    Post I am really really mad.

    On Monday i got my racket back from racket central strung with micro power at 22 pounds of tension. Then the string started to move around a lot when i did smashes and then one time the bird got stuck in the strings and my question is, is this normal, and i only did like 6 smashes.

    I gotten a shuttle stuck in my string before, but that was when the string broke on that smash shot. People were laughing because they didn't know where the bird was until they noticed.

    That's absolutely abnormal. The string job is not a string job. It was a sponge job .

    wow, this is the first time that I heard you can get a shuttle stuck on to your racket without cutting the string.

    OKay that is freaking weird !!! Get back to the stringer and get another re-string..

    22lbs is pretty tight already..no way that it can get stuck in your racket!!

    This must be one of the hand job (no comment) that stringer just tension it with hand, not machine.

    With the job quality like that, i will just ask for refund or store credit. I will surely take the racket to a reputable stringer to get the string job done.

    if its a true 22lb stringjob and the bird caught on the string bed without breaking... it'd be as imperssive as the vitmainwater commerical
