    I'm with Laowai and dimcorner, my ZM62 usually drops by 2-3lbs (beyond initial post-stringing tension drop) before it will break. I usually have to cut it out actually.

    Just go for a 10 minute smashing session, that will break it....

    I agree with the mis-hits 100%. But I end up smashing quite a bit when I play and I don't pop strings on smashes usually. Maybe I'm just weak sauce and need to buff up

    Probably not. The string most people talk about breaking on a mishit here are Zm62 users. the .70mm strings should be able to take the mishits no problem at all.

    Okay, sweet! I wanna try experimenting with higher tension Last time I strung bg80 at 27 lbs it snapped after a slight mis hit, but it felt soooooooooo good when i was rallying and smashing with it D:

    Only problem is that to get the same feel as your bg80@27lb, you have to string zm70@30lb. Not sure if your racket frame can take it.

    it will not break
    .70 is almost like NBG 95 in term of thickness (even though I think NBG 95 is thicker)

    but you need to know that .62 at 27lbs is different with .70 at 27lbs
    you need to upped around 3lbs to gain same feel
    at 30lbs, your racket frame might be distorted (or even self destroyed) since it is being strung with a very high tension

    I needed up stringing an even thicker one its like .73 or higher so would that increase the chances that it wouldn't break on a mis hit?
    and in a way, if i string .73 or whatever at 27 lbs, it would feel like .62 at 24 lbs?
    MY RACKET FRAME WILL NEVER BE DISTORTED!! PP ULTRA PRO FOREVERRRR!!!. :>

    Nice theory, but I've tried some crappy .75 string at 24lb and broke it within one hour.
    quality overrides thickness.
    also, contrary to the name, only beginners like ultra pro.

    I dunno about the UPro comment. Dink did state that some coaches over there preferred the UPro over the rest of them. It's more of a playing style I think.

    Urameatball

    ahhh, was it ashway strings tho? ):
    I don't think UPro is for beginners, i think its stiffness and the head heavyness makes it hard for people to use D:

    No your racket will be not destroyed at 30lbs tension. It will also not be distorted. The sole cause for racket breakage and distortion at 30lbs is the stringer.

    Correct.

    Most if not ALL carbon racquets of today, EVEN the "crappy" fakes CAN BE stung UP TO 30+LBS due to the stronger structural integrity of carbon compared to aluminium and steel of the earlier days. There even was once a thread on a fake Yonex NS9900 where the would be buyer witnessed the seller stringing the racquet up to 33lbs and it DIDN'T BREAK AT ALL (explain that with all your "science" about high tensions).

    In my experience when I have asked unwilling stringers for my usual tension of 33lbs constant pull, there are mostly three replies from the stringers. The more positive or technically correct replies you should be receiving are:

    1. "I'm sorry but I don't think this machine with only 2 point support can fully support the racquet frame if I pull it up to that high tension."

    2. "I have not strung that high up and I don't think I have the experience to string as such. Since you are asking for such tension perhaps you have done it or have seen it done personally? You could definitely guide me through the stringing if you would like."


    While on the other hand the kind of stringer you SHOULD ALWAYS avoid are those stringers that give such reply:

    "ALL RACQUET FRAMES will break if you pull it up to 30LBS!! I have seen this and that professional player use our machine to do his racquets at 30lbs and break his own racquet! Do you know that the high tension usage is only a MYTH?! Tell you the TRUTH! LEE CHONG WEI only USES 28LBS! MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE!!"

    As you may have guessed the last reply is really full of BS and plain ignorance and the unscientific fear of 30lbs spreads like a wild fire
