    Is it possible that the tension is too low, how about trying to increase the tesion to 24-25lbs?

    hey if the strings depend on ur tension too if you use 25 pounds you can use bg 65 if you wish to go higher you should use bg 80 and after 31 you should use nanogy 95

    I like BG85 at 21X23lb for great control on MP99. It hold tension better and the rough surface gives great control on the net. BG80 at same tension will be my second choise if BG85 break too fast. If money is an issue, G65 at 22X24 will do. Check out Sir DinkALot's string review to find other good string from other brands.

    The higher the tension, the higher the risk u will face. Also, warranty could be an concern as well. However, within reasonable tension range, with a decent racket, a reputable stringer should not have any trouble to string a racket.

    it's possible that yonex has taken a lerge factor of safety when considering 22lbs as max tension value.so what is the max safe value?

    also,i was watching indo open 06 and the tv commenter said on air that pros use low tension for higher power and high tension for control.how does that work?

    In general, Yonex badminton racquets will take 10% over the recomm limit. So if you have a MP99 with recomm max 22lb. It is safe to string it up to 24lb. It if a new one breaks, it is stringer's fault.

    There are many post about effect of tension on power/control. Do a advance search and you will find a lot of info.

    yonex didnt take a large factor in safety .the only reason its writen there is because if there is a bad stringer and he makes the racket crack you wont be abe to claim it .if any yonex racket which has sp which stands for made in japan it should be able to hold 26 real easily. most pros string thier racket to more than 30 lbs. practicly every 1. and the low tension for higher power cant be true i know a few pros and they say you have to use a high tension but not too high . in order to get the shot you want.
