    Default Badminton Fixed Clamps

    I was told from Stringway that badminton fixed clamps are available but Laserfibre didn't tell me. It's essentially the same fixed clamps for tennis minus the two outer teeth.

    Yeah I want to get my head and throat plates replaced as well. My headplate only has 2 supports, and my throat is the cheaper one.

    I think flying clamps are much faster for badminton though... although I'm considering getting fixed ones for tennis and it'd also be useful for newer racquets where the last few main strings are really hard for a flying clamp to string.

    Pete, can you post some pictures of your set up, especially with a racquet mounted on it?

    Anyone else? Anyone with a Sensor Expert, Technifibre or ES5Pro.

    The teeth look very big. How can they fit when there's small caps in between strings, namely, the corner area at the very top and bottom of crosses?

    I will at a later time. Maybe when LB is here!!! LB, please bring your digital camera along . Mine sucks in the resolution department.

    For Babolat Sensor, we can go to Tad and ask Gary to borrow his machine when he is not busy stringing (I doubt he isn't busy most of the time).

    The tennis fixed clamps don't fit well at all. I use Yonex and Gamma flying clamps for every cross string.

    They can hold the stirng fine, but they're just so chunky they get in the way. It's useful though, when doing the mains, and you have to clamp the 9th and 12th main string.

    Very nice setup. One question, as you can see from the picture "racquet mounted" the tide off hole is blocked by the plate. How do you tide the last knot?

    Good question. If I'm starting the crosses, I would use an anchor knot to start the process. This knot can be slid down easily onto the grommet with the top plate on. When I am finished with the crosses and need to tie the last string off with a double half-hitch knot, I slightly remove the top plate and turn it 90 degrees and re-tighten. According to the engineer at ATS, he said that if the racket is completely strung and cannot loose tension, it would be fine removing the top plate because the next step would be removing the racket once it's finished.

    Good setup. Maybe also keep a nail cutter handy (but keep away from strings), it works much better than razor blade or wire cutter.

    Hi Malayali -- Thanks for responding. Here's a couple of views of what my "problem" is. When the racket is placed on the K brackets -- it doesn't touch the head/throat black pads. Is it supposed to?

    When Eagnas states suspension mounting system and 10 point support -- do they mean side and bottom support for the 4 K brackets (8 total) and then side support for the head/throat (2 total) for 10 points?

    I'm wondering if there is some adjustment to make the black pads higher. As a work around, I might find something to place on the black pads so the head and throat touch and rest on it...

    Thanks,

    Wayne

    It is not supposed to touch the black pads; It is supposed to be slightly higher and thats fine; You have to be very careful to give extra padding at the head to avoid "high-noon" disease.
    That is correct(10 point system)
    As far as I know there is no way to make the black pads higher;
    But then again, the 'key" to give lots of padding at the 12 O' clock position.
