Thread: Stringin tensions..
03-11-2007, 01:54 AM #18
sometimes i do ask, but it is more of curiosity.
i like high tensions but not too high. cos i do not want to have my arm or wrist destroyed. imagine trying to zip up your pants with a busted wrist.

Hehe..easier explanation is that younger ppl tends to string it up to a higher tension,because they have powers.But in fact,even a muscular player cant really hit the shuttles harder than a skinny person,who has a better technique.That happens alot.Some players can hit harder n better in a lower tension then others that uses higher tension as well.
So,i guess the stringing tension is basically a personal choice..not a competition.Dont be afraid to try high tension,but do consider ur own ability.

My friend is a shorter than me and weighs about 140ish lbs. I'm'about 5'7 without shoes and weight about 120lbs. I can hit way harder than my friend He hasn't played badminton in a while but technique ftw.

all these lies if you string at higher level, it means you are better for sure try 40lbs!!! i'll call you a pro imediately
all joking aside, itz personal preference. i like the feel of hitting the shuttle at high tension. itz a difference feel which i really like (mainly for drops). at a lower tension, that feeling disappears. as for smashes, i smash at any tension and the optimal smash tension for me is around 25lbs, but i alway string my racket (used to be at 30lbs) 28lbs now due to 2 racket breakage at 30lbs... =P

i love the hitting sound at 28-29lbs tensioned-string. ensure the stringer give you the actual tension, not those mis-caliber stringing machine.... stringing tension is to individual preference. some like it lower, 20-24. some like it higher 24-30lbs. each racquet perform best at certain string tension.
