Tiger, forget the racquets, make us a string that is thin, grippy, and can take 28 lbs and still last longer than three weeks. That's what we all need.

Okay, let's talk strings.
I'll have four demo/proto rackets which will all be slightly different, but I need to string them in an 'average' way so that they're durable, well performing, and will provide a benchmark for the people trying the rackets out.
I'm tossing up between my current faves - BG80 and ZM67 - at something like 24/26 which I think is a good intermediate tension.

I'd have to say a good one would be ZM67 at 23/25 or ZM70 at 24/26. The strings are highly durable at any tension, and the tension selected should not be too tight for beginners, nor too loose for the better players, unless they play 31+

Not really aiming these at beginners, so anything over 24lbs will be okay I think.

Well then, if you're keeping beginners out, meaning at least high D/low C, then up my recommendations a pound or two.
So ZM67 at 25, ZM70 at 27. ZM70 is recommended if you're giving them to string breakers.

Whatever happened to these rackets Easy Tiger?
02-10-2010, 01:02 AM #112
Well everything is ready to go for the samples, I've just been preoccupied with other stuff.
At this stage I have no plans to commercialise so they'll just be for fun [read - "I have one-off rackets and you don't neener neener nee-ner"], but ya never know what might happen in the future.
Which reminds me, where the heck can I get black string logo ink from. Everyone seems to only have red.

I hope you have a nice large selection there. That'll be a $1000 consultation fee XD JK JK
I recommend Gamma if you don't mind heavy flow, the ink is the best quality IMO though I haven't tried Racquet Art Ink yet. The Babolat pen is really nice for badminton though because it has a much smaller tip.
Blue and White inks were the hardest to find actually. Now I just need to find someone willing to give away pre-made brand racquet stencils so I don't have to deal with cutting hard plastic. Though Racquet Art does custom stencils too.
