Ok I hope this doesn't come across as a stupid question because after reading back, it does sound a bit stupid :-)
I've recently bought a racket restringer advertised as a squash restringer, but it only shows tensions for badminton and tennis on the rod. Now, I kind of assumed that the kilograms on the rod would apply to all rackets regardless of what sport it is, but the rod shows like a 13kg in badminton to be the same as a 31kg in tennis?
Now I've done a bit of research on what the ideal tensions should be for squash rackets but as I've no guidance on the stringer I just took a shot and tried to do what "felt right"... I'm quite pleased I managed to successfully restring a racket as it was my first time but I don't think I've done it tight enough.
I've had a search on Google but I can't see anything that could assist me in the form of a "kilogram converter" of any sort so I could get an accurate tension. Does anyone have any ideas as to what tension I should be aiming for reading off the tennis or badminton guide?
