    Haha! As a badminton fanatic, I've trained my wife enough over the years that by now she doesn't bother me anymore when I practice my swing, practice my serves, do shadow footwork, etc around the house.

    Shouldnt power increase with lower tension?
    Next week I will test Mx 80 @10.5KG bg 66 vs Mx 80@12KG bg 66
    Maybe high tension helps me, too.

    Its amazing to me, that if you increase the length of the string by 2% you can make it only lose about 6% of it's initial tension.

    What are you doing to a strings' characteristics by pre-stretching it? My intuition tells me that you'd be making it less of a 'spring', essentially 'unwinding' it, but I have a few months on a set of non-prestretched VS850 that started its life at 25lbs and has now dropped and settled down significantly lower - yet no real lack of repulsion and certainly much better transitioning. Hrm.

    I have a packet of blue VS850 sitting here. Might try pre-stretching it.......but alas none of my rackets would look good with blue strings, so I might have to buy an MX70!

    Careful with the 12kg BG66. Only smash if you're warmed up and won't mishit too badly - Wednesday, I snapped my 12,5kg NBG98 after 35-40 minutes of play, and the NBG98 is a bit more durable than the BG66.
    I don't know about max power, I think slightly lower tension helps you there, but clears FEEL easier with higher tension. At least to me. When I had my BS09 strung with a 11kg ZM67, it felt...dull. Not much power, and feeling wasn't too great. Strung it up with a 12,5kg NBG98 and it plays godlike again. Smashes are of course not as powerful as with my go-to racket, but everything else was spot-on. Really tempts me to get another one (BS12 would be nice as it looks better, but would cost me 45€ more....and I'd be back to my old problem of having no back-up^^)

    You would be suprised how good MX80 looks with Blue VS850.

    Agree on the looks Will try white-white and red-red next. Maybe white-red and red-white too.


    My BP is measured to be abt 290mm on this setup. The towel grip is heavy or the vs850 is lighter.

    Towel grip is heavy. It also looks like you applied it on top of the factory grip, most people take that off (I apply an overgrip on the G2). The VS850 should be roughly as heavy as the BG80.

    Its on bare wood. Will measure the weight of the towel grip during the next change. BP was about 298mm when it was on victor grip. Wasn't expecting to be lessen by 10mm.

    WHOA. That's some thick towel grip if you applied it on bare wood oO
    Sure, that stuff must be heavy Just think about it - if the different grips have roughly the same density, and the towel grip is easily 1mm thicker in diameter, it HAS to change the BP more than the replacement/factory grip. Although your racket must be kinda light for the BP to change THAT drastically.

    Agree with j4ckie. Your bp should actually increase a tad when you use towel grip on bare wood, as the towel is a few g lighter than the factory grip plus an overgrip combined.

    Depends on how you apply it. A small amount makes a huge difference......for example, I regripped one of my MX80's using the same RKEP Powermaster that I normally use, but used about 20mm less than I would typically by just barely overlapping it, and the BP went from 295 to almost 300!

    But look at that towel grip - it doesn't even cover the cone, and it's noticeably thicker than the cone, even though it's applied on the wood....must be thick. My usual towel grips, applied on overgrip, aren't even that thick....
