    The best is Inskysport in Mongkok. Ask for Vinky. She is good because she learns well and fast. If you prefer a non-Yonex stringing pattern you can look elswhere. :D

    good HK stringers from my personal experience:

    Ah Sze of Luxis (near Jordon MTR station) strings very nicely, and will handle any tension.

    Mr. Keen in Aberdeen also strings very well. i have a few rackets i am using now that were strung by Mr. Keen. very solid.

    You get to make sure that it is Mr. Ng who actually string your racquet. His assistant may not want to string as high as you want to.

    His assistant's string job feels like 23 - 24 lbs even though I asked for 28 lbs. From the posting I read, Mr. Keen seems to offer "what you ask is what you get" type of string job.

    how can i make sure pete? just tell whoever in the shop that "plz let mr ng string my racket" something like that?
    it's a bit embarrassing. coz i don't even know mr ng.

    tell Ah Sze that his stringing technique is legendary (which is true to a certain extent) and you really want to try it... ;)

    seriously, i am not sure if Peter managed to duplicate the feel of Ah Sze's stringing, i have tried but failed.

    That is a problem. Mr. Ng isn't always around his shop to string racquets. Just mention you need a special 30 lbs string job and I am sure Mr. Ng will obliage ;).

    HIs technique produces good result but don't last long. I just go for the good old wooden board feel :D:D:D. You should try my CAB 22 at 30 lbs X 33 lbs constant-pull string job ;).
