Choosing your strings based on your skill level
You are a regular player
Your priority is the durability of the strings. If you require strings that are resistant to wear, you should choose strings of a thick gauge of between 0.7 mm and 0.75 mm.
You are an intensive player
Your priority is power. If you require strings generate energy upon impact with the shuttle, you should choose strings of a finer gauge of between 0.66 mm and 0.7 mm.
In contrast to tennis, only multi-filament strings are used in badminton. The only thing that sets the various strings apart from one another is the gauge. The higher the gauge - and therefore the thicker the strings - the more durable the strings will be. The lower the gauge - and therefore the finer the strings - the more sensation the player will feel from the strings.
