions in the low to mid 20s. Granted, most will stand higher tensions, but if every amateur knew the numbers the pros used, they'd be sure to emulate. Yonex would suddenly have many more broken rackets and unsatissfied customers.

    Almost all modern racquets, including fakes and other Chinese brands can be strung to 30lbs, provided if they are properly mounted and strung on 6-point machines. However, in reality you have no control over the quality of stringers and stringing jobs in the market, hence the conservative low tension warranty. At the warranty tensions you can almost string the racquet without any supports, say like manual stringing you still find some very old stringers using.
    If you have the 15 vcds CCTV5 badminton training series you will find Chinese coaches stringing racquets manually.

    Right - I don't doubt today's rackets' ability to take higher tensions, just forgot to mention variability of stringing skill as the main reason for increased breakages, which you did write about.

Right mas sifuyono? Guys...ask him how Taufik practice his wrist, it's insane .

    Don't want to answer it Jack, it's our (indonesian's) secret . Tennis or squash racquet? We have sooo many amateur/recreational badminton players here, in cities, villages, but believe me mostly they can't afford to buy another racquet

    Try it more "natural" like us Jack! Put sand in the bottle big one, 660 ml) as much as you can, wrap it's neck with cloth and play your wrist, fast...and faster to any direction! Those big racquets will just make you swing (your forearm) more. Focus on your wrist Jack and dont tell your buddy about it.

    In general, higher tension = more control less power; lower tension more power less control.

    hei..heiii it's not mine ...
    that's a very economical way, but nowadays wrist strength doesn't populair as before, now it's time for... arm swing speed...
