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.
Keeping this in consideration, how do you pick a badminton string?
How to Choose a Badminton String
- Every racket has a ‘sweet-spot’ on the string-bed; this is the area that gives you the most power and speed for your shots.
- As you increase the tension of your strings, the sweet-spot decreases on the string-bed.
Also to know is, what is the weight of the badminton racket with string and grip?
The weight of the racket is usually denoted by “U”; the smaller the number, the heavier the weight of the badminton racket. A good badminton racket usually weighs around 80g to 100g.
What string tension Do pros use?
Typical tensions range from around 40-65lbs, but most players’ tensions fall well within that range of extremes! Generally speaking, professional stringers tend to advise players to string their rackets as low as possible whilst still being able to maintain control of the ball.
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 backhand grip, also known as the thumb grip, is similar to the forehand grip except the complete bottom of the thumb is in contact with the 3rd bevel and the index finger is lowered down to a position below the thumb.
Check the string tension of your racket regularly. Usually, if you are playing 3-4 times a week, you should restring the racket after every 3 months.
