    I stay in Punggol... where is the nearest place to get a good stringing job? I normally go to Sintec at Tampines but I feel it's a bit far.

    I stay at balestier, want to restring my racket. Usually I went to Queenway to restring once a month, but is too far for me. Anyone can advice on where to get the best restring nearest to balestier?

    Probably Bishan (MB Sports) or Ang Mo Kio (E-Link) if you hop onto the train from Novena. Cant comment on "best restring" as everybody's expectation is different :)

    I believe Sportslink at Shaw Plaza offers stringing service but not sure of the stringing standards and pricing.

    Went to gala at ground floor. Near side entrance to the shopping Center nearest to SCDF. The person who strung my rackets was Hartono. A nice guy and well experienced. Gonna test it out over the weekend.

    I frequent Chau Beng Sports at Queensway, but normally restringing requires 3 business days. Last Saturday, the boss was on leave, so I tried Paragon Sports on the same floor. I was lucky the machines were empty and got my 2 rackets done in 1 hour. Excellent job, if not better than Chau Beng. Free grip per racket some more.

    I'm bringing another 2 to Paragon Sports to restring later.

    Had my YY Arc11 and Karakal BN60 strung in 1.5 hours by Paragon Sports just now. Selected 2 Adidas overgrip. The young lady did an excellent job again. 1.5 hours because she had 2 in queue as I walked in ....

    Yes, a couple of times, the boss at Chau Beng Sports told me the normal waiting time is 3 Bus.Days. If you buy racquet from him, he'll string it for you in an hour .... I can see he has a lot of racquets in queue, and he has to tend to the shop as well .... but, I am a bit impatient to wait 3 bus.days .....
