How can i tell if he is a professional stringer?
I want to try some new stringer shop..
however, how can i tell if he is a good/professional stringer?
like what kind of stringing machine is minimal or is a good stringing machine?
if i let say i want him to string 26lb, is it depending on his expertees or just depending on which machine he is using?

The key is the stringer him/herself, not the machine. A nice machine is...nice but not a necessity while good stringer is.

Recommendations from others could be to best indicationOriginally Posted by rayraymond
The best recommendations are from his customers. They are the best people to give you any indication of his skill.
A good stringer can do a good job with an older machine that he is used to.
Perhaps, he does not do such a good job with a newer machine that he is not used to.

Oh, just check if he has a stringing license / certificate from Taneepak. If not he might be an off-spec stringer

Majority can do it if they've done it for years. like any badminton player, it depends on the form... haha. If its a bad day, good luck on you 26lbs.

The key is not the stringer, his machine, or his shop, but how well is his string job. If the job is good, go back for more. If not, become your own stringer or look for a new stringer.
I disliked stringers who messed with my grommets. Because of that I became my own stringer. Now I have beautiful grommets.

Consult with your fellow players, especially the ones who usually use high tension. Go with the reputable choices.

Back to the real topic, just ask some of the more experienced player in your club (or where you play). They will be able to tell you some good stringer and some bad one too.

Personally, I am against stringing racquets without side supports regardless of tensions, because I strongly feel that everyone should insist on close to zero frame distortion, which only machines with 4 side supports can guarantee. There are side supports and side supports, but the best machines for badminton racquets are those with 4 side supports that can support only badminton racquets; second best would include those that can also string tennis racquets.
Ask a few friends about their experiences with different stringers. This will narrow your choice to a few select stringers and then eliminate those that do not use the 4 side supports.
