beware when stringing at queensway
went to queensway to have my racket strung today. wanted to go chau beng but shop wasnt open so went to a shop that sells a lot of racket at the one of the corners on 2nd floor to string the racket. when i got back the racket, it was a TERRIBLE stringing job!!! some of the strings was loose and some tight. told him about it he insist its like that. at 25lbs the strings can just be moved side to side by simply pushing with the thumb and when looking at the racket, many of the strings was crooked. he still insisisted that its normal!!!!
paid him took my racket, cut the strings and ask chau beng to restring( it actually opens at 230, i was early)
dont go to that shop to have the racket strung, their normal is abnormal!!!!!!!!

hey glad that you post this, actualy the shp i am referring to is a indian shop at the other end of second floor. he sells mostly badminton stuff. the one you are referring to is more towards tenis i think. ory for the confusion

Never heard of that Indian operated shop before....
Hmm.. are his prices good ?
The Tennis shop people do awesome restrings..... he used to string rackets for pros, including michael chang.
Anyway, I only trust a few people to string my rackets....usually players themselves....
Had a bad experience at Penisula as well... 24llbs felt like 20lbs....

The one you r saying is the indian shop?
My freind string there, he says that his stringing is gd.
Are we talking abt the same shop?

Heard some negative comments about Gala Sports, didnt had the courage to string my rackets there. Personally I do not string my rackets at Queensway because prices are not competitive at all (BG66=S$15-S$16?).

that's horrible stringing job u had!!! Maybe u should have cut the strings in front of him to make him realise that he did a bad job and u r frustrated! It'll be good if u can recall the shop name or unit number... So all of us will not mistaken it...

Has anyone tried stringing at Sports Interlink on the 1st floor near Gala Sports? I noticed that they do not stock any Yonex strings at all, seem that only Pacific and Ashaway strings are available.

shop name is chau beng. he opens at 230 daily. its next to the tennis shop. i string mine 68ti for 18. after the bad experience, price is no longer the main concern unless its like more than 5 dollars. 1-2 dollar is fine for a good job

I also kena this problem. But mind is on the 1st floor. The one that sells tennis and badminton next to each other. Most of them outsource nowdays. I gave up and decided to string myself. If you are at northern area, I can do it for you. Let me know. Chau Beng make too much money already. Always open late.
