    I think that's a bit harsh. He's experimented with different tensions and setups and found one he likes. He plays league matches and wins. Why change it.
    I think footwork, stroke technique, consistency and fitness are each more important than tension.

    edit:
    and we're going off topic, my fault - sorry.

    <Applause> </Applause> well said!

    Dunno why all the secrecy really, it's not like that info can really be used against someone to win a match. And it's going to be different for everyone. What works for one wont for the other.

    Let us look at it from this way-you will be hard pressed to find any of today's top men or women players playing with the Ong Ewe Hock tension of old. In the days of 150g wooden Dunlop Maxply racquets and natural gut, 18lbs tension was plenty. Today we have much higher tech racquets. Adapt or be left behind.

    it was 10 years ago, and i played w/ bg-66 at 28lbs on carbonex 20 tour sp, do my racket have higher tech? i don't think so It's about preference, each player has it's own playing style and preference
