Thread: Why +2lbs On The Cross?
11-22-2009, 03:05 PM #239
How good is "looks good", Master AK? Do you use the same comparatives between a strung and an unstrung badminton frames to judge a 80 + lbs tennis string job? For example, length between an unstrung & a strung tennis frame. Then the symmetry between the width of the frame . . . etc.
Tennis frames are robustly built compared to badminton. However, at repeated 80 + lbs string jobs, can a tennis frame last long?

tks vm again for the swift reply.
now, i wonder whether you are with PRIORITY 1 stringing (nate f. and ron y.). he he.
hey appreciate it, really. more power to you and company.
p.s. just to point i am not crazy about breaking things...i experimented w baddy racquets and arrived at my favorite 28/30 tension (same deal w my 62 lbs for tennis). certainly i went upto 33/34 but the string life was utterly useless, it lasted 10 minitues...and on the 3rd restringing it still broke (averages 10-20 minutes for the 3 times i strung it at 33/34) so i decided to ease back!
[off-topic] hey seems the SPECT imaging thing didn't catch fire yet huh! i am still thinking how dr. d amen didn't include baddy since it also involves a lot of hand-eye coordination?
[on topic] in the past my wilson hammer 110 oversize was repeatedly strung at 75 until some lady ask to have it (fiery red gloss finish). the only thing that broke was the grommet (twice, for so many restringing). bearing in mind though that a 110 sq in frame might not be the same as an 88 sq. in frame.

I need help here.If I am using a Yonex Nanospeed 200 racquet.What tension should I have it strung to?.....My friend who does stringing service is suggesting stringing it at 24lbs or 25lbs with Nanogy 95.However upon looking at the stringing range for Nanospeed 200 it says 17lbs-22lbs.Please advice whether I can string it at 24 or 25 when it says 17-22.

dis is my first post in this forum, been following it for almost a year now
i hve a query same as above, every racquet has some info like 3U, G4 which i do understand only thing is, wat does 17-22lbs means, is it tht the racquet can hold only till 22lbs or its 17 on main & 22 cross.....

A good stringer can easily string that up to 24lb or 25lb with no problem. Some people have it much higher. The numbers (17lbs-22lbs) is the Yonex recommended tension which will be covered by the Yonex Warranty (against manufacturing defects), Yonex will replace the racket if damaged due to racket defect (if still under warranty period). If you string above that tension, it voids the warranty.

guys.......a question here.....now i using 27x27 , if i going to +2lbs on cross......so i should string 25/27 or 26/28 ???? ......or 27x29 ???

My pal said to string same tension on mains and crosses.
Where I think +2lbs on crosses. We all have 6 point clamp down mounting.
Which is right

when to a shop to get my racket string at m=23 c=25
i ask for 4 knots, he was reluctant to do it, saying whats the point of having so many knots...but he did it anyway
actually is there no difference between 4 and 2 knots for this configuration? if its 2 knots, will the main tension change due to the higher tension caused by the crosses?
anyway m=23 c=25 feels softer then m=25 c=25 which i usually do, whats the tension i should ask for to get the same overall tension?

whats the point of having so many knots
I've been experimenting a lot with this lately and I've arrived at the conclusion that 10% gives the least amount of deformation of the frame when compared to a blank frame. This is based on the amount of "shrinkage" when I release the 6/12 supports on the machine: my shoulders are only tightened to the point where the frame just begins to deform, and if the 6/12 come away with a tiny bit of resistance then I know I've kept the frame's original aspect ratio.
@xtorm, you should probably try 24/26.5 next time - on a 25/25 racket the crosses will increase the mains past their initial 25 so they'll end up more in the 27 region.

haha...yea 4 knots perfectly make sense to me
as aspected the tension is too low for my liking....goto live with it for 1 month then cut it and redo

how abt a racket with 20 main holes and 22 cross holes? same rules apply? just strung it with 24/26, it seems alot tighter then 23/25, which i think that machine is out of calibration..

The guy that I buy my rackets from is an experienced badminton player that has his own shop. (With this, I'll assume he really knows his stuff, or at least really well)
He says where the hell did I get the +2 lb pounds on the cross from and he said it'll deform the frame, I tried to tell him what kwun said but he said that's for tennis rackets only since they're larger and able to hold better tensions.
Does it actually deform the frame? o__o

erm....even the old uncle that were reluctant to do 4 knots for me says its better this way, it will remain really close if not same with the unstrung frame
