Accordingly, what string tension is best for badminton?
As a general rule, you would need to have good strength if you wish to tie your string at 27 lbs or above. For average players, 22-26 lbs will be good enough. Over-loose string will cause the string bed to be too bouncy, and hence make the control of your shot execution harder.
Considering this, how do you use a tension calibrator?
How do you reduce string tension?
If the strings are difficult to play when the guitar is in tune, you can reduce the tension by choosing a lighter gauge of strings or switching to a shorter scale guitar.
When it comes to the actual tension, most manufacturers recommend stringing elastic materials like nylon or natural gut around 50-60 lbs. If using a stiffer string like polyester, drop the tension to avoid arm injuries.
The higher your string tension, the more control you’ll have while the looser your string tension, the more power. Here are the above tension ranges again, but adjusted for power or control: Nylon/Gut: 50-60lbs (22.5-27kg)
Yonex uses a classification of soft, medium and hard feeling strings and the best way to describe it is this; soft strings tend to feel more bouncy and stretchy, they feel like they stretch easier and hard strings feel very solid and rigid without bending much.
A 1mm sunken depth of the strings is the ideal tension for most players. If you tend to channel more force into your strokes, you will need a higher tension for your racket strings. For beginners, 22 – 23 lbs is a good tension to start with.
