    Default Stringing heavily on a light racquet

    I heard from some people that stringing heavily on a light racquet is not a good idea, so is it true?

    I'm thinking about stringing like 24 lbs. on my Isometric Ti Swing power SR (I think it weighs 81 grams).

    If that's not a good idea, than what's the heaviest I should go.

    Kelvin,

    SR/SA are about 81-84 grams. It should be able to withstand it but try to keep it under 25. I have my SA set to almost 23 lbs (I set to 22.85!!), but next time I will put it at 23.

    Default Your name

    Kelvin, I take it you are not the former Canadian junior player who used to be involved with distribution of Forza racquets in Canada, correct? That Kelvin used to post here a lot and still frequents the site occasionally, so perhaps you should change your posting name/pseudonym slightly so as not to create any confusion. Thanks.

    24 lbs is not a problem at all. I use 26 lbs on my ISO 900 SR CN. My Ti SP SA SP is also strung at 25 lbs.

    Okay, I changed my name ^^, but so what some of you guys are saying is that the strings will break easily if I string it too heavy?

    Well that would be the good SP batches. Eheh you wouldn't want to break your expensive racket thou. I'm sticking with 23 on the SA thou. I don't think I'll raise the bar thou because I may not take advantage of the tention properly.

    Nope.

    It's actaully if you string the tention too high, the racket may not withstand it and will break.

    Default Definately

    Yes, that is a consideration depending on what string you play with. The difference is more noticable with thinner strings.

    In response to Kelvin2's query, the danger in stringing above the manufacturer's recommended tension is that you run the risk of racquet breakage and invalidating the warranty on the racquet. Most racquets are warrantied up to 22lbs.

    I personally string all my racquets between 22 to 24 lbs and yes, the warranties are void but so far, I have no problems with the racquet.

    Thanks Brett for sticking up for me while I was away.

    Also, since there are like 3 or 4 Kelvin's, they should name themselves accordingly
    I believe I was number 1, but I'm not adding the suffix to my name heh.

    Perhaps "THE Kelvin" would be appropriate?

    Default Re: Stringing heavily on a light racquet

    Well most racket can stand tension of 25lbs. But its another story when you crash them. If you are playing singles by all mean then go for it, if you are playing doubles... then becareful
    Also you have to makesure that your racket is restring by someone experienced. This is important!!!
    I had Muscle Power 88 4U, got them two weeks ago... thinking to restring them at 22x23lbs, but a bit worried because its difficult to find some one who are experienced enougth. This is because I ask this guy to restring my TI10 for 22x23lbs, assuming that he will used t pices of string, but he didn't.
