    The crosses is shorter than the mains.

    Does the same happen in tennis or squash?
    At least in tennis, the general rule is you DECREASE 3 lbs since the crosses are shorter. In some cases, people may do the same tension the whole way through because of ATW stringing, or to reduce string movement.

    I think the difference is, that the tennis frame is so thick, after stringing the mains, it can still hold its shape, where as the badminton frame will easily get compressed by the mains and extra tension on the crosses are required to "fix" the shape.

    If the stringbed deflected in a simple way I would agree that the crosses would have to lengthen more than the mains.
    I don't think it's so simple. I don't know, but I think it's more like a bell curve, and that there is not much difference in the stretching between mains and crosses.

    i don't think he meant the tension increase on the strings, I think he means the 'tension' (maybe a poorly chosen term, in a stringersforum) or stress on the sides of the racketframe increase.

    the racket basically folds at the sides (~3 o clock) and snaps back into shape. Or at least, that's the theory...It is also what yonex advertises with elastic-ti.

    and what Tanpeek says is that this only happens when a racket is strung to perfection...

    Surely the frame can only change shape (in that plane) due to changes in tension in the string, because only the string is in contact with the frame.

    (Unless the head narrows because of the difference in speed between the throat and the tip )
