    Default Yonex rackets= inferior quality?

    Hi fellow badders,
    Here in Singapore, Stringers in Singapore claim that Yonex rackets are not able to take high tension, above 24. But other brands like apacs etc can take higher tension. Is it true? Whats the highest tension you guys ever strung on your Yonex rackets? Please state model and country code. Does the difference in Country code makes a difference in the racket's ability to take high tension? Many Thanks.
    Regards,
    Bertbrainz

    Sounds like a bunch of non-sense regarding the Yonex part.

    Stringers in Singapore usually say that they cant string high tensions on yonex rackets. Or maybe its just the stringer that i usually go to? Singaporeans any views?

    I have SP coded rackets with no problems at all.

    Did you mean that the stringer wouldn't string 25 lbs for you?

    yes. They wouldnt string 25lbs for me. They say that yonex recommended tension is only 18-22lbs. So they wouldnt recommend tension so high on a yonex racket.

    Concur, SP code = no problems. My Cab 20 SPs say recommended tension is 16-22lbs. I've strung one as high as 30x33lbs. That's like 32x35 on an iso.

    I believe they are just trying to be safe, don't want any liability. That's all.

    Oh dear, let's not bring in the CAB explosiveness thread here. Okay, where is that EZ filter that Master NGP is selling for US$19.99?

    I believe that too.Yonex are expensive so stringer decides not to take the responsibility.

    Yonex are build to be strong so i dont think you should worry.

    On another note, Is it true that when you buy a racket.You need to strung it at the prescribes tension and the later one string it at other higher tension?

    That's rubbish. I think your stringer will do at 25lbs or more if you say "I'll take the responsibility"
    My At700 Sp is currently string at 27/29 lbs. It's still in one piece thoo.
