    Hi BC members,

    I am part time re-stringer and still new. I have managed to re-string 6 rackets in this week using two knots stringing pattern and I found that it is difficult to re-string BG66UM than other strings because when I started to pull the string, the string move although i have clamped it using fixed clamp. My machine is yonex ES5Protech. I wonder what's wrong, is it because the string or is it because of the clamp ? I need advice from Pro re-stringer.


    Thank you very much,

    Obviously it is a thinner string (0.65mm) so you may have to adjust your fix clamp accordingly.

    I am quite a lucky guy because the owner of the shop is my friend and he needed re-stringer so he asked me to help him. Thanks for the advice from istring4you. Perhaps you can go the my friend's shop since you are from Singapore. :)
