Badminton Racket Strings Guide
So how do you choose? Well there's a 4 things to look for when choosing.
1. Type of String:
A Power String, a Control String or a Durability String.
Look out on all our Racket String pages for what type the string is designed for.
Secondly pay close attention to the performance bars of the strings, we've listed each string in terms of how good it is by: Control, Durability, Power and Shock Absorption
Typically we would recommend a beginner player to look at going for a durability type string as they'll be thicker and hard to break due to mishitting it off the “sweet spot”.
2. What level of tension should I choose when fitting the strings?
As a general guide on string tension see the below table:
Control & Feel
Doesn't Last Long
Look out for what the Racket Tension Range is of your racket or the one you're considering getting.
Players often want to string their racket at too high a tension just because that's what the professionals do, falsely believing it'll mean they have more power. Remember it's HARDER to generate power with higher tension, this can lead to injury later, particularly in the shoulder if trying to force the shuttle faster.Full Badminton Strings Buying Guide
