    Adding 10% of the mains tension for crosses?

    I string 2/3 badminton rackets. For me is 0,6 kg more on crosses the standard, not 10 %. Sometimes (and especially for my own rackets) i use 0,8 kg (~2 lbs) more. And as @Andl said, it depends on the 22x22 string pattern. I've noticed, if i strung mains=crosses, that the racket gets rounder and...

    Personal Stringing Note: on diminishing tension

    Full ack... Especially every string have a different elongation. Also some holds the tension better, some will stretch easier, some are stiffer, etc...

    Yonex stringing machines

    I have a ES 5 Protech and a Protech 8 Deluxe. Both machines are very good and solid. Never had problems with them. The clamps from the Protech 8 are much better.

    Proportional Stringing

    I've also tested the Sergetti stringing with my Head Microgel Prestige MP with MSV Focus-HEX Soft at 22 kg. Its really remarkable, that the racket came out of the turntable without ANY force. Yesterday i played with this racket and it feels very good. Wherever i hit the ball the feeling was the...

    Normally no problem. The Yonex company in your country should have spare parts available.
