    When my machine was out, I was stringing at say 27-28 - the end tension was ok for the first few days, but then lost it.

    The first few days, the tension feels nice..., but then goes downhill, can only think the string is stretching.

    Is there any official or unofficial chart which lists how much string stretches by ?, ie: to get an end of 25, you need to string at 27-28 with BGxx/whatever string ??

    Hail Master SH! Hail Master SH! . . .

    Not sure about the 22 ga fishing string for CD6's badminton racquets, but the Master Dan approved unit sure is nice .

    I have since calibrated my machine, and to my surprise - its between 4 and 5lbs out, I set my stringing machine to 25lbs, cranked it - and the display read between 20 and 21 over 5-6 times I tried, I have since adjusted, and now its bang on 25lbs.

    Right - next problem, I seem to be losing tension, when I string a racket - the tension is superb, during the days after - it tends to lose tension, 2-3-4-5lbs i would think, is this due to my string stretching, or am I doing something wrong ??

    Am using Strength-Pro Nano 70, and Yonex BG80 - and its happened to both.

    Cheers again, Vaughn.
    Hi there
    According to a UK badminton website, your freshly strung racket
    will lose approx 10% of it's tension within 24 hours, whether you
    use it or not.
    So if you want say 24lbs, string it at around 27lbs, don't use it
    for a day or so, and with a bit of luck, you should have 24lbs.
    If it stays at 27lbs, and you break your wrist, or your frame,
    please forget that I mentioned it.
