    You can get any string from online stores cheaper than at your local shop.

    You can buy the string online and give it to your regular stringer to put on your racket. Your stringer will charge you for labor only.

    I know, but labour is expensive already, so might as well just buy the string from them too

    Oh, labor is expensive, how much? just curious.
    The string labor in my area is around $5-$10 USD.
    I personally charge $7.00 for labor.
    No One in your badminton club strings rackets?

    My club has at least 10 players that can string rackets, I guess we're spoiled. Some of them even charge only $5.00 to string rackets.

    I dunno if any players at my club do string, some probally do, but I personally prefer getting it done professionaly at the shop, just gives me more piece of mind. I'm not exactly sure about the labour costs, but there expensive, I mean BG-65 with labour is 20 bucks already so you can already imagine.

    A BG-65 string job at a badminton shop here in Van is also $20. Labour only is $10-12. You can get BG-65 in Toronto for only $5.40 (see www.mjstrings.ca). So it'll only cost you $15.40-17.40 if you bring your own BG-65. You can get NBG95 for $11 so total will only be $21-23 and you save between $5-7 if you bring your own string. You both save and can get the string that you really want if you bring your own string.

    Alrite, I'm getting it strung tommorow but still haven't made my decision, however, I will not be supplying the strings to the stringer, so it would have to be Yonex strings, and as I said before, I'm somewhat of a hard hitter looking for a string with the repulsion of BG-80 but with a better durabilty. The three choices i'd consider are BG-80/85 and NBG-95, can someone just choose for me? cause I can't

    Well, I went to drop off my racket today at the local shop, was thinking of getting Nanogy 95, but the shop didn't have any left and the owner said the next shipment of them would be next week. So now I didn't know what to get. So the owner and I started to talk. he asked me what kind of player I am and what I'm looking for in a string. I told him I'm a power hitter looking for a string that would hold tension pretty well and has decent durabilty. He recommended me the BG-70 PRO (got it in blue by the way ). I don't know much about this string. Do you guys think I'll like this string if BG-80 is a string I love? Also, would it be hard to adapt to this string?
