Which tension ?

The next topic that is difficult to give advice on is string tension. That's a very individual decision.

Some information and pieces of advise:

Many believe that the more string tension, the better it is for smash power. But the opposite is true. A lot of tension = more precision, but less bouncy. Little tension = more support to smash effortless, but poorer precision. And you can't have both. So you have to decide whether you want more control and precision, or better repulsion.

I therefore advise a maximum of 11 - 12 kg string tension at our level, not more. We don't have any world top players (not yet 😉).

Now about the question of how high the tension should be?

If you want support for your clear, it is better to choose a less high string tension, e.g. 9-10.5 kg.

On the otherside, if you don't need such support, a string tension of 11-12 kg is advisable.

However, there are rackets that can only be strung with a certain maximum tension, Most sensitive: very light rackets ("head light balance") with a thin frame. The specification of the maximum tension is printed on the handle or shaft of the rackets from higher quality brands. It is possible to ignore the maximum load and put an extra kg of tension. but with a higher risk to destroy the racket.

Here we have a useful link about racket testing and review. Curiously it turnes out, that factory specs not always are correct, and a racket sold as "very stiff" could even be "quite flexible". Or wrong specifications about weight or balance.
