shop, although I wouldn't mind learning to string if I ever have the time.

Not many shops perform badminton restringing here in Sydney, but at least I can trust a few friends who can do that (although there are no guarantees as one of my rackets were returned with a slight crack!!!)
Also tried to learn how to restring, maybe it's just my brain capacity or just due to the quick lesson or perhaps even the instructor's way of explaining things, the process seemed quite complex to me...

String rackets while watching baddy VCD is a great combination for me.

The cost of a stringing machine is too high..otherwise..i'd be stringing too. Sure it may take a lot of time, but it's something I'd like to try.

If u r a hard hitter, and require re-string at least once a month, u might consider a lower end string machine, as it will save in a long run. If u can collect a little bit "business" within the local club(s), u can turn it into some profit within 1-2 yrs period.

What I'd like to is use BG 68 Ti...that is a nice string.
My sister also plays..so I can restring her racket as well.
$500 for a stringing machine...my parents won't let me get anything that expensive..even though I'm making money..
Yes I'm a hard hitter..so I should be sticking to BG65..which I have been.
I can try getting business..but I'm not about to compete against the local stores. Just not happening.

C: Always go to shop.
Recently trying a store, mainly for tennis, can also use the Babolat Sensor electronic machine for badminton stringing.
Good tension hold.

2. I am not talking about open business and string like 10+ racket per day like those pro shops. My side business is about 2-3 rackets per week from local club members.

Haven't voted because I do B and C.
C if I'm in a hurry, but B otherwise as it is cheaper.
Intend to do A, but am struggling to choose a machine.

Used to do C, was costing me WAY too much, so now I do A, and it's great!
06-09-2004, 03:37 PM #14
I voted for B... but wut if it's a friend who runs a shop? @@

I think B is meant to be cheaper price + convenience. If ur friend gives ur the above, choose B. Otherwise, put C and try to find "better friends".

We just got a stringing machine, so I know what the answer is

I always go to the store, i feel uncomfortable having someone string my racket at 27lbs. And i rarely restring, well maybe 4-5 times per year maybe? Just a guess. Though learning to string on your own has its own merits. I would probably end up using thinner strings and end up losing more money to stringing though
