    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.

    Thoughts?

    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.

    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.

    And Watdon UK has them too, no online listing.
    All prices in USD.


    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.

    I think its durability is better than Bg66.
