# Thread: Difference between tension 24 x 26 and 25 x 25

1. ## Difference between tension 24 x 26 and 25 x 25

as u can see from the title, what is the difference? btw it is not a math sum

2. the tension

if the stringer has a good suspension-system on his stringer 25x25 should be oke..with a less-than-ideal support, the racket might distort..(ie: get a bit shorter)
24x26 is a way to overcome this problem..

some say it's too make the crosses as tight as the mains..But I can tell the difference, it's nitpicking..After 2 sessions the difference is blown out anyway

3. sometime for isometric racket you can get a new one,round one!
MING

4. In my limited experience the difference lasts at least 2 months - strange as it may be .

of course its not a math sum, its a product since its multiplication

of course, after 2 months, strings are ready to be cut for a new string

The difference can only be discribed as tons.

8. does 24 x 26 give more consistant tension than 25 x 25? or does it give more repulsion power?

Consistency depends on the stringer. If he is good, you will get consistent tension at whatever tension you ask for. 25x25 is closer to a board than 24x26 is. Which is more repulsive deends on your strength, arm physique, and technique. Why don't you try them and tell us ?

10. you people really need to stop nitpicking...do you actually worry about these things when you step on court?

Yes, i worry alot about these things. Good tension wins games, and bad tension loses games.

What happened to simply the opponent being better than you?

You are playing the wrong people if "good tension" wins your games. It should be your skill that wins games.

Well, I have no chance of winning if my tension is 25lbs - 10lbs higher than my prefered tension. Likewise you will have no chance of winning if the tension is 10lbs higher than your prefered tension. As I am super sensitive to tension, even a .25lbs can make a great deal of difference.

You would be playing with the wrong type of people if you can win using poor or inappropriate equipment - for instance winning a game of badminton using a golf club. The people I play with are often equal or better than me. So poorly optimised equipment means a wipe out.

Vote to ban, this is just nonsense!

0.25lbs. cannot make "a great deal of difference" because in itself, 0.25lbs. is not a great deal of difference.

0.25lbs makes a great deal of difference to me. It makes the difference between playable and a lot less playable. I use a maximum relative tension variance of only .75lbs between the weakest player (7 year old kid) and strongest player (county level) I know when I string for them. Precisely how it is done, I don't care to explain.

BTW, here's more amunition for you to get me banned: string power has nothing to do with the string, but everything to do with those .25lb steps.

0.25lbs is barely noticable, other than pschycological...when you string your racket above the strings stretch-limit (when the string stretches, aprox. 13lbs or so) the strign will naturally lose tension...losing 1lbs in a week is no exception...

vote to ban...this is stupid...golf-club? dude...

I really pitty the person who has such low selfesteem he think his stuff won the game for him, insteda of him playign well/smart/fast...

then why do you like ashaway strings so much? why not buy a cheapy-string?

this is my end in the equipment-matters-debate...been through this Cooldoob vs the world thing...we all know how this is going to end...and I'm done with my part..

I bought the ashaways before I understood the effect of tension as opposed to the effect of the string. Since I have bought a life time supply of the ashaway already, I will carry on using it. I plan to buy some BG63's when stringing for regular string breakers. I don't foresee a lost of power for these people.

It's good to see democracy working on BC. Any more votes ?
