Need advice for my racket...
Carbonex 8400 Ti
the above are the info i found on my racket.
The racket was bought around 2 years ago.
i am currently still using the string that comes with it, its BG65.
I roughly know how to play badminton. I do sometime mis-hit when swinging to clear or smashing.
I dont have very strong arm. I can clear from my mid court to opponent's court out line.
can tell me what are those 2ug5, lbs and kg about?
is it true that BG65 loss tension a lot?
what string should i use if i were to restring?
Thanks in advance.

2UG5 = racket weight category is 2U, handle size is G5
as for new string, try either bg66 or bg80, string at 22lbs for starting.
as you move on, may experiment to higher tension or go lower if you find that 22lbs if too stiff.

trying to say??? the weight of the racket? or the tension for the string that the racket can hold without deform?
is it true that BG65 loss tension easily?
is it true that BG66 breaks easily because its 0.66mm in diameter?
there is a label on the BG80 packaging "Hard Feeling". what are these "Hard Feeling", "Medium Feeling" and "Soft Feeling" ???

17-22lbs is the recommended string tension.
bg66 isnt that easily break.
bg65 loose tension fast.....
hard feeling = stiffer string bed, more vibration
medium = medium stiff
soft = less vibrate
dont worry too much.
bg66 easily break, 1-2 months? try new tension, see how it goes with you.

You should try NBG95 since it has good power and last very long. The tension range is the manufacturer's "recommended" maximum tension for warranty purposes. You can easily go much higher than that with a good stringer.
If you look at NBG98 it has the same diameter as BG66 with 0.66mm but the durability is higher than that of BG80, BG85 and BG66. The materials used to make the string are more likely to determine how long the string will last.

Personally i go with medium feel because you do need a bit of feeling for the shuttlecock but not too much vibration.

6.5kg = 17lb
9.5kg = 22lb
i will not use the 6kg racket.....!
there is no say about good at high tension nor low tension, very very depending on individual preference. if you ask this question to Pete or master Dink, they will just ask you to string it at 32lbs....
any other recommendation, other member will advise......
do not worry too much.........
