One of the best strings for smashing on the market right now is Yonex's Aerosonic strings. They're the thinnest string in the world and have incredible repulsion power. For a more powerful smash you want a thin string with high repulsion.
Eventually, what is hard feeling in badminton strings?
Hard feeling strings give a good sense of the contact with the shuttle, they feel less bouncy and stiffer so you can feel the shuttles impact a little more through the racquet which provides good feedback for softer touch shots where you need to be very accurate.
Furthermore, how do you choose a string and string tension in badminton? During your initial playing days, lower string tension (16-24 lbs.) is useful as it leads to a bigger sweet spot and increased flexibility. For an advanced player, a higher string tension (24-30 lbs.) is ideal because it delivers higher control and better hitting feel.
Then, what string tension should I use badminton?
Badminton strings are usually strung between: 20-23 pounds for beginners. 24-27 pounds for intermediate and high performance players. 28-34 pounds for world class badminton players.
What is a good string tension for badminton?
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.
