Some badminton lover, especially the begainner, they like to string thire Racket to a high tension (over 28 Lbs). there are reasons:
1, they don't have a strong power, and want to use high tension to make thire strike more powerful.
2, they thing the super star strung at very high tension,(Like LinDan[37Lbs], Peter Gade[35Lbs]) then they want to do the same.
in fact, these are very wrong,especially the begainner, you will not get a strong power right there , even will hurt your arm and wrist.
why ? because begainner don't have a enought power or you still don't know how to pull your power together and shoot it out. so if you use a hight tension, like over 26 LBS, even you full swing, you will feel you never get opposite side backcourt. But if you use 22 Lbs, then you will found that you get amazing power and you can strike it to opposite side backcourt. don't believe me ? you can try yourself.
i don't want to say the reason again, you want to know, you can see my last guide.
Now, i want to say why hight tension will get you hurt. when you use a high tension, you will feel a hight vibration in the racket's handle, because high tension make the fack of racket like a steel plate, imagine,you use a steel plate to hit badminton, how much power you need to use if you want to strike the ball powerful? and when you full swing the racket, because you are still a begainner, do not have enough power and speed, you will feel strong vibration with your wrist and arm, if you keep play for days. will hurt your wrist.(i do this stupid thing 5 years ago, and use 3 months to recover).
Then why the professional player can use that high tension even 38Lbs ?
Professional player get a hi-speed when they strike, that speed and power can cover the vibration at all,so they won't hurt hiself.
Why they want to use that hight ?
like i said, high tension make the fack of racket like a steel plate,that's very good at control, more higher more accurate for control. and they get enough power and swing speed, there is no problem to strike backcourt and smush, so they like high tension at all.
Recommend for begainner:20-21Lbs for girl, 22-24Lbs for boy.
hope this useful for all badminton lover.
