    The most prominent candidate would be a Karakal SL70, as they make a big point of its head loop being able to take 31lb. Having said that, Yonex tend to set their recommended tensions on the low side, but some pros go WAY over 30lb with them (Jens Eriksson reportedly uses 35lb on his) and they still hold up. AT900's, AT700's and Nanospeed 9000's tend to be their choices.

    I've heard from badmiintonshoponline that you can string the AT 900s up to 32 lb., though of course, the warranty becomes void, if you choose to do so. But otherwise, I'm sure it would still apply for you on recommended tensions, since they're SP coded rackets.

    28 LBS is nothing. I dare say that stringer is inexperienced.

    Bring it to Classic Sports at SAFRA Toa Payoh, Mr Soh can easily string at that tension without breaking. But... most probably he may examine your racket before proceeding, for previous 'injuries'...

    Thanks.

    Those guys from Queensway always like to complain to Sunrise that he undercharge the customers...

    One thing for sure, don't go Queensway, those guys are just inexperienced. In a shop located at the second floor, he broke one of the customer's racket when stringing, but... only offerred to pay for the string. Damn!!

    Mr Soh will even check the gommets...

    Thanks.

    I don't see any need to go 33LBS. Basically, most stringers string the rackets by pulling the string only from one side of the racket, so that they can speed up the process. Simply ask the stringer to pull the string from both sides, and I assure you that 26 LBS X 26LBS will be tight enough to surprise you. You can try moving the strings, the string will only move by one of two cells.

    Simply tell Mr Soh that you want it tight, and also instruct him to pull from both sides, he will know what you mean. But... please don't quote me, because he will have to spend 10 minutes more on each racket.

    Thanks.
