Thread: Why +2lbs On The Cross?

I think practically anyone can play high tension for a few shots. But that would not be a good basis for people to claim high tension is good for everybody. The key to a good tension, high or low, is that sufficient power must be availble on tap irrespective of the circumstance - whether the player is tired or not, and whether the player can execute a shot in an ideal posture or not.

Do you read?
Do you even read my post? I said MIGHT! That is for you. Because there are people like you who likes lower tension than higher as they progress(?).

CD is the ultimate wushu master of badminton: less is more -> (imply) working towards 0 lb = max power .

Another day, another place, try it again on a new batch of players, including beginners and advanced players.
I do have the luxury of stringing 3 racquets of the same brand, same brand string at different tensions, to do these type of test. In fact I do it very often enough to say without hesitation that almost all players can and would prefer tensions of up to 30lbs.

Re : asking Neil to do the simple test.
I'm more than certain that Neil has tested high tension in some part of his badminton life. If he continues to use low tension then the obvious is clear. He prefers low tension.
So, Eepak. Get over it already.

Neil isn't interested in wether or not people generally (generally, so with exceptions!) like higher tension..why would he care? he interested in what's best for him...you on the other seem to think everybody would play better with higher tensions...
using higher tensions is not really a goal of life for everybody...it's not something to train for, it's conventient...

Most modern racquets can withstand up to 30lbs, and that includes fakes and Yonex. What has not come up to standard is the extreme quality range of stringers, including some who will crack a racquet even when stringing to 20lbs. Some even cracked the racquet at the 12 o'clock before stringing the first string.

Your machine can recognize a difference of 0.05 lb? My goodness.

PG-66 and PG-70 are much softer strings than BG-70 Pro and BG-68 Ti. If you use 24 lbs on the Yonex, add 2 to 3 lbs on the Ashaway to get the same stringbed stiffness.
