    Do u adjust the tension for ur MX down by a notch or two perhaps? Or same tension as the rest?

    I found I could handle 1lb higher in my mx60 than xp70. I think that's down to the shaft stiffness rather than head though.

    Nope I don't Teddy. I have everything done at the same tension for consistency.

    (...reposting from another thread)

    Have a 4u TK-9ooo, found it too stiff n hard to generate power n unresponsive to ctrl. For two mths now, did experiment with ZM62 & 65 at various tensions.

    Just last night, first time testing TK-9ooo with ZyMax65 @26/27 lbs. To my surprise, the dull racket has become alive. It is more responsive n easier to generate power.

    Last nite was the first time experiencing TK-9ooo playing better than my usual 4u TK-6ooo (strung the same). Don't know if it's just me or the 0.65mm string. Smash, drive, net play... everything just seems better, if not the same, as compared to TK-6ooo.

    Now, am wondering why the same string with same tension didn't do wonders to TK-6ooo as it did to TK-9ooo. Is there a correlation between thin string n stiff rackets coz TK-9ooo is stiffer by a notch or more than TK-6ooo?

    Any word of wisdom is greatly appreciated...

    It may that for you each racket will respond differently to a particular string and tension. I found TK9000 came alive at higher tension. Whether that's down to stiffness, I don't know. However it played even better at 28lbs and I use NS880

    Perhaps your TK6000 needs ZM65 at higher tension of 27x28 lbs.

    Going thru ur review of both rackets, noticed TK-6ooo was strung with VS800, 0.70mm string while TK-9ooo with VS850, 0.68mm. Both at 25 lbs.

    Now y do u think Victor presented u the rackets with these set-ups? I'm having a wild guess here...

    Might test out ZM67 for TK-6ooo at same tension 26/27 lbs.

    No, that'll be dull, like ZM65 at 25x26 lbs.

    VS800 is a .69 gauge string and plays really well. Mark has been testing and loves it.

    It took a while to "wake up", but it's turned out to be both powerful and lively. And loud.

    Should be noted I'm running it at 33 lb, though...

    A thin string will always wake a racket up, as will a tight string. Thin and tight, and it'll be singing.

    Interesting you should bring up the TK9000... mine are due any day now, and I've got a veritable bouquet of strings to try in it. I hope it's not a plank!

    hm okay I have some findings about tension, pitch, and string density.
    Here is the definite information:
    BEFORE: I had a sharp iso, 96-hole, unknown tension, BG65 strung badminton racket
    I also had an iso, 76-hole, 23/25 original tension, BG65 strung badminton racket.
    The pitch on the 96-hole was one half-step higher than the 76-hole racket. The sharp-iso played like a very high tension 76-hole racket; it played very crisply with great power.
    AFTER: (after string-break, restrung the 96-hole)
    I have a sharp-iso 96-hole, 25/27 original tension, BG65Ti (difference between BG65Ti and BG65 pitch??).
    The pitch on the 96-hole was much, much higher than the 76-hole racket. The tension is much higher.
    CONCLUSIONS: Higher string density makes rackets play with seemingly higher tension.
    Pitches shouldn't be compared when stringing rackets with different numbers of holes unless you have a LOT of time to string and compare tensions.

    I guess you mean number if strings, not number of holes. Same number of strings with different amount of holes will neither sound nor play different because of the hole number.
