    I've tried hybrid setups. The performance gain is negligible, as far as I can tell. For me, a consistent string job with one type of string beats a hybrid 10 times out of 10.

    And if you want a Danish flag on your racket, use white strings and color lightly with red.
    No way to string it like that with different colored strings! Only with a laughable tension below 10kg, otherwise you run a definite risk of damaging your racket.

    My son did a string-job like this, as a present to a badminton-playing friend - he then put coins (the Danish coin equivalent to 1$ has a hole in it) on the strings. So he got a racket with a flag and a lot of money in it. Had to cut the string though to get to the money. The racket was an old, used, no-name racket, worth nothing. The string job was no more than 8 kg I think. It was only for the fun of it.

    Strange thing was I was being cautious obviously knowing its size, making sure no twisting of string and the string snapped directly in between the the clamp side of racket (one row down) and the puller also a good distance from the grommet (not in the position of previous pull area either)Previously un clamped string near top of crosses.
    Never had a string go in this manner, looked like break from pulling stress alone.

    It happens. Happened to me on the Bg80 once....might be a small defect in the material, which is of course much more noticeable with that small diameter.

    Does anybody know what string and tension that Nitya Krishinda Maheswari used in last few tournaments? I'm a big fan of her, and if some stringers here know about it, please tell me :)

    I'm more surprised that Carolina actually uses NBG95. Never thought that any of the pros would let this slippery piece of plastic even near their rackets. But okay... we don't know if that was an actual competition racket or only meant for training or testing(?).

    Why care about control when you're using a NR Z-Speed, right? ;)

    Most likely it means 25% pre-stretch on the machine. So the machine will pull the string with 25% added to the desired tension before calibrating to the right tension. So instead of 10 lbs the machine will pull with 12,5 lbs for a short moment zo stretch the string

    To be more precise the string of Vittinghus racket get tensioned to 36lbs, than reduced and calibrated to 29lbs and clamped to reduce tension loss. With BG80? Jeez, 25% PS is really heavy. Can't imagine how it plays. For BG65 really necessary, but for BG80? Oh boy...o_O

    Carolina play NBG95 for years. No bad news. This combination is the opposite of "Gefühlsecht":D:D:D:p:rolleyes:

    While 25% is high, he's "just" playing it at 29 lbs.

    So he stretches it to 36 for a second, then settles it lower, where as other players clamp the same string at 34/35...

    I can't see why his should end up more dead?

    Having only had access to PS for a short period of time yet, the hardest I've tried is 29/30 +10% - that was completely fine.
