    They are all competent strings and do a good job.
    However, in terms of customer service and friendliness, I would recommend Winning cycle.

    I find, if you don't speak Cantonese, Yo and Lee give you attitude.
    I agree. Winning Cycle is definitely very friendly.

    Oh, and by the way, be careful with Racquets Warehouse. Not everything has tax included. I was in a rush and bought some grip from them. The tag was 8.95 (which is already pretty expensive for yonex supergrap). I thought tax was included but it wasn't so my total came to around $10.

    little too late about commenting but went to max sports 2 weeks ago i beleive.

    Bought MP 66 for cheapter then what he listed on the website. (contact him for better prices)

    very nice service and clean and neat 2 piece stringing.

    note: it's not a full sports shop. Just small corner in a dollar store so it's little hard to find. Since he wont have everything in the shop call or email him before hand to try anything.

    Default Experience with Racquet Warehouse!

    Have been playing badminton 10+ years. Have had my racquet stringed by Yo's, Lee's and my badminton buddies. Visited Racquet warehouse last week because it's near the subway and convenient.

    Had the worst experience ever.

    First of all, don't be fool by the name it's not a warehouse, it's only the size of convenient store run by a woman of about 50ish.

    Charges 24 bucks whereas most other palce charge around 20, 25 if you pay credit card.

    The 50ish woman had the attitude like she ran the Armani Shop of badminton stores. First, She kept on questioning the authenticity of racquet (Yonex MP55), claiming it was a fake and I need to buy a real one from her. I told her I bought it in Sporting Life in Eaton Centre and I was there to string not purchase a racquet. She then called out this supposedly Yonex certified stringer to back up her claim. The expert said it looked real to him which ticked her off even more (I fear for this guy's job security).

    She couldn't convince me about purchase so back to the stringing. The conversation went on something like this:

    Woman: 24 dollars please.
    Me (a bit surprised since most other places are pay when pick up, since they have the racquet as collateral and it's worth much more than 24): Can I Pay upon pick up.
    Woman: No, You must pay 24 dollars now.
    Me: I have no cash right now, can I pay you upon pickup.
    Woman: No, You must pay 24 now.

    By this time I was ticked off as well so I questioned asked if they would fix the strings for a week or so, just so that if the strings break within a week. Most stores do not have warranties on stringing, but if strings break within too short a period of time (as I have experienced before), most stores would re-do it out of courtesy.

    This apparently made her angry and she said: No, we have no warranties, and if you don't like it, you can go some place that does.

    I said: Fine by me. You are not getting my business anway. Took my racquet and walked out.

    I went to Yo's and had it done for 19 dollars with good attitude and workmanship.

    BTW: The woman was obviously from Hong Kong, I am from Shanghai so I don't speak Catonese so I spoke English with her all the way.

    Lesson learned: Don't go to this place unless you are:

    1. Cantonese Speaking
    2. Willing to pay 24 dollars
    3. Bare with her attitude.

    You are correct that the prices for the racquets are good and competitive. I was talking about the cost to restring a racquet. For example the following prices for a racquet restring with the indicated string: Lee's charges $18 for BG 65, Yo's charges $19 for BG 65, Winning charges $19.50 for BG 65 all tax included and Brown's charges $20 for BG 65 (I'm not sure if the tax and service fee are included in the price. Can someone please verify?)

    Regards,

    Don

    P.S. I think this thread is in the wrong place, could it be moved. Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't consider Browns to be "good"! How about "fair"! But definitely not the best deal when shopping there!

    i got my racquet strung at winning cycle, coz i bought my nanospeed 5000 there, the string job was done very nicely, and they are very friendly, and since it's a small store, you can usually bargain with them to lower the prices...i got them to give me the yonex bag, the backpack style for like $10 off
