    pitch higher not because maybe their machine not same calibration? probably pulled higher than you think. i wouldnt make a generalization because of a 1 off experience, but enough experimental replicates to demonstrate data significance.

    SBA stringing is pretty good. As for the Jurong East sports hall shop is a hit and miss. depends on who strings for you. strung there before and it kinda sucks as the same person has varying outcome.

    Agreed, Jurong East Sintec shop the fat dude very good in stringing, but not cheap in my opinion

    hi bros, you may want to to try Outstanding Badminton, Alvin Ng. Make a call to Alvin and he can meet up with you to pick up your racket(s) at your convenient timing and deliver to you at your convenience as well. here is the facebook home page for your ref.
    https://zh-tw.facebook.com/Outstandi...ore?group_id=0

    i've tried more than 10 rackets with him. good service at reasonable price. i feel the tension is very "balanced". he doesn't use any hook and he places empty racket on the stringing machine to start his stringing work. I like these 2 points very much though someone doesn't feel the differences at all.

    Hmm, tried many shops already, and my conclusion is... Jurong east sports hall is still the best!!! In my opinion. I agree that the pitch depends on the machine too as that guy uses an apacs machine which is not used in many oher shop but somehow, i can 'feel the string' in the racket strung by him, i.e., my control of the shuttle is better, i know it sounds weird and may be placebo effect but you get my point, I'm biased towards him lol! There's ,was, another stringer in queensway, not bad... (fyi he was a national stringer who strung for lcw before but too bad he went back to the philipines)but somehow i am less sensitive, can't 'feel the string' to the rackets he strung although I asked him to string a bit higher, like 30 lbs, whilst for jurong i strung 28 but seemed like the tension is so much higher than the one strung at queensway. About the string in jurong east sports hall, I have never gotten anyone other than the fat guy, I'll always stay there to wait for him to finish stringing because of the distance between my house and the shop and he's a pretty quiet guy, but if you ask him questions about string techniques and whatsoever, you'll find out how friendly he actually is! I agree that the price is rather steep but i find it worthwhile, the time and money spent, as I am able to enjoy my games at a higher level. Lol, it looks as though I'm publicising this shop doesn't it? I'm just giving my own opinion... I just want players in singapore to know that this very guy in jurong east sports hall is a wonderful stringer after all my different experience with many different stringers, and to those who don't mind paying more for enjoyment sake, why not bring your rackets down and try this guy? If you don't like his stringing, which i doubt so, you can always change a stringer. I'm not sure what his name is but he's in his late 20s or early 30s and quite plump and has rather big lazy looking eyes and... lol, i don't know how else to describe him but he's usually there so don't worry, All the best guys!

    (BTW, My review is based on rather high string tension : at least 26lbs, so I'm not sure if those who strings lower tensions can feel the difference or not)

    Also, if your asking why i go to queensway for stringing when i said their techniques are terrible is because my friend intro-ed me to this national stringer, and to be fair, i take back my words that stringers in queensway sucks because perhaps diff ppl are suitable for diff stringers, mine's definitely not queensway's, one reason is because somehow my string snaps very frequently when i string in queensway, how frequently? once per week which is 5-6 sessions and it was over a period of time, like 3 months, i used 12 rackets in the past, 1 bs9,3 bs10, 3 bs11, 1 vt70, 1 spira20, 1 mp99, 1 mp 100 and 1 sintec 88 advance grommet, and i have to string all of them almost every month, and the worst was during a badminton camp in my school, i snapped 9 string in one night!!! Bad experience, a nightmare actually, and once, when i asked for 25 lbs, one shop gave me 30, at that time, i couldn't even use that tension, damn...

    9 strings snapped is pretty amazing. World record I think 3 only for me.

    btw, how long does your racket last after stringing more than 25/26 lbs (as in, how many stringing before it breaks)? Just curious to know. If it last more than 5 stringing sessions, then I will be surprised. With good smashing power of course.

    I use the Indonesian Senayan hall technique for stringing.

    Hmm, I have never encountered breaking my racket before, not once, probably cos I consistently change my rackets, through trading and I don't use 1 piece of racket continuously in one session that's y I have several copies of one model in my bag

    Alvin of Outstanding badminton https://www.facebook.com/OutstandingBadmintonSingapore

    Somehow I find his stringing different from the rest I've tried. It seems to give me a more "intimate" feel of the racket. Try it and see if you can feel the same.

    I second that. Presently, Alvin is the only guy who I will send my rackets to string
