    I guess the indian shop you are referring to is newlink sports. Tried there before. Pretty bad experience in the service too. The indian chief keep staring at me

    String-ed at Chau Beng too. Good service but you gotta wait for your turn. Its more expensive too.

    So far the best is Paragon Sports (opp Newlink). Excellent service and they give free grip. If i'm not wrong, Yonex BG66 and a grip for $16. Pretty affordable considering a griip is $2-3.

    Are u sure? Coz every tried before chinese guy did restring for me at no problem. The indian chief friendly man. U may look handsome that why the indian chief staring at u. Most of the shop owner in Queenway like to stare at customers. Just keep normal is OK then.

    Yea Chau Beng does a good job, but usually there will be 10-20 rackets waiting there already. Cant usually get it on that day itself.

    Paragon does well too and will usually be able to do it on the spot ( 20 mins+) since it has a smaller regular customer base due its new presence, if i'm not wrong 3 years compared to 30 years for CB.

    The indian cheif gives me the suspicious stare leh =x i'm quite scared. HAHAHAHA!!!

    Actually Newlink guys are friendly...but perhaps maybe over-friendly to some who prefer not so enthusiastic customer-service...hehe

    Cheng from Paragon Sports (2nd Floor Queensway) has been my favourite stringer for the past 1.5 years, but alas, he left Singapore for good.

    An elderly lady is doing the stringing (Cheng's teacher apparently), until they find a replacement.

    Didn't work out so well for me... she put 3 or 4 scratches in my racquet, due to rough awl handling whilst trying to snag the string.

    Won't be going back there for a while

    Cheng left last Sunday, but his replacement is an elderly or mid aged lady? i saw a mid aged lady doing the stringing last saturday though.

    Both are doing it.

    The mid age lady is generally ok, but I find that her stringing is slightly uneven, i.e. tension is a touch softer on one side of the racquet face. It's the elderly lady...

    This evening i strung my racket at Queensway - SS Sport #02-39H.Ask Roland to string at 30lbs on the Yonex ES5 Pro machine.The result was good, next time will ask him to string at more higher tension.But they do not carry the BG80.
