What does "durability" actually mean in a badminton string.

Usually people adress the "tear resistance" when they speak of the "durability" of a badminton string. If you are a hard hitter, and produce a lot of off-center hits this is logically an important criterion when choosing a string.

Actually for most recreational badminton players, durability in the sense of "tear resistance" is in fact irrelevant, as they play with thick strings which break once or twice a year at most and are therefore worn out long before they break. Another aspect of “durability” is therefore much more relevant for them: How long the elasticity of the strings remains in an acceptable range.

Regardless of whether you prefer high or low string tension: Only fresh strings feel good.

The elasticity of the strings – and thus their energy – decreases over time. The stringster app helps you to monitor the loss of tension over time and to identify the right point of time to replace your strings.

Stringster also enables you to experiment with different types of strings, string diameters and tension levels – and to realize which strings stay "fresh" for how long.

Get your racquet a check-up with the stringster app from time to time – just to make sure you keep using them effectively.

The benefits you get from fresh strings:

  • better feel for the ball
  • more repulsion power
  • more controlled strokes
  • better shock-damping performance to keep your arm joints healthy
  • more joy in the game
