Badminton racquet re-stringing services
Why does string tension matter?
Essentially, the string tension will affect the kind of shots which can be players. In general, higher tension will give you more power in your shots, but you will need to have better control over your shots. Hence, advance players with greater control over their shots have higher string tension. The following is a rough guide for string tension.
Beginners: 20lbs - 22lbs.
Intermediate player: 22lbs. - 24 lbs.
Advanced Player: 24lbs and above.
Please note that your racquet frame may impact upon the string tension which is possible, without damaging the racquet frame. For example, if your racquet frame is designed for max tension of 24 lbs, you should not exceed this limit, as a higher tension can snap the racquet frame during play.
