    clear one would be one of my last resorts since they take 2 to 3 days, with my tight work schedule i won't be able to pick it up for a week. Im looking for a place that can have it back to me on the same day or the day after

    Yup Tad's is very good at stringing. I mainly have Gary do the stringing on mine.

    I brought a few rackets and all done the same day. I've also watched him stringing them as well, appox 20-25 minutes per racket.

    $10 if you provide the string, around $22 without.

    Just to make sure about the price w/o string, call their store.

    stringer in Vancouver

    Vancouver and area

    I can have it done for you the same day.
    I've been stringing for many years
    I'll do it for $16 with yonex BG65 or $10 with your own strings

    FYI: each racquet has different specs and i'll string to each racquet maker's spec and the tension you like.

    email me if you are interested.

    Independent Stringers in Vancouver

    Hey everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and don't yet know anyone. I was wondering, does anybody do (or know someone who does) restringing in the Vancouver Downtown/Kitsilano/UBC area?

    I really need someone to restring my racquet and it would be great to find some people in these areas.

    thanks

    home stringers in vancouver


    Thanks azn_123 for the suggestion. I have heard of Tad's Sporting goods, abbies, rackets and runners, and sportchek.

    I am actually looking for people who do stringing from their homes. I have heard a couple people on this blog do a really good job and was hoping to connect with one of them. I just don't have any contacts.

    thanks

    Ray

    How is your three posts relavent to this thread title? Hijacking?

    Besides, not all Yonex rackets on Ebay are counterfeit.

    I believe you are talking about the infamous high tension stringer Pete LSD??
    You should give him a PM!

    I've seen his quality work and didn't fall asleep like some other forum members. :D

    I believe he's getting a new stringing machine too.. You should check out his Laserfibre MS200 TT thread to get a better idea of how crazy he is :eek:

    Hello DarthHowie,

    Thanks for the info! So Pete LSD just strings from his house then? How did you connect with him and how much does he charge? I would love to PM him... but how do I do that?? haha. I'm pretty new to this forum stuff.

    If anyone knows of other people with stringing machines and does restringing... keep the replies comin'!

    thx

    good badminton eqs.

    Try YUMO badminton center

    they've a good source of RSL and MMOA rackets. They're all pretty good, better than some yonex items on the market i would say.

    They've some shoes that are pretty nice too, and the best part is they're cheap compare to yonex and other brands.

    www.yumo.ca is their website
