Which racket can tie highest tension?
HI all, just wan to find out which racket can tie lets say 30 lbs and above WITHOUT breaking or cracking. Wanna try 1. Thanks for all your helpful inputs

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.

i have AT700 but i asked a shop to do tension 28 and it broke, feel damm angry. I dare not try another At700 at 30 lbs. i have AT800Off too, i dun really dare to try on expensive rackets

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'...

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...

ya i think the stringer is inexperienced. there was only a slight chip off paint coming off and he says thats the reason. He used machine stringing and my racket broke! it was less than 3 months old. think i will bring my racket to safra and let him restring. can go 33lbs for amortec800O?

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.

Pull from both sides? What do you mean?
