Thread: Where do you string?

Since I have more than 30+ rackets here in my room, all I need to do is to string each one of them once, and I would just make the cost of stringing machine back already.
Also, I found that having a machine is quiet great because I can cut/string any string at any time I want. Great feelings and peace of mind!!

If i'm lazy i will send it to my fav stringer. Sometimes i would string it on my own.

C for me but am very tempted to learn how to string though but buying a good machine is much too expensive for me.

I started stringing my own rackets at a friend's house (he's pretty rich and bought a $1200 machine) and found that I not only saved money but that doing it myself was enjoyable.
I bought my own small machine and really love the fact that when I play, I know 100% that each and every string was tensioned with care .

Stringing self rackets is slow on money saving, but there is some savings. After years of usage, I believe the savings could be quite big!
Going to the shop is great on time saving if you are too busy......but sometimes could run into trouble because of errors and you cannot pick it up in the same day (in many stores).

If you are in SoCal, I highly recommend Alex Liang, a Coach at San Gabriel Valley Badminton Club. He's been stringing rackets for about 15 years and does a first-rate job.
I get my rackets strung at 29lbs. and recently have been in four unfortunate clashes. Two were minor, while two were major but in all four instances, the other person's racket broke while my racket was just fine. Their rackets were all strung at 18-22lbs., two were only one week old. My racket, my 3 month old MP99 which is all banged up.
I attribute my rackets not breaking to proper stringing and a bit of good luck.
So I think proper stringing is essential.

I get the shop to string it.
I break my strings a lot but, I also have my on and off times with badminton so, a stringing machine would go to complete waste at certain times.

i break my strings often, and pissed about paying so much money to the stringers at the stores. they ask $15 for labor.
