    Default How important is the load spreader

    Hey guys,
    i allready ordered the mbs load spreader, but i think it will take some weeks before it'll arrive.
    Can i start stringing without it for low Tension stringing jobs? Sub 22 LBS.

    Greetings
    Alex

    Very important, but not enough to prevent you from stringing if you don't have one.

    I wouldn't string high tensions without one, but I do have to string lower tensions without it sometimes because it isn't compatible with some older racquets.

    Gamma makes really nice 12 o clock badminton frame support, I like it much more than spreader. Check that it fits your machine though...

    Try gamma-tennisversand.de

    You mean the badminton upgrade kit for 250? Gave it a thought but the price is pretty expensive ;-)

    No, just the frame support for 29, the one with three fingers. The expensive one you are talking is a quick mount that I am not sure all that usefull anyway.

    You also need the v-mount adapter if you dont have, the one for 7.56 eur. Otherwise the original tennis side supports will not let you clamp the string properly...

    If you have a damage like this, the load spreader is very important.
    I strung this racket on a tournament and the load spreader bent a lot...

    Are you saying it happened with the damaged load spreader on or did you remove it?

    ?!?

    The racket was already damaged as you see in the picture (other stringer damaged this racket). Customer says i should try to string it...
    I strung this racket on 10 kg / 10,6 kg (22 lbs / 23,4 kg). Normally i take the H-Load Spreader from Yonex, but for this racket i used the bigger load spreader from MBS. The load spreader from MBS bent a lot while stringing...
