Actually I was thinking of getting my racquet strung at Paragon, but I am skeptical about it. And yea we can definetly meet up one day, either at BBC or NYBC.

Story: Nothing wrong so far and I believe they have a promotion where if you string your racquet (string and labour) ten times, the eleventh time, you can get a free restring with bg65.

Story: Does a very good job stringing. got my racquet strung there several times. all good except once they used 1 piece instead of 2 but other times used 2. They asked me what colour so asked purple or lavender but when i went to pick up the racquet it was white.... and very reluctant to go over recommended tension.
maybe should go to mandarin for bg 65 because it's cheaper

How much do you charge for stringing?
I've been wondering, how much do people generally charge for stringing? I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and I'm charging $15 for labour and $5 for BG-65 or $7 for BG-80s if they don't have strings. But then I hear the local store charging $40 for stringing with BG-65s and it doesn't seem to be that great of a stringing job too... is $15 too little? Thanks!

I feel $15 total for string (BG65) and labor is a good price. $18 total is a fair price if it is a good stringing job.

Around £15 pounds UK, for bg 80 and stringing, so nearly $30 us dollars. Quite expensive i guess

Cost for BG65 (local): $20
Cost for BG80 (local): $25
Story: Been here about 3 times. Nice atmosphere, service is good. However the string tension is quite loose compared to Sports experts( post above). Only problem ive had was that I asked for my racket to be done by the next day in the late afternoon and when i got there it wasn't even strung yet. I would of expected a call or notification since they asked for my phone number when i took it in the get it restrung.

name of shop: mandarin badminton club
cost for bg65: pretty sure its $15
cost for bg80: no idea
story: its decent, not the best, its definitely usable, but sometimes the job gets rushed.
i find that yo's stringing is actually accurate, good, and top quality, but his price reflects his experience. $18 for bg65 and bg68ti for $26.. insane..

Cost (include stringing or just the string,the same price)for
Rating:9/10. They provide the best stringing job in town.Good,standard tension.The only store that has the gut to string at high tension.While some other stores,they will just do it,but they'll lower down the tensions without informing u..or they will simply reject it.Sort of to minimize the risk.

usually here, they dont charge for stringing job. The price for string is including stringing.
