    Wow, 38 lbs.... Didn't you cut your hands? I tried stringing my racket at 29 lbs once and I got three cuts already.

    You would probably need to find some commando stringer who dare to risk breaking your racket.

    Most of the stringing tension is between 28 to 32lbs. My fren who was the stringer for the tourney was telling me the max he did was 35lbs. cant remember whose racket was it.

    yeah... i guess that's only apply for tourney stringer...

    so far whenever i string in singapore they dont want to do it more than 24lbs.
    well, flymax lady willing to do it at 28lbs, but i doubt the tension she put really 28lbs.

    I have tried 28lbs at Classic sports, Toa payoh safra.

    But please note:
    1) you will not get any compensation if the racket frame breaks.
    2) you should have good wrist technique before you try 28lbs otherwise you may injure yourself or may hit half-court....

    oh well... I always know the risk. but somehow the stringer still reluctant to do it.
    and as i said in prev posting, the lady @ flymax willing to do it, but then again, i m not too sure whether it was really 28lbs :rolleyes:
