    Next time I will try the Proace High Performance type..
    it will be nicer if u use a better racket to strung it.coz rackets like impact,apacs,bedini and fleet cant be strung very high tension.maybe next time u try your pro ace racket.anyway thanks for trying my stringing and comment.

    A fren of mine is YONEX international stringer. He oways go to international tournament to string for players like Lin Dan, Chong Wei and etc......Is him good enuf to string ur racquet?

    can PM me for more info.....

    actually stringing skill is the same for most of the people. The main different is the machine tat they are using to string the racquet. I know got a team who use YONEX electronic machine to string all his customer's racquet. Thats the machine tat used by all international tournament.
    I would say that the machine is not as important as the person (stringer).
    I seen many stringer that do not have skill or exprience even few years of stringing rackets even if he has the best equipment.

    Good quality stringing can be done even if you do not have the best equipment. This is one example of the proverb "a bad workman blames his tools" and a good stringer never blames his machine.
    There are good stringer that have old machine and it work as well.

    A good stringer should have these few points.

    1. Willing to take the time to check your racket for cracks or damage to see it it can be string to the tension you request. Different type/brand of rackets have different rackets have different maximum tension specifaction. Age of racket will lower the racket tension tolerance.

    2. Check and willing to change damage gourmets. Having the best racket and buying the best and strongest string will not help if you dont check for racket's flaws and damage gourmets. Failing to do so may results in premature breakage of strings.

    3. Some Stringer so called "Professional Yonex Stringer" may be ONLY exprience in stringing YONEX Rackets. An Exprience stringer knows the different ways to string different shape/design and brands of rackets. And nowdays rackets have different amounts of holes for the string to pass thru. Stringing diection and using different ways to suit the design of the racket is imporatnt. And how many knots to use? .


    The way a knots is tied may also damage the string. Another thing is the way they pull the string thru your racket may be also cutting the string even before they pull the tension. Some use very fast and jerks on the string causing it to cut and damage the string diagional to it.

    Am i geting too technical??

    I have note that during stringing, some part of the string may get caught in the stringing machine and get damage. You may not see the cut or damage as its too fine to see.

    We heard of players complaning that they string break too frequently and most of the time is not because of their powerfull smash(as some may think so). Its more because the string is already damage by the stringer or by bad stringing or failing to check the gourmets.

    Ask yourself these questions.
    Will a stringer take the trouble to check and ensure the best quality stringing for your racket?. As long as he give you a reasonalbly good stringing and thats should be sufficent.

    You string break more frequently and you have to visit the stringer more often or the stringing is done so well that it can last longer and you visit your stringer less. Which will make the stringer happier?

    I have noted that some stringer even praise their customers for their powerfull smashes. wow your smash so powerfull ohhhh, 1 week break 2 string ohhh, you very powerfull la

    LOL.
    But stringers now are quite rare and thus they will be quite buzy and charge quite a fee.That's only my opinion btw.

    Another point noted, normally ppl would print YY with stencil ink on string. I will emphasize this by stencil it with:

    Tension: xx lbs
    Time&date finish strung: dd/mm & hh/mm

    hohohohoho~ hows that ?

    The address:- MINE STORE, No.18, Jln. SS2/2, off Jln. Balakong, Bandar Cheras, Bt.11, Cheras 43200 Kajang, Selangor.

    KFC = left turn at 1st junction right after Bt.11 traffic light. Maybank is easier to notice, which is right opposite KFC. When you reach Maybank, turn to your left and you'll notice the shop.

    No promises; say you're recommended by Ah Kong goh (bro. Kong in canto) and Elwin who plays badminton in Kong Ming, might get discount if lucky....good luck.
