    I wonder if the same advantages for tennis would work for a badminton racket.

    i doubt you can do that with a standard racquet and its grommets, i think the article refers to a specific type of tennis racquet which allows the strings to be string diagonally. any attempt would prolly break a normal badminton racquet, either during stringing or whilst playing ...

    so kids, don't try this at home!

    I free-strung my b100 steel arcket this way

    it's quite do-able...almost easy (2 shared holes at 12 O clock, 3 at both sides, that's it) just watch out how you do it...looks funny though...

    I ahvem't tensioned it, because it'd be a waste of my set of string (which is going into my SP-160...for the hell of it It'll look cool )

    the tennis racket is specially desinged with diagonal grommets, i wouldnt recommend doing this on a badminton racket, because the normal grommets will probably damage the string once its tensioned then break supper fast, so ur getting the oposite results that this is advertising, allthow its for the special tennis racket, also i have read people's review on the racket, and jugding by what their saying, it reduces power. so yah who would want to do that do a badminton racket? useless, also they all have tennis elbow, which isen't a problem in badminton anyways...unless u previously had tennis elbow, so i say, pointless. sorry

    would love to try this stringing technique out on a racket i can waste, but i do not have a 6 point stringing machine >.< will definitely not work on a 2 point stringing machine because the racket will cave in from the sides. also gonna be a hard fit for top and bottom grommets of a badminton racket due to tiny grommet sizes... =/
