    That might feel too tight for him maybe? It's so thin one of the thinnest strings I know

    visor is most likely at a level where 24 with a thin string works for him as well as other higher level players. The member he is replying to sounds like they might be a beginner (my apologies if you are not) and I agree with you that for that particular string, 24 could def be too tight.
    Maybe a thicker string at that tension would be more appropriate for them, or say around 20-22 for the zm62.
    BUT caveat is that it could very well work for him at that tension, can only experiment until they find what works best for them.

    The AdiPower Pro has an oversized head so you want to go 1 lbs higher than normal.

    [MENTION=113172]emidyl[/MENTION] Haha none taken :)))

    I really am a beginner, but not beginner beginner or else I wouldn't really bother buying this racquette hahaha you get my point XD but compared to you all Badminton enthusiasts, I still consider myself a beginner :))) so yeah I will consider the AdiPower Pro w/ 25 lbs. :)))))

    My problem is this forum... from reading all these great reviews of rackets. :(

    But seriously, the XP70 is still my favourite... not because of cost, but speed, power, repulsion, touch. It's quite amazing. Whenever I use it, I can do shots with it that I can't with other rackets.

    Don't mix them up... there's the string adipower pro and then there's the racket AdiPower Pro. ;)

    But you really should try the ZM62, perhaps lower at 22 lbs. It is not only a great string but an amazing one for touch and repulsion. But for feather though because it's so thin. For plastic, try ZM65 at 22lb.

    Yeah, this is true... I'm wondering if it's still within legal parameters. Next stringing, I'll need to up it to ZM62 at 25 lbs.

    Hey visor I'm
    Planning on buying a VTZF for Christmas and should I try giving ZM 62 a go? Probably at a lower tension though, I haven't ever popped my strings yet unless this the durability is bad , I was going to put bg 66 ultimax on it but now I want to try ZM 62

    What's your current favourite string?

    I'd probably recommend ZM65 since you play mostly with plastics, but won't stop you from trying the 62, I hear it's really good :)
