    How about a genuine Cab 20 original (red), can it withstand 36 lbs (putting into consideration since fakes can take 30 lbs)?

    one question i have with string tensions is head shape oval vs iso, do iso racquet have more sq surface area than oval so would play softer with comparible tensions vs an oval. ie. 22lbs oval=24lbs iso

    If you search the forum thoroughly, there has been at least one case of someone actually stringing his carbonex racquet (not sure if it was the CAB20 original) at 36lbs ECP on the cross strings. From my memory he strung the main strings at 26lbs and reported that the overall tension felt like 31lbs while retaining the original oval unstrung shape. Some reviewers have said that the unofficial Yonex report states that the NS9900 3U can withstand up to 38lbs strung with an ES5Protech (as a stress test).

    The main reason why the oval head shape will have seemingly tighter strings is because the strings are shorter (so hitting surface area is also smaller in a way) at the sweet spot where most shuttles impact the string bed compared to on an iso frame racquet. Shorter strings will mean that the strings are at a higher dynamic stiffness level because a shorter string can not stretch as much (on shuttle impact) as a longer string which would be present on the iso frame.

    I have a racket with red ZM67prototype & it is a lot different. Rough texture & a lot of bite. Mark will know whether this is one& the same or not.

    i have noticed that ZM62 is not suitable for all rackets. it worked really well for my ARC10/AT700/PPPrecision/PPUltraPro, but not as well for Victor SW35/BS10/SP21.

    Any particular recommendation/thoughts between ZM67 or BG80 strung at low-20s (approximately 21 or 22 lbs)? I have read that VinningWolff (spelling) has played with the ZM67 at 20x21lbs and likes it.

    Currently using MP at 20x22lbs and looking for a fresh change and have marked these two as worthy upgrades/substitutes.

    For plastic birds, zm67 @20-23lbs is great... but at that tension too dull for feathers. Need 3 lbs more or so.

    I always play with feathers but I never knew there was (or need to have) a different set of tension for feathers and plastic.

    Now I have never played above 23lbs - but could a lower than optimal tension rob you of power (i.e. 23lbs may be too low for me hence try as I may, feedback is dull and shuttle doesn't go full lengths of the court and short of 'tennis-serving it')

    With regards to the above and BG80 or ZM67, what would be my next best course of action? Give BG80 or ZM67 a try at a higher tension at say 25lbs?

    Justin.

    BG-80 should be a seamless change from MP.
    I quite like both of them and I play at 22-23lb.

    I have played only once with Z67, and it didnt' feel great to me. Perhaps it's true what they are saying that it needs more tension. That being said, Z62 is lovely at my tension (although it has to be "worked in" a bit)

    Awesome - thank you visor and Fidget. Will probably give BG80 a go at 22-23lbs. Thanks!

    I think i found the perfect match for the racket string combo. Am currently using ZM62 at 27lbs ECP on both my goto 96 holes FZ Forza Ti-550. Superb durability and tension retention with the first racket string breaking only after 2 months of use and the 2nd racket string now 1 month and counting. The extra close stringbed not only provides better durability for the strings by having more strings in contact with the shuttlecock each hit but also simulates a higher tension sensation. Good enough reasons to finally give up my goto tantrum 200....

    It lasts if you don't mishit. . I had no problem with ZM67 at 31 X 33 until mishits.
