    the tension range on yonex racket is for warranty purposes. You can string yonex rackets 30lbs+ easily

    Most rackets can take 30lbs+ with a good stringer.

    1) if you read the label, you will see recommended tension. not maximum tension.
    2) yes, depend on model, most of high end racquet can take up to 28 lb in a good stringer's hand. however, if you want it higher than 30lb, the stringer need a good 6pt machine to do a good job.

    And the player needs the skill, the strength and healthy joints to handle the 30+lb tension.

    If u ask how high is the tension can a yonex racket take?For badminton,i guess it can take up to 40lbs..of course,if it's done by a good hand.If u read more articles in BC,u'll find that some pros strung their racket up to 36lbs.For example:The chinese tomboys,du jing/yu yang,he hanbin..

    Technique.
    Machines, even the electric pull and mount types, are not advanced to the stage of being able to make the small adjustments and details in the stringing process. Stringing involves etails such as clamping, aligning the strings, speed of pulling weaved strings, and tying knots.

    The problem for stinging high tension is not only regarding stringing the racket. Be aware if you brake the string, the racket head will most likely collapse. So if you want to play with very high tensions, have a few spares and have a scissor with you all the time. In case a racket did not collapse, cut the strings immediately when the string brakes. If you cannot afford it, use a cheaper brand...

    haha LOLZ! icic..anyway i got a problem here. my racket, Apacs edge saber10 has a small chip off at the top of the frame. the chip off is quite small and its about an ant size plus minus 1mm. i jus string it 26lbs and its able to take it but i was wondering if it could take 28lbs?? the label of the racket says the max tension is 30lbs. but since there is a chip off do ur think the racket max tension will reduce?

    so true... and stringing points helps too to avoid this.
