    i string my old as-1 at 27 all the times, no proble it even killed a few other rackets ahhahha, scary times.... but most new rackets can take much higher tensions, it's just that as tension increases, it's more likely to break, and the consistency of the tension will matter more. i think....

    yeah. even the stock strings on the crappiest racket are strung at more than 15pounds i guess. lol
    i dont know. maybe the stringer is using a '1point' stringing machine? joking!!!

    Well, there are so many answer for that. I am a stringer myself, and I have may customer that required stringging which is more than 25lbs. I had been string a lot of rackets with various of tensions, be it 20lbs-30lbs. In fact, the way how you string the racket, the stringging machine, all play very important role. If the rackets had been string in a correct way, some racket can be string at 32lbs. And if your racket is season, meaning which it had been used for quite some time, and the condition of the racket is not that promising, then I would not recomend to string at higher tension as the possibility for that racket to crack is very high

    The racket below is strung at 31lbs. The frame didn't break but something else did. In defense of the racket, it lasted over 2 months of continuous use before went to Racket Heaven. It's about the longest a racket has lasted me in a long time. In contrast, the yellow Ti10 lasted about 3, maybe 4 weeks. Oh, that's my final answer.

    i wouldn't worry about it.

    i have the same racket myself and i constantly put it up to 27x29 no problems...

    just make sure he is careful and not rushing it.

    assuming correct pattern and reliable machine, i find that rackets break when the stringer is rushed and cranks the crank too fast.

    just turn the handle slowly and the racket SHOULD be fine

    With a experienced stringer and a good condition racquet, most modern racquet can hold 30lbs.

    if your playing unsafe (ie catching the flooar , hitting the partner's racquet, banging it against the post, hitting the wall, throwing it at the ground when you lose a point, hitting your partner's head, hitting your own knee, etc etc.) if you do it with enough force, your racquet will break regardness of tension.

    but it is true that Increasing in string tension your racquet will be sightly, very sightly weaker(ie easier to break) but not much.

    So string at a tension you like. and enjoy the game
