    Default Can ti-10 3rd gen hold 30lbs?

    Can it handle 30lbs and still have a large % of not breaking the frame or the shaft?

    In theory yes. However, the majority of racket breakage are due to poor string job or poor usage (i.e. clash, etc). The higher the tension, the higher the risk to enhance such damage.

    Also, not everyone can handle 30lbs to begin with. Before string racket @ 30lbs, make sure you have the strength and technique to handle it first.

    The old version, the yellow model, the purple model - all can take 30 pounds.
    The worry centres more on the question: "Is your stringer up to it?"

    I have strung the 3rd generation up to 33 lbs X 36 lbs - adjusted crank though.

    Of my several Ti-10s, only one has survived until now

    The rest broke, not because of the 31 pounds, but from clashes.
    (Incidentally, one broke during a stringing job at the store.)
    At that tension, even a minor clash spells 'd-o-o-m' for the Ti-10.

    In my view, it's a delicate racquet compared to the others in its class.

    Yes, it is delicate. I only go for 2U 3rd Ti-10.

    My Ti-10 yellow one snapped with 26lb during a very mild clash of rackets. Normally, it shouldn't even cause a paint chip on most racket, but then my Ti-10 just gave in......

    They can always do it because they are sponsored. Breaking a few won't cost anything. Chinese players usually string up to 33-35lb these days, some Dans use 36-37lb. But for us, one racket is one racket, and they are not exactly cheap, it is really up to you to do it. Make sure you don't cry when the string snaps and the frame folds.

    1. They are pros and they are sponsored so breaking a racket costs nothing to them.

    2. Armortecs are very durable. Ti-10 on the otherhand heard quite a few have broken easily.

    3.Im poor which relates to 1

    In engineer class, I learned that MOST engineers give out half of its MAXIMUM. Which mean they recommend the spec are usually half of what it is really able to take. Therefore, usually a yonex racquet say 19 - 22 lb, we can go to double of that, well i'm pretty sure you'll break it when its around 40, pretty easy, because that's their max peek already.
    If anyone knows this is a wrong information please tell me. But yea, because the engineer people just dont' want to get sue so easily when they recommend their max peek performance to get the racquet breaks in 1 or 2 days.

    and yea I broke my AT700. It's not that hard to break a raquet.

    Just leave it in your trunk over hot summer days. And play until string break (which is easssyyyyyy I broke my string like 2 weeks after I left my racquet in my car for couple days) So, after string broke, restring at 30 or so. Boom Boom, break =(

    it's really all depend on how you treat your racquet. The most important is leave it at a cool temperture or at least around 70 is max. Anything that gets hot and cool down, it easy to be so called "crunchie"?
    Clashing racquets in double are just normal, on matches that you really want to win, then you shouldn't just let go of hittin the bird because you afraid you'll hit your partner racquet.

    Just to be annoying, I think AT series are easier to break because of their frame's shape, other are oval, and I think oval shape are harder to break

    Agree with gamepurpose.... Temperature is a definitely killer of Nanoscientific products...
