    hi all. i recently found an interest in badminton and would like to start playing consistently. im currently using an apac nanopower 7000 and i need to restring my racquet. i've heard loads of complaints from my friends about a shop in subang jaya ss14 name e-sports who restring their racquet. according to them, their string broke though they've only played one session. i truly do not want to experience this. hence, im asking if anyone here knows a good place around my area (sunway and subang jaya) to have my string job done?

    besides, could you recommand me a good string for my racquet as mentioned above plux its a good tension ? what tension isnt too hard to avoid having frequent string breaks?

    I got the same racquet like you.
    The maximum tensile is 30 for the racquet so i'd recommend a beginner to restring at 23.

    if your strings are strange
    and you don't feel good
    who you'd gonna call........thunder killer:D

    f.y.i. tk is a close friend of mine who employs a very good "string-er", in fact a very reputable one. But whether or not he's of any help to you, I'm not
    certain because his shop is in Kepong. I hope he notices this thread and comes by to share some pointers with you.

    I'll be meeting him tonight, and will notify him about your plight,
    but no promises.

    BTW do you know any racquet distributors in kl area?Im curious about their pricing compared to local sport shop prices and moreover sometimes sport shops sells fake stuff.

    As I've said we are meeting tonight. Sit tight at the momment, I shall have TK get in touch with you. Hopefully he could provide all that you need to know. f.y.i. all my stuffs from him are delivered by "TKL" (something like DHL) which I don't have to drop by his shop.
    Relax.

    Yes guys, keep him busy n ask more questions and squeeze the juice out of him.

    Anyway, take it from OBF; you'll never regret that your rackets are being strung by him (his sifu I'd mean, never knew he could string..:D)
    Also he has got a lot of rackets on offer. Myself, I recently bought a Fisher Pro at a special...very special price, but don't ask la.,:p he and myself close friends).

    b.t.w., TK, suggest u attach a site location of shop for the convenience of fellow BCers.:)

    23 is too much for beginners. 18 is best to start out with.

    Is there much difference with a 25 and 23?

    yes there is a much different of 25 and 23 if playing at 25 for your first time. im not sure if the strings will make a big difference i've only played with bg70pro and bg65.
