    I love my mx 80, but the vibration hurts my elbow. Is there any way to lessen the vibration? Change string, tension or other ways?
    I usually use nanogy 95 @ 24-26, and then tried @23-25, but I don't like this tension.

    Softer strings, getting thicker grip, or even double gripping might help with vibration dampening... Don't quote me on that though. The MX80 HURTS when I hit the rim lol =(

Right off the bat Ultimax should rock - strings don't 'gain' elasticity - so if it felt wooden there's something wrong. Perhaps it was higher that 25? If you're a heavy user or are worried about tension drop, then you should consider the Zymax strings as nothing holds tensions like them.
    The stringer this time would be the Central Sports shop stringer - they offer free stringing on mx80 I trust they do a good job - or so they did so far on my previous purchases. Trying another stringer in my area is big fuss, expensive, miles to travel and I dont trust them anyway!
    Unfortunately there's no Zymax on offer, only NBGY98, BG80, BG80P, BG66UM - of the ones I'd be interested in...

    I will go for BG66UM@25.

    J4ackie: I had nbgy98 and bg80 at 26lbs on the mx80 and bg80 at 26 on the bs10 - all felt ok except for the nbgy98, quite planky.
    The higher the tension the smaller the sweetspot...
    It is possible that 24-25lbs is a threshold for sweetspot generosity on most strings.

    Actually I did, and the pain gone, but, I still love to play with MX80. Since they have different personality, and I can not stand the pain any longer. That's way I ask is there any way to lessen the vibration on MX 80, so that I still can keep playing with MX 80

    An example of a soft string and a thick grip would be BG65 and Karakal PU Super Grip respectively.

    Took it for a spin today and dang, this thing is powerful. The factory grip is shoddy though and it started moving quickly. Apart from that, brilliant racket. Smashes were dead on, no problems with placement and netshots are precise. A whole different world, considering I play a Zslash.

    I do feel my elbow though. I'll soon find out how that goes since next week ill be playing 4 days in a row.

    3 radius, are you suggesting that if I change my stringer than the vibration will be gone? sorry, didn't quite catch your saying

    There is the possibility that the stringjob is subpar and that the racket vibrates because of that. However, I would guess it's an issue with your timing or point of contact - my racket only vibrates if the shot is hit outside the sweetspot or timed incorrectly.
    Or perhaps you meant that the shock is hurting your elbow? In that case, only softer strings and/or a softer racket can help. Some off-court training can also help strengthen your muscles to absorb the shock better.

    I agree with j4ckie, it could be the stringer but I guess it may be more to do with your timing and technique. Off centre hit will product more vibration than a properly timed shot.

    Apart from stringjob quality and the player technique/physique, you can also:

    1. use a lower string tension
    2. use a softer string, e.g. BG65
    3. a combination of 1 and 2

    Whenry, my mx80 is curently strung with bg65 and has low tension. The grip I use is Karakal Kushy grip - one of the thickest around. Still, it tends to hurt more than my mx70 with bg66UM@25lbs...

    Arm strength is paramount - both for keeping your tendons in one piece and for utilising the full potential of power of this stiffster.
    I don't know if you do any strength building or not, but if you don't, have a go! It helped me a lot.
