    I'm planning to string a beginner Artengo BR700 with a Yonex BG80
    How much maximum tension do these Aluminium/Steel frames take?
    I plan to go around 26lb

    I think you're gonna damage the racket.

    Don't waste your BG80 :)
    20 Lbs should be ok. 22 Lbs max.

    Would you recommend BG 65/66 at 20lb on the Artengo then?
    Or any other?
    I'm mainly going to play doubles with it (against weaker players) and for strength training

    BG65 and 20 lbs should be perfect.

    I've had one of these strung at 11 kg (so about 26 pounds) for at least 3 years and it doesn't show any sign of damage despite seeing a decent amount of play and being restrung at that tension at least a couple times.

    26 lbs is almost 12kg... So not exactly the same.
    11kg is 24,2 lbs.

    I've strung a beginner steel Carlton racquet (with separate T-joint) with crap string at 30 lbs before and it held up fine on my 6 point mounted system.

    There are 2 major risks: 1) you break/warp it whilst stringing 2) the racquet gets an unbalanced force once the string eventually snaps, and it implodes your racquet head.

    Basically, once it's fully strung, it's likely to stay intact until a string breaks. Your stringing skill determines whether you get to the point where it will get fully strung (with use of additional supports/bracing beyond 6 point mount if deemed necessary), and obviously there is not much you can do once it's fully strung...unless you put it back into the machine specifically to cut the string :p

    So now i have a steel framed racquet at 30lbs that's likely to implode if i play with it and a string goes - good thing i don't play with it very often! :D
