    Default My Stringer did a bad job !!???

    Basically when the guy "snaked" the string he must of missed and now there is one string going straight across 3 strings with out going up and over them

    what can I do now do i give it back to him and tell him to do it again?

    Ive still got the reciept, will he do it again without charging me?

    T
    hat is what i mean

    Also if he does do it again will he have to throw away this string and get a new one?
    cause i wanted it in orange but he did yellow? he must have forgot? but i didnt mention it when i got it cause i wasent really bothered

    Your stringer messed up. Go talk to him he should do it again for free. He needs to use a new string because the used one is now too short.

    Any stringer worth his salt should re string that again for no charge, especially is it's anywhere near the sweetspot.

    Just show him the part where he messed up. If he is any good he should see it right away.

    This is why I check for misweaves every five or six crosses. Well spotted - a lot of people don't clock this kind of thing.

    It will cause absolutely no problems if you play with the racket as-is.

    it is a misweave. he should redo the string job again with a new string.

    happened to me once in the old days when i have other people do my stringing. he was a reputable stringer but everyone makes mistakes. i showed it to him and he was apologetic and restrung it right away while i waited.

    He will def do it again. It wont play well, will feel different when a shuttle hits it.

    Yes need new string.

    Surprised if it is in the middle of the racket though, it is quite noticeable when you are stringing and rare to miss three.

    He replaced that one string, so there was a few extra knots, I wasent happy because there was still one string that was quite loose, he said play with it if you dont like it then give it back and i'll do the whole thing again

    in the end he did the whole thing again

    he is trying to do a half-ass fix and not the proper job. the proper job is to replace the whole string.

    Iwould take it back. Doing an individual string replacement ruins the whole string bed as in removing the crosses you will lose tension that isnt lost in the mains.

    It really is not good..take it back!

    I took it back, he was happy to replace the whole thing,

    He has been stringing for like over 5 years, his stringing equipment is older than me probably
