    Default Where to re-string in Singapore?

    I have re-string my racquets many times. It was done by a traditional shop that strings my racquets by hand. But what he gonna know what he puts on without any gauges? So i when to another shop that uses a machine however the tension is very weak by "machine" standards.
    So instead of trial and error, I hope some of you can help me and recommend me a shop please. Thanks Guys/Gals!!!

    The shops I recomend are:

    Music Book Room at Bras Basah Complex, ground floor. (Near Bugis, City Hall)

    Kemin Sports at Beauty World Plaza. (Near Ngee Ann Polytechnic at Bukit Timah)

    A shop in Sembawang shopping centre. (Can't really remember the name for the shop though, Byron will know this. And only the guy's stringing is good. The woman whos also doing stringing is not good.....)

    Keat Sports & Trading at the Singapore Badminton Hall.


    But my stringing is mostly done in the first 2 shops. Hope this helps!

    Please elaborate your style of play and what kind of competancy you're at?

    My good guess is that you're not to familiar with the technicalities of such stuff, so probably not too seasoned a player yet.

    If you're not too sure what you want in a string, try the Yonex BG-66 or BG-85 at 22 lbs. It should should serve most people very well.

    I am a hard hitter. Plays doubles and my partner and I adopt a front and back stance....I am usually take position at the back. When u say 22lbs thats for main and cross? I want a racquet with high tension.
    Thank U and Seasons Greetings !!!

    'Hard-hitting' is a relative term. As are most terms used here.

    Compared with most of my colleagues, I'm a very hard smasher. But compared to some of my other badminton buddies, I'm just average. Compared to the professionals, I'm just of passable standard. So which category are you in then ?

    Adopting a front and back attacking formation or stance as you call it does not make you any better a player/pair. Since in particular you mentioned that you take the rear most of the time. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS 'USUALLY AT THE BACK' . Its a dynamic game, you're either front and rear or two across. There's no likelihood that you're are in any preferred position in your game.


    If you're what you make yourself out to be, you wouldn't be posting such queries here.

    'High-tension' is a relative term too. To me, 25lbs and above is a little too high for me. 24 lbs seems to be my threshhold. 22-23 lbs is more than suffice for 95% of the general population. Though there are people whom I play with who go as high as 26-27 lbs. Most people want 'high-tension' for hearsay that its 'more power'. Fact is, higher tensions are meant for control rather than power. Since the pros don't need that much power anyway as their technique is so good.

    Also, it is only useful to take 'high' tensions on your strings if your basic technique and arm power has crossed the threshhold. If not, good luck when you start overstraining your arms.

    I think u have got a point there. Thanks 4 ur advice. As for the stance thingy....I agree with you but I honestly find myself in a certain position more often. Maybe is the ppl i play with? Attacking with the same style?
    I shall take ur advice and go string my racquet 22lbs and try. Ouch ! my arm really hurts....over doing the tension previously i suppose.
    Thank u again.

    ** Fact is, higher tensions are meant for control rather than power. Since the pros don't need that much power anyway as their technique is so good. **

    gladius, i agreed with your second sentence of the above statement of your but can u elaborate the first sentence. Like, how does a racket with string that feel so hard like a cardboard give better control of the shuttle?

    almost all stringers can string pretty fast now a days. but sometimes its a matter of luck. if that fast stringer just so happens to be loaded with other urgent racquets to be strung, dont expect any miracles. this is especially true with reputable/experienced stringers as they tend to get more business and are more busy most of the time. the thing is, eveybody wants it quick, but so does the stringer so dont have too high expectations on how fast you can get your racquet back.

    the best thing to do is to have reliable backup racquets that you enjoy using so that you wont miss your racquet too much. this is so though you may have to wait longer to get your racquet, you have the peace of mind that it is being handled by 'experienced hands', and that it should be a better string job.

    can try GALA SPORTS in queensway shopping centre for 4 knots..look for alan..the tension's very consistent as he uses a special technique to tighten the cross strings. watched him string my armotec 700 w forten ti65 which took abt an hour but the stringing's v v good..tight, consistent, string doesn't go out of place after smashing, racket's head shape retained..

    find chu beng good for 2 knot stringing..very consistent tension, but his strings r abit expensive and iso's will tend to get deformed(get fat )..

    anywayz, find that diff stringers will give diff feel to the racket after stringing..gala's 22lbs is equivalent to chubeng's 24lbs which is equivalent to 10 n 10's 25/26lbs..even tho they use the same electronic machine..and my rackets strung at sembawang seem to be more powerful compared to the others even tho it's w e same strings n tension..weird huh?
