    Slinging is illegal in badminton. So don't even suggest it.

    You are just carrying on with your usual line that anything that is good for you is good for everybody else. No doubt soon you will tell us that your t-shirt size is so brilliant that we should all buy the same size.

    There's no mystery to high tension. Lots of people have tried it. I tried it and rejected it. Undoubtably high tension is good for some people. But a great many people would do much better going in the reverse direction.

    But that's what you are doing; so, you are doing illegal activity in badminton .

    now matter how hard you hit, at 15lbs every shot is a 'carry'

    (I know it's a joke, but it might even be true, relatively to 24-30lbs)

    Can you imagine how the bird gets "carried" by the ultra elastic stringbed?

(or it might have been the PG66 at 16/18 also from Aug 2006)
    All racquets are Carlton Airblade AS-Ti (oval)

    All I noticed with the 26/27 was a difficulty getting a good length and some temporary soreness in the shoulder and elbow.

    I might replace the PG66 @16/18 with PG66 @ 26/28 for the taneepak

    Good, let us know how it goes. BTW, try to use less arm swing but more wrist snap and forearm. This will reduce soreness in the elbow and shoulder, and if done right will even increase the shuttle speed.

    update:
    I strung my AS-Ti with PG66 at 26x28 played a few games with it and found it much as expected.
    power (that I could get out of it) a bit better than the SP Nano 70, but less than at my normal tension range. It felt a bit better for drives, but not enough to make me put up with the power loss.
    It felt a bit better 2 days after I first played with it, so it may need a bit of playing in.

    Try to use more wrist snap by cocking your wrist bent at about 90% backwards with the handle held loosely, and then uncock your wrist as you hit the shot, which means your wrist will go through at least a 90% travel. The cocking and uncocking of the wrist must go through this 90% or more pivot. This pivoting of the wrist is added speed and will increase the swing speed of your shot-very crispy and fast if you get it right. It is like using a giant pair of scissors in which your hand moves a little when doing a cutting action but the blades at the tip-in badminton it is the racquet tip-move at an accelerated speed. If you find this difficult, another way to do this is to cock your wrist by bending your wrist foreward and then uncock it as you hit the shot.This will ensure an automatic wrist snap action, as you will have to bend your wrist backwards from its foreward position to hit the shot.

    Its quite obvious what's wrong. Taneepak is off spec with his tension suggestions.

    nah he's Taneepak..he'll think of something...

    the racket is obviously off-spec...or the gripsize is wrong..the racket isn't balanced properly..the buttcap isn't big enough..the paint is too thin...

    Well,

    Already he seems to be doing fine selling racket to people who want to prove him wrong by testing it themselves. He's Eepak. No need to worry about him.
