    For the Never Greater Panda,
    It has been ordered with your sweaty band. I should be here this week and i will send it to you ASAP.
    For Peter the Greatest,
    I will use the Babolat Star5 in the shop. The Alpha machine is missing the tension head (tension head was mounted backward) and sent back for repair. Should I play your favorite song "Me So H!@#$Y" when I string them up?

    Greatest GrandMaster SH,

    Please take photos of the Star 5, with the badminton kit, in action. The sight will be the most stimulating. Yes baby, 31 lbs main X 34 lbs cross . Remember to activate 10% pre-stretch.

    actually, master SH you can already play that song when you string at one tension because when you string mains, due to the different distance in string, they are already creating different notes =P hahaha...

    Yes I would agree. Thicker strings stretch more while thinner strings pull tighter.

    I do believe (not sure if it is confirmed) ECP machine is used, the machine would be able to compensate for that and then pull it accurately regardless what thickerness it would be. Compare it to the crank where it does not have this ability that one would have to increase the tension to compensate for the guage differences.

    Actually, it is due to the physic. Given 2 strings are same length and same tension. If the density of the string is the same, the thicker string will have higher mass. The thicker string will have lower tone under same condition.

    Great GrandMaster SH, we are waiting for the Babolat Star 5 string job. Let's hear the "ting" and do a comparison between Great GrandMaster DinkALot's ECP and the Star 5.

    So sorry! Silly me!

    The string on all the rackets were Ashaway ZGut X1709 (0.73-0.74mm).

    So, the string pitch will only be higher on thinner strings.

    My bad! I'm so used to typing "MP". ...


    Hopefully one of the mods can edit my post.

    I didn't notice it until...just now...XiaoHou was looking at my rackets and I mentioned I just restrung one new Ti10 (which originally had ZGut) to MP and...oh no...

    *looks at the other Ti10s and realizes they all have ZGut*

    Good work Dinky Panda! at least we have a baseline to compare to now!

    Although your final comment "String it tight" could results in a lot of sore arms across the world!
