    Where is the cheapest place to string my racket? Cheap as in low price in stringing labour and the string. I saw that Yumo was the cheapest of all the badminton centres in Richmond. Do they string well? Any places cheaper and strings well?

    Yumo's prices are on the lower end of what I've seen. The difference between official stringing places in GVA (excluding private stringers) is only a couple of bucks for labour. String prices differ $2-5. If you want to save a bit, buy string online and bring it to them. If you get a lot of restrings, buy a basic stringing machine.

    From my experience, stringing places in GVA are a hit-or-miss. This is from inspecting rackets strung either for myself or friends. The tensions are sometimes significantly lower than requested.

    I dont know about richmond, but if you just go across the arthur lane bridge, at granville and 70th ave, Tad is a good place. if you bring ur own strings, it is only 10 bucks.

    ... and might I add that if you do go there, you MUST specify that ONLY Gary or Hugo to string your racket. If you don't, you'll get the high quality Nascar 12 minute job! :crying:
