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.
Also question is, what string tension Do pros use badminton?
Most factory strung rackets come strung at about 18lbs – 20lbs. At the high end, some professional players have their rackets strung in excess of 30lbs. For the majority of players, between 20lbs and 30lbs is normal between a range of beginners to advanced players, including some professionals.

Which string tension should I use?
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)
Snipping the strings is important because of the tension on the strings and the stress placed on the frame by the strings. When a string breaks, it immediately loses tension and the strings around it loosen up as well. This results in a string bed with varying tension that exerts uneven forces on the racquet.
