There's this girl with whom I became very good friend with. As such, she told me her father loves playing badminton too and that his father has a stringing machine and wouldn't mind doing free stringing for me (yes FREE stringing). But it's only recently that I broke my racquet's string and I gave her my racquet to string. A few days later, I got my racquet and i noticed her father strung 23 lines on the cross (1 more line on the top) when I compared it to my other mp88... Now the question... is it bad or good or very bad or ok? What are the consequences? The tension on that extra top line isn't that much I guess since i'm able to move it quite easily with my thumb (compared with if i try to move the strings from the middle). I don't want to tell her that her father didn't do proper stringing... it might hurt her feelings (since her father played badminton way before I started playing too)... and more importantly... she might never do free stringing for me LOL Anyway... here are some pictures.. send me your comments!
