    His side supports are by far the best. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...achines!/page3

    *You rated this job two out of ten..............I agree..........,I rate my job in general,seven out of ten.


    *If I'm not sure what stringing pattern to do and what tension to go with,I usually study the grommets

    and think what the engineer try to tell me by the looks of it.You'll know what I'm talking about after fifty

    stringing jobs or so.

    *I think some cheap strings is essential to start with.I buy some cheap strings directly from

    manufacturer,like twenty dollars a reel.A minimum order is five reels,I remember.They make tennis

    strings and fishing lines as well.You can dig them out if you could just google a bit.I don't buy good

    and freshly made strings because they wouldn't give discount to anyone.They usually ship the strings

    to big company once they're finished.If you're lucky you can buy some new strings even before you

    see them on the market.

    Does this look normal for a finishing knot? Seems to do the job ok!

    I'm sorry - I couldn't see any knot. I only saw the unused grommet!

    Back on topic, as long as it doesn't sink into the hole, it's fine.

    I'll write to Victor and tell them to stop putting unnecessary extra holes in their frames

    Haha, that's a cool statement. Until you see some other funny frame like Head

    Freshly strung vs no strings. Maybe 2mm shorter. And very flat at the top. I use a rough interpretation of Haribito.

    There's a cross missing at the top...

    You might avoid the flat top if you do a top-down - my rackets tend to lose their "corners" at first, but they regain their shape after a few hours' play.

    Thanks Mark. Technically there's a Cross missing off the bottom too. Currently doing as many as looks OK without adding too many, for minimal air resistance. Is this bad practice? My main concern was the shape, I think it's OK though.

    I started from about 4/5th cross down, I thought this would count as top down. I'll do a traditional 2PTD on the next Carlton.

    Not as far as frame stress goes, but you're going to see more top-cross breakages than usual.

    As far as shape goes, 1-2 mm of shortening is fine.

    Hey Guys,

    I have been stringing for a while now (3+ Years). I thought I would share some of the rackets I recently did.

    I used to work at a Sportchek, where the tech taught me how to string. After, I started to develop my own ways of stringing. The fastest I ever strung a badminton racket was roughly 28 minutes (Average about 35 mins).

    Lucky for me, the Sportchek where I worked moved and got a new machine. In turn, I was able to take their old one and just string at home.

    I use a Prince Neos 1000 with MBS flying clamps to do all my stringing jobs.

    Heres a few images of the rackets I did recently:

    Neat! And for sharing.

    The tails in your last picture, pointing every which way. Is it just me that doesn't like that?

    It was the result of the way I used to tie off. I went through about 4 different ways of tying, then I finally found a weird way that works very well.

    No, it irritates me something fierce. I use the AK knot with a half hitch afterwards, and my tails always sit against the frame and don't pull in, even after months of use.

    My other peeve is cross overs outside the frame, at shared grommets. If possible if a cross string goes under or over the main at one shared grommet, then i like it to do the same at the next.

    I also don't like the cross overs outside the frame, I prefer them to sit on the same side i.e. over or under the string on the shared grommet, not actually sure if there is any difference in overall string job with the cross overs

    Is the AK Knot with a half hitch not really bulky even though the tail sits against the frame?

    I currently just use a starting clamp and then tie off after using a finishing knot
