    Default tension provided by manufacturer

    Hallo to everybody
    I'll start with the question: last months I've played with Carlton Airblade elite with tension limits 18-28lbs, now I want to restring it at tension it was prestrunged by manufacturer (it suits me) - question is which it was - 18? 28? something in the middle?
    Thanks for help!

    It is a good question. Can you ask the shop you bought it from? If not, I will suggest 21X23lb because it is in the middle. A safe bet because you can adjust up or down next time when you restring.

    [quote=silentheart;858214] Can you ask the shop you bought it from?

    Not a chance In Poland badminton is not so popular, it's a problem to buy a string (few internet shops), to string I have to post my racket to another city, although I live in almost 1 million people city. It's good that sellers in shops see the difference between squash and badminton, but every questions... answer is: its expensive equipment so its very very good

    My guess is that the tension is only about 20lbs. Usually factory strings are not tensioned high.

    I agree with Sgbad. I think it should be 20lbs - 21lbs. Just try it.

    My guess is 18lbs - 20lbs for factor strings.

    I've asked stringer to string at 21/23lbs. We'll see. Racket should be ready in a week - I'll write if this tension is higher or lower than original.

    most likely 22-24 pounds on a carlton. Not that tight, but comfy i guess for everyone.

    I just played with restrunged racket (23lbs). It seems tension is a little bit higher than original (if I remember well how it was 6 months ago, when it was brand new). Original may be about 22.
    Other thing is I bought Carlton C-700 few days ago (tension like in Airblade - 18-28lbs) and here original tension is significantly lower. So... there's no rule...
    Thanks for advices!

    You have to remember that the tension is reduced over time because racket has being sitting in the shop for a while. So if the factory tension is about 22lbs at the time of stringing, when you use it the tension may be around 20lbs.
