    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.

    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.
