I've decided to take a bigger dive into badminton and think learning how to string my own racket would help improve my understanding of the game. Was wondering if someone around the NYC area would be nice enough to share their experience of stringing and maybe show me the ropes a few times? =) I'm willing to pay the stringing charge, just want to learn how to do it myself. Willing to travel to your area , on your availability. I'm probably going to get a drop weight system sometime in the near future, or if someone so happens to have an old machine for sale =). I've been reading the stringing forums and online video's, but really i'm kind of more the social person and would like to take this opportunity and interact with someone rather than sit in the basement for hrs upon hrs trying to figure it out myself. Also, since i'm probably going to be just a hobby stringer. It would probably take a much longer span of time to get proficient if I had to reinvent the wheel over again.
