    Woah... I just looked up if stringing at higher tensions (assuming you have the strength) would give you more power but I ended up reading an intense argument

    Soooooo..... can I sum up this thread by saying IF you have the strength, stringing higher will give you MORE power? (or am I also wrong?)

    in my opinion , why professional players can string up to 30 to 32 tension , because the way of hitting the shutters and the feeling must be there, if the tension of 30 and above be there too. Professional players . they do conditioning like going to the gym do weight training on their wraist, shoulders and legs, to strengthen themselves, so playing of high tensions no problem to them ..

    it's all about matching the stringbed rebound speed with your racket speed... it's that simple.

    In general, professional player trains everyday. So, their arms are much stronger than average players. This warrants them to go for higher tension and gives them the ability to last throughout the match.

    For those who don't train regularly, you will be a laughing stock for using high tension. After 1 game, your arm may be deemed useless. I wonder how many consequtive back hand you can do with high tension? Skill matters too. It is more of an ego thingy to go for high tension.

    It's a conspiracy.

    BWF told all pros to go high tension, thus we mimic them and break our string faster, so we pay for more stringing. (More money for badminton in general)

    /sarcasm

    Now that the jokes out of the way.

    Do not, I repeat, do not go high tension just because of your ego.

    I go 24lbs max(eager to go 25 soon), and most people that I know are on 27 and above.

    I found it especially humorous when a player weaker than me told "You should go up a few pounds, you should be good enough to handle it, since I handle those easily."

    I can't help but think "Why the hell you get such a high tension in the first place?"

    It's all ego. Just stick to the number that suits you.

    Just because pro's use Z-force, doesn't mean Z-force is the best racket. (From experience, I take my MP22, a cheap racket over it any day)

    Professionals use high tension and thin strings (0.66mm) because it gives them better accuracy. Power comes naturally to them. Their wrists are well trained while techniques and court strategies are miles apart from us.

    For me, i would have stringed to 30lb if i have the money. Since i broke my precious armortec700 at the stringers, i am more cautious with the string tension. Now, i only string max 26x25lb bg66 on both sw35 and volt80. The challenge to master 30lbs it is too tempting.

    imagine hulk-strength player like FuHaiFeng or Ko-sunghyun using 0.66 string @ 22 lbs.. and they're clear / lob with their full power.. probably reach the service judge

    Could be right and safe. But for me, not stringing highend racket with high tension is defeating the purpose of enjoying a glorious moment and sensation that I look for before buying them (apart from personal tension choice)

    agree. if you can swing strong and hard, then the faster high tension string will match your speed, and produce the best synergy between you and the string, resulting in the shuttle repelling at very high speed.

    if you cannot string fast like many of us amateurs, then a high tension stringbed will akin to a wooden board, you are not able to stretch the strings and the shuttle will no rebound well.

    It's the same story with shaft stiffness.

    When you sum you miss some points. For instance it have been stated that it is also about control. When playing at the net, power might not be the issue.
