    String tension will drop, especially if you smash hard and/or play very often. Also, warmer and humid environment will make the string bed feel softer as well.

    actually, i just don't want that loose or 'soft' feeling when i hit the birdie... right now @ 25lbs, it's like that... but @29 lbs, it's like a wooden paddle hitting the shuttle cock...

    Yes, the higher you string, the more your string is bound to lose tension, especially with mishit or hard hitting, so many players who use high tension must restring often in order to retain the same feel.

    2 knots = single pc string
    4 knots = 2-pc string

    possibly ask the stringer to tie 4 times at each knot's place.
    if yours are 2 times, the string tends to loosen at tie easier...., hence the tension drops faster...

    I think bic33 agreed with both of my points, as #1, s/he is a smasher and #2 his/her region is hot and humid. Therefore, his/her tension drops.
