    I was only tempted. Trust me, I have no need for a 40+ pound racket.

    If it's going to be strung that tight, can't you just use like metal wire instead of a poly string?

    ...so the Trinity with an Ultra 1 shaft stiffness (actually a bit stiffer) immediately came to mind.

    Anyway, here are the proposed specs:
    Racket: Trinity XTREME Limited Edition
    Weight: 86-90g
    BP: 295-305mm
    Material: Toray M40J (shaft and frame)
    Stiffness: 6.8-7.0
    Finish: non-reflective black matte

    Actually, metal won't be able to take the strain. It's not elastic and too soft for that kind of tension...at least in a strength somewhat similar to Badminton string. The tension is ~530N/mm˛ for a 44lbs .7mm string, more than most alloyed steels are able to take. When you hit the shuttle, that tension increases by a great amount as well....I think kwun once tried to string a racket with some wire, it didn't go too well^^

    as indicated by the amount the tension head movement at the 2nd mains, you are not getting full tension for the first pull. just 23lbs each.

    I do not pull 2 string for the beginning when I string normally. I did many small changes just to make sure it will work. If I re-pull the string will likely to snap. Question is are the middle mains are at 43/2 lbs? I am not sure but that's the only way I'll start this.

    yes. if you have 2 strings and you pull them with 43lbs, then they will start with 21.5 (sorry. i miscalculated 23lbs). then later on when you pull the 2nd string, it will add a few pounds but you won't get back to 43lbs. my guess is maybe you will gain back to 30lbs or slightly more.

    since you have fixed clamps, why not just clamp it and then pull 43lbs on just one string?

    It might just break it right the way. It's very dangerous.

    try clamping it on the next string instead. that will give it a small buffer. i just tried 43lbs just now that way and it held.

    you are living at the edge anyway.

    btw, that looks like a sweet machine!

    kwun can you please explain how you would do that? I use flying clamps and don't have a starting clamp yet but would like to know how to pull the exact desired tension for my first two centre mains and first two crosses.

    how many flying clamps do you have?

    i have a method that needs at least 3 flying clamps. 4 will be even better.
