Racquet and Stringing Help Please!
currently i have two racquets both not very good. but i am not looking to purchase yet another.
my one racquet is a 2007 yonex isometric MF with factory everything still
the other is a black knight millenium from 2004 (old...)
the tension on both racquets are really low and i am wanting to restring one of them, i was wondering what one would be better. on my black knight some of the grommets are almost destroyed but i personally like it more. my yonex can hold 18- 20 lbs and my black knight says 18-28 lbs. i think on my black knight the tension is around 18 19 lbs. i was wondering what string i should also use, i like to clear, and smash... hard hits but i can drop as well.
thanks in advance. i know its a long question

Longest lasting string would be BG65, and string them at 22#s 'coz you'll probably end up with 18#s after playing a couple of times.

best feeling is BG66....
string at 22-24....
but the weakness of this string is its durability......
BG65 perform well at high tension ( 25lbs++ )
i heard that it has to be pre stretched before stringing....

You mentioned the racquets are not very good...guess 22#s is quite safe.

i think it should be okay.....
pre stretching means to pull the string before stringing, ( stretching the string )

You think if I use bg-65 with 26x28(mainxcross) is it ok?Well I want to try it on my new AT700(old) ... Any begginner tension on new racket?
Anyway will it gave any effecton my racket?Some people said as long as Im not mishit(its mean hit on the frame is it) or clash with opponent(is it means hit it on your enemy) ... have any other?And is it safe if Im using it on my training class?

in my opinion, AT700 is hard to use by beginners....
its not user friendly for defending, due to its head heaviness....
a beginner would not choose to string their racket up to 28 lbs....
it cause more burden to the arm... especially if they jumped from 22 to 28....
i think most beginners use 22 to 24 lbs for their racket.
but since u are using BG 65, then 26 lbs will be ok , as they will drop tension to 24 or 23 after a few sessions.
and yes when you do mishit, high tension is quite dangerous for your racket....
Pro's strung their racket up to 30 lbs because they rarely do mishit to the frame....

if you are used to 28 lbs, then go ahead, but if your previous tension is far below 28 ( eg 23 lbs ) then you should increase the tension slowly (to get use to high tension)
high tension means smaller sweetspot. maybe there will be a higher chance of mishit too....

i used to raise my tension from 22 to 25 then 27 and now is 28.
from 22 to 25, i experienced numb feeling on my wrist..... so i think increasing tension for high range is not really recommended.

OIC ... ... i dont really understand that high range ...

anyway ... you recoomended me to start from what tension(BG-65) .. then .. then ... ?
04-06-2009, 12:40 PM #15
means if you want to increase tension, preferrably to increase ab 2 lbs...
do not increase for example from 22 to 28 in a shot.
