    Recently, there has been a lot of new information and resources posted on these very forums. However, I'm afraid that some of that information could get lost in the thousands of threads here, so I decided I could help out a little and consolidate all that information into one big thread, pointing to these different resources.

    Wow,

    thanks a lot for the resources :)

    I have stringed a lot of tennis rackets, but had problems with stringing badminton rackets. However, with all these good links, I finally managed to string a perfect badminton racket :)
