cheap strings for practice
Im soon going to get my hands on an alpha shuttle express to string my own rackets and I have a feel questions to ask the wisemen on BC. (I searched, but to no avail. Unless my searching skills are like my badminton skills, poor. )
Im going to be practicing on junk rackets to get feel for things. My question for you guys is, where can I obtain cheap strings, like the ones you see on recreational rackets, the thick white ones.
Also what tension should I start with? These rackets are the aluminum frame kind.
Also, anyone recommend against using string tubing instead of grommets and where to get the tubing as well.
Any reply, (non sarcastic ones) would be greatly appreciated.

Another alternate is to visit the local badminton shop, and pick up whatever the cheapest for you. Overall, you just use the string to practice, instead of really use it. So, whatever the cheapest, is the one to go.

I have some demo string I can sell it to you. They are 2 packs of Gamma Pro 21 (21 gauge). $1 each + $0.70 for shipping. PM me if you are interested.

Thanks for the reply folks.
Are those strings similar to the ones you find on factory strung rackets? Im asking this in case I ever offer my services to rec centers.
Any comments on the string tubbing?
Thanks again folks.
Silent heart, you have a PM

Never to metion HQ696 was reported to have bad durability under high tension, therefore, in a long run of profit and reputation, stay with BG65.

I'm about to start stringing my own racquets and to practice I was going to use strings from existing racquets. If the string hadn't already broken, I would just cut it near the knots. The resulting string wouldn't be long enough to do the last main or cross but certainly long enough for me to practice with.
