    Racquet won't collapse because we get the right kind of machine setup for the job. Best bet is to get a six-point suspension machine. Saves you lots of work and worries. You might consider the Eagnas ST-250 but it's crank. You can always convert it to a drop weight .

    What about Eagnas Challenger I ? Its a 6p system with drop weight.
    Is that good enough for that kind of works?

    Im sure that I have tightened both the bottom and the tops adjustments on the mounting post (on my 2point system).

    Maybe I shall reduce the tension when I come to the final mains to avoid braking more racquet....

    1. Did you use a piler to tighten the posts? It's impossible to do it by hand, as 25lb x 22 mains = 500+ lbs.

    2. Did you start the main in the middle, and alternate between left and right. Start from the side, or finish 1 side completley then another side, is very risky, especially with high tension job.

    3. When you adjust the leveler, make sure don't use extra force to push it down. If so, you are adding significant extra tension on the racket.

    4. Carefully inspect racket, before start a job.

    5. M140 is a well made machine. I've finished about 400-500 rackets on mine, and so far, no issues.

    I second LB on M140. I was able to string 300+ racquet without any problem. Also my highest tension with M140 is 25.5X28lb with HiQua fly clamps. It was a special request.

    Lazybuddy:
    I started the main in the middle, altered between left and right, but I didnt inspect my racquet this time. If you have strung more than 400 racquets then I think its my lack of experience
    Btw, did you string more than 24lbs with your klippermate?

    28lbs with 2point machine?!! Is it possible O.o ? Isnt it very risky? However I also have bought a pair of Hiqua fly clamps but I doubt they will prevent racquet brakeage ^^

    Yes, 25.5X28 lb on a 2 pt machine. It was a personal request. It is not the clamp that prevent racquet from breaking. HiQua and Yonex fly clamps can hold the string at higher than 28 lb tension without string slipping. As I said before, tension last main from throat 10, not from top 15.

    i've used that klippermate before to string my own racket numerous times at tensions only above 25 lbs and as far as i can tell about 30lbs (even tho i think that kind of drop weight does not give accurate settings). first thing, when u tighten the knobs at the 2point, make sure u crank it until u feel like ur trying to open a bottle that is hard to open (or get it close to that anyway). 2nd thing, itz dropweight , just prestring/preweaves the whole racket before you start the actual stringing. third, there's 2 settings on the machine. one for tennis and one for badminton conversion. make sure u converted it right or u might actually be pulling more than 25 lbs =P last, those rackets for all you know might be really cheap imitations (depending on where u buy it from)
    btw...i no longer recommend stringing at 30 because i recently broke 2 rackets in 1 week. but they served me a good 3+ years before they gave in. both had racked up considerable amounts of internal and external damage before it dies and i managed to kill a few yonex rackets before mine broke... and i do mean quite a few =P

    goodluck!

    Most of my jobs are within 20-25lb range. A few times, I did things like 27 or 28lb, with special requests from friends. Personally, I won't recommend to use 2 point machine for job above 25lb, when you count the risk factors. You really have to know what you are doing when working with high tension (even with 6 point machine), otherwise...

    The flying clamps are made to prevent tension loss while speed up the process. They have no meaning to prevent the breakage of the rackets. However, if you don't use them properly (i.e. 1 side suffering significant tension loss), it might result in damage of rackets, due to uneven balance tension.

    What do you mean by "propotional string method"?

    Pls visit http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ead.php?t=8079

    The idea is that more tension in the middle of main/cross and lower tension when you come the final main/cross.

    This maight reduce stress at 3/9 o clock on the frame...
    I dont know so much about that method but maybe its a good idea.

    Now I remember that topic. The point to lowering tension on the outer string is to increase sweet spot and produce a even tension string bed. That is why Yonex started making ISO frame. Because the 10 middle strings has simular length and same tension.
    Yes, do try it out. I think it will be a good method to try. For commercial stringer, it will take extra time to adjust the tension and that is why most of shop don't do it.

    No. The pros that I string for all like tensions betwen 30 to 33. Not a problem at all. In fact, I have even manged to do it with rackets that are already visibly damaged i.e. cracked. Just need to be careful.

    The proportional method will lead to loss of tension quicker i.e. string to 28, feel like 26 after few games or days. In my experience, only worth it if you are going above 30lbs. For many players with these kind of tensions, they will probably snap their string before it has had time to drop in tension in a significant way.

    F-man:
    When you string your racket with 30+ lbs, do you use a 2point machine?
