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?

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.
