    What's the best way to learn how to string a racket? I'm interested in acquiring an Adidas stringing machine and string my own rackets in the future.

    The best way is to read a max from this forum itself as well as hands on once u have your machine. But learn the theory first. here is good place to start.

    I learned to string two-piece watching various videos. I would also recommend getting some cheap string to learn with first. I wasted some string when learning lol ...

    I'm surprised at how many people go to a shop. I guess around the U.S. there aren't too many shops that string badminton rackets for you.

    I string for my family, friends and club members. If you are in Sydney, I am located in the Carlingford area. I do around 150-200 racquets a year, not a lot, but have been stringing since around 1983. If you are wanting to do your own stringing, I can teach you how to string.

    C. Always go to a shop.
    Personally I always go to ClearOne in Calgary, they have good prices just unless you bring your own string, they will use their reels which are the usual white, gold, etc... so if you want a specific colour just get it from MBS or something. Another thing about c1 Calgary is that the stringer there always procrastinates so expect him to delay your stringing. That's the only real problem. And he uses 2 knots method for all stringing.

    C) Go to shop for re-string

    I'm from Malaysia & I just try out a new shop located at ChaiLeng park,Penang..What a lucky, the shop's stringer was selected to Maybank Malaysian Badminton Open last week for stringing/guard player racquets especially for Victor brand one..
