    There are a few places that I like

    RSL at the Glen (KoBeng) - Can be too tight but just have a 2lb lower than your usual tension then it is fine.

    Springers is good too love the tensioning.

    As for home stringers,

    Steven - Regular at Monash Clayton just right for me

    Murray Hockings (He was an ex-australian national) He is awesome!!!!

    asking your stringer to do 4 knots to prevent your rackets out of shape.
    yonex company recommends all stringers doing yonex rackets should fellow with yonex stringing instruction otherwise they don't give any warrenties on the racket.

    for my personal using is 26lbs, if you like to get more tension i can help but some rackets are not strong enough, you will get some risk.

    Its a pity no one around will string 27-30lbs, and some don't tell you they won't string it to 27-30lbs, instead they'll say ok and string it to 23lbs, very very annoying.

    Who knows what tension my MP100 is actually strung at. My racquets from HK strung at 25lbs sounds much higher frequency than my MP100 which should've been strung at 27lbs. All i know is its above 21lbs cos my MP88 is strung at 21lbs for my sister, and below 25lbs, cos my other 3 racquets are at 25lbs. My guess is its at 23lbs, the recommended max on the sticker.

    A higher frequency on the same racket means a higher tension assuming you use the same string.

    In the case of a racket breaks during stringing, does anyone knows if the responsibility is on the stringer or the racket owner?

    It should be the agreement between stringer and the player. That's why I say "trust" is the key.

    There are a number of so-call stringers, who are careless or not experienced enough with badminton racket. However, poor racket condition and blind request of ultra high tension can also lead to racket breakage. It's hardly a one-sided call.
