    Default VIDEO: DarthHowie Stringing Victor Thruster K9000 + Ashaway Zymax 65 @ 25 x 27.5 lbs

    After sharing my string bed frequency data in the thread started by @visor http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...string-tension

    I thought I could share with the community how I string badminton rackets for myself and friends. In this video I'm stringing my own racket.
    Comments and questions are welcome.
    (I'm sure you'll notice some oddities:
    1. starting the mains with both fly clamps and fixed clamps
    2. using loose string to thread the cross between 2 main grommets-> I don't like using awls
    3. using tooth floss to help thread cross string through shared holes -> I don't like using awls)

    Stringing Details:

    Stringer: DarthHowie
    Machine Setup: Gamma 6004 + Wise 2086 + Chudek Side Supports + ToyoZouki Fixed Clamps (GM-02106)
    Wise 2086 Settings: Constant Pull & Prestretch 10%


    Racket: Victor Thruster K9000 (Dry Weight: 87.4g, Balance Point: 309mm)
    String: Ashaway Zymax 65
    Tension (main x cross): 25 x 27.5 lbs


    Method: 2 piece 4 knot, Top Down proportional for crosses (top cross strung at 22 lbs, next 3 crosses strung at 26 lbs, all crosses after strung at 27.5 lbs).


    String Bed Frequency (Measured by CarlTune App): 1252 Hz

    I was thinking somewhat the same but I find I get better repulsion with red string and better control with white.

    It's the only racket around at the moment in which white is the only acceptable colour, IMO.
