    Hi coolman.....hope can be of some help after seeing your 2 posts. :p There are a few shops in spore dat offers good stringing n competitive prices for baddy products and perhaps they are also the few shops that are most popular amongst us here..... u can do some search using keywords (ie. classic, artric, besah, queensway etc etc) to read some of the pervious posts about these shops as it has been discussed a few times before. :D

    1) Classic sports at safra toa payoh
    2) Artric pacific at sembawang shopping centre
    3) 10&10 at bras besah complex
    4) Gala sports at queensway shopping centre

    The only other recommended stringer near Clementi that I know of is Gala Sports @Queensway - they use a computer stringing machine. You might want to try them. I use Kemin because they're more convenient & alright for me.

    Coolman, manual stringers are just as good, if not better. Most 5 and 6 star tournaments use manual stringing machines. And manual stringers tends to be able to help you string using PT method which enables you 25-40% greater sweet spots. Qualified stringers are equally good with manual stringing machines except that there are less than 5 in singapore who has the certificate. As far as i am concern, there is only 2 or 3 Qualified stringers in Singapore. Qualified means they got the Certificate from USA or Canada.

    Stringing shops

    Hi,
    I had tried all the above shops.I think 10&10 is quite a good stringer. The only thing the shop owner loves is: promote more of his ProAce n Apac rackets than Yonex.;) His stringing job is pretty good.:) The rest are only so so.....:(

    I use Kemin after finding them mentioned when i did a search. Am pleased with their service and find the tension consistent over the times I've restrung with them.

    More importantly, its next to a quiet access road so can stop the car by the road, pop into the shop to send/collect the racquet in 1 minute and leave without needing to park. ;)

    Good stringer

    Hi Slacker,
    How come never see u post nowaday? No more game ah? :p All yr friends on holiday ah?:confused: Classic Sport Mr Soh is a very nice guy. I just met him last week to buy some grips from him. Anyway, I still prefer to string in Malaysia KL Pertama Complex if I can. Cheap n good lah. Furthermore, in Ringgit lah!!:eek: Murah and bagus........:D Nowaday, seldom go there. So, Spore will do lah.
    Happy New Year to u and yr friends.;)
    Lee:)
