    is not about time period that you'll eventually get the use of tight tension. It's all about you understand how to use it (technique) if you get the technique down, I don't care if you just start badminton 1 or 2 days ago, you'll get it. some people been play for a long time, but never really understand about the stroke, and doesn't want to learn or try he will never get it.

    I don't quite understand...
    you guys say the tension depends on how strong your wrist are right?
    cause when i was a beginner my friend told me to string it to 28lbs but i kinda got used to it..
    so is it also possible that you could actually get used to the string tension your using?

    One of the secrets that the pro players can jump high is that they do it on the YONEX special court which gives you higher elasticity than the ordinary wood floor. A little different from the topic but similar principle. And it needs some stickiness.

    I've actually heard that the special yonex courts are just a piece of plastic/carpet. The ones that I've seen here in Canada are just a thin plastic. The bounce from these courts comes from whatever is under them. For instance if you put them right on top of cement then they'll kill your feet. And most of the coaches i've talked to about that agree that wooden courts with the "rebound ace" underlayer provide the best bounce. Unless yonex actually makes a special rebound layer to go underneath the courts too? (haven't seen them though)

    Guys & Girls.

    Discussion done to death & there's a sticky if you want to search for it.

    General concensus after much thinking:

    Low swingspeed & High tension means you don't load the strings.

    High swingspeed & Low tension means the shuttle will leave the strings whilst they're still loaded & the stings bounce back afterwards with no benefit to the shuttle.

    Match your tension to your swingspeed.

    Swingspeed is generated either by good technique or brute force. Some beginners can handle a high tension because they naturally swing quickly due to muscle speed

    Some tiny "slight" girls have great technique & can literally "whip" a racquet head throught the air.

    Great strength & technique is what the pro's have. That & free racquets through sponsership is why they string their racquets to such high tension.

    Think of it this way...
    High tension - jumping on concrete floor.
    Low tension - jumping on a trampoline.

    When you have low tension, the repulsion shoots the bird out, but causes the direction of the bird to curve a few degrees, leading to less accuracy.
    Actually if you have a quick wrist, the high tension will give you more power as well. Think of it like this: you pull a loose elastic and let go, the whipping back effect is fairly weak. You pull a tight elastic the same distance and let go, the whipping effect is much stronger than the previous one. Thus, if you are strong and can cause the strings to ripple back further, the rebounding effect is also much greater.

    Ah that's a nice explanation
