    I string my own rackets and for a couple of friends too. Stringing my own rackets give me a sense of satisfaction.:D

    I go to a shop as well. But I always go to the same shop and get the same stringer for consistency.

    yes,i do know them for 6 years and i played with the old man in the same team and same place.even our team mostly doesnt let him string coz his tension drop fast.but i really doesnt agree they do good stringing as i tried before many times.i think u doesnt know the difference between good and bad stringing.if u would like to try mine.i can gurantee it will be better.and one more thing i would like to remind u is that every stringing is based on the quality not the quantity.

    My point is that, I can go and say there are few people that can be called national stringer or even world class stringers for being in those kinds of tournaments stringing or have stringed up those players rackets. Does that make any sense? Of course not.

    It the quailty and workmanship of the string job regardless.

    I always go to a shop.
    Though I am looking to try and get trained to string racquets, but there's nowhere near me. I hope the uni badminton club will have a machine, then maybe in a month i could change it to do it myself.

    Do you know TopServe - 24 Burwood Rd Burwood NSW 2134
    although looks like a tennis shop, but they do lots of badminton stringing too.

    One of the best in Australia
