Would it be better to use 40lb on my Carlton AS1 then?

Artillery shell and rifle shot is a bad analogy.
You're using different propelled items, rather than different propulsion.
Some shells fired from tanks are faster than rifle rounds
An ICBM can get up to 7km per second so is faster and more powerful than the rifle shot.
replace "more power" with "shuttle flies faster"
Do you mean the shuttle will be travelling faster, or that the shuttle spends less time in contact with the strings?
Is 28/30.8lbs ideal for everybody?
Is 28/30.8lbs ideal only for PG66 or for all string?

Nothing to loose and gains a tennis elbow .
So, Eepak has nothing to loose by jumping smashing and gains total knees replacement (TKR) .

As an experiment I did string about 3 identical racquets with identical strings but at different tensions some months ago. The string used was PG66 Neon Green. The lowest was 23/25.25lbs, the next was 26/28.5lbs, and the third one was 28/30.8lbs. I had other players try these 3 racquets, starting with the lowest tension first and the highest tension last. Almost all preferred the highest tension racquet, and some of the players were beginners or advanced beginners.
As a matter of fact you can use this progressive increase in tension when you string for others. When I string for others, the first time I would up the tension by 1.5lbs, the second time another 1.5lbs, and then finally going up to 30/33lbs if the feedback from them is positive.

Still avoiding the questions.
and I can get nice crisp sounds from low tensions too

Personally, i prefer the appropriate tension that match my swing.

How about finding out the old fashion way as I mentioned earlier. Pick out all the players you can get hold of and ask them to do a 'blindfold' test on 3 racquets, A, B, and C. All the theories about the pros and cons of high vs low tension are useless without a field test.
I have done this a few times with players of all shades, most of them strangers to me until I "imposed" on them.

We know some players actually do play better with high tension.
Professionals being a case in point.
If there was an ideal tension, why don't all the pros use the same tension?
I might string one of my own racquets with PG66 at 28/31.
Which of my racquets should I use? Which is ideal?
I might use an oval, so is 28/30.8 ideal for both oval and isometric?
I play in leagues where some clubs use plastic shuttles for matches
Will it be ideal even with plastic shuttles?

1) Sample size of 3 is too small to be significant under any study.
2) Given every thing are the same except the string tension for those 3 racquets, the speed of shuttle will be less than 2 km/hr during a smash. It makes no difference for good player. However, the angle will be difference.
3) As many post here suggested, ideal tension are different for every player. Yes, as you progress in skill, you might prefer higher tension over time.
