Complete Newbie To Stringing
Hi, I've been playing badminton for quite some time now, recently starting to take it seriously. I've really began to love badminton and seeing myself playing it for years to come. So I've been taking my racket's to get strung by local stores and the money I have to dish out for it is just too much for me to handle. So I would like to pick up stringing. Now I'm a complete newbie to it and I need loads of your help . If anyone can help me start from scratch it would be greatly appreciated by me. Questions I have range from how do I start, to what machine I should get and what parts I need. If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

thanks guys, but my schedule is really busy and stuff with school and all the things going around. If i have the instructions on paper with some pictures I should get good. my budget isn't too big, and the Klippermate machine seems to be pretty cheap, but is it good? btw, where are you in Toronto, If I really do need a leson, i can get a hold of you

I'm talking about the Klippermate M140. Would this machine be good for a beginner and onward? I tend to string at 24-28 tops. For those Canadians, how much did you all end up paying with shipping and taxes. and any other stringing machines that are good with a low price tag?

If you string 28 + lbs, get the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus or the Alpha ShuttleExpress.
I am ordering the DC Plus . Mark from Alpha has two ShuttleExpress left in inventory, at USD375 before shipping.

If you want to see a demo session i can offer you one as well (downtown toronto), but you may want to bring a pillow cause you may fall asleep...and if you were to see Pete LSD string, you should also bring a blanket, pajamas, nite cap and your favorite stuffed animal

Master Pete, you must teach me your ways... does it involve any LSD?

And what do you do at 4:00 AM, Master Chris?

Nothing special about my string job, Master Kelvin. Master Howard, the Sith Lord, can fill you in the boring details . In fact, he was about to write a thorough report . . .
