2) Your "House" is one of the best and fastest place in LA. However, it is not "Usually" open to public. It is a better club than Score!
3) I want the official price. Did SGVBC stop stringing business because you just took over the stringing op?
4) Did I see the sign say "Will work for Bamboo"?

So, it is safe to say cost for BG65 = $20+-5 CAD or you do not have their price?

The only ones own physical store front are the big sports chains, and most of them have no clue about badminton stringing. Of course, my suggestion is "NO NO".

Thank you LB.
I would like to def non-"Private Stringer" as following all fits.
1) Do openly accept business (open or calling).
2) Do have a set price for anyone ask for stringing service.
Yeah, I think -5 for bad. 0 for OK and +5 for excellent.
Help me LB, did I miss anything?

The 12.50 labour charge may just be for if you supply your own string.
They might be a little bit cheaper if you buy the string from them.

i dont know much about stringing quality but so far it has been good. no major problem. and here in Ipoh, malaysia, if you bring your own string or if you buy from the shop, they will charge you RM5 for stringing. that would be about USD1.45 per stringing.
