    Unhappy string moving a lot

    Hello badminton lovers,

    I am new to this forum and I would like to say hello to you all.
    I have a question about the string. I recently strung my racket with yonex BG80 on my Arcsaber 10 with tension of 23lbs. I love the power of the string and all, but I have to adjust my string too often while playing the game. In other words, the string doesn't keep this shape for very long

    So my question is:

    1) Do you guys think that I am mishitting my shots a lot which is causing this to happen?
    2) Or do you guys think that my stringer is not very good?

    I have tried playing with my fiancee's racket, which is nanospeed 9000x strung at lower tension compared to mine, but I this doesn't happen when I am playing with her racket. What do you guys think?

    1) Welcome to BCBF.
    2) no you are not miss hitting. It is just nature of the string that it will settle after a few days. I will suggest you might want to go up 1 or 2 lb next time to see how it feels.
    3) WOW, your fiancee uses a NS9000-x? Damn. Is she kicking your @$$ too?
    4) Regarding the stringer, may I ask which shop it is or just a friend whos string for you?

    I'm in the same boat with a new racket + bg80 @ 22x24lb. The mains move around a lot. I will see if settles, but my intuition suggests it wont get any better as the tension lessens a bit.

    This sound funny but it work for most pple that have tried it. Use your sweat from your forehead or sweat around your hair to rub around the string. You will see the result after a few games. Hope it help to most of you.

    Hello SilentHeart,

    1) Thank you for welcoming = )
    2) I will try string it at 25lbs (BG80) next time, but previously I have used yonex NBG95 at 25lbs and had the same problem
    3) Yeah.....my fiancee can kick my ass....lol she got 2nd place on OCBC tournament when she was in junior high and I have only played for about an year so yea....she still kicks my ass....until I will beat her, I will never stop!! hahahaha LOL
    4) I always buy my racket at Raquet Edge in Walnut; it is one of Yonex retailers. I am not sure if he is a good stringer. Does anybody go here to get your strings strung?

    Another factor is that the racket has not been stringed properly. Generally the strings move, but it should not move such that it require adjusting almost constantly because it moved out of position. If that is the case - that is pointing to a stringer error.

    I have seen a lot of those and it's due to poor string jobs.

    saying 23 lbs is not helpful, i gotta know at least what type of stringing machine used. Was the ns9000x strung by a different stringer than your racket?

    I am not sure what stringing machine was used because I had to give him a day to string my racket and I wasn't there when he strung it. Also the ns9000x was strung by a differenet stringer. I think it was probably strung at least 6~7 months ago if that helps.

    as a start, no stringer would give u the exactly the same tension. U should find a good one and stick with him/her.

    Dont worry too much. It happens. Just readjust it. Even in tennis and squash.
