    your best bet is probably tads
    they know what they're doing plus its cheaper
    but make sure you tell them what color of the string yyou want
    i didnt and i regret having white string

    Racket Testing: Rackets and Runners
    Grip: Tads
    Rackets: Abbies (basically right outside VRC) - on Main if i recall

    Stringing: Always used Abbies, but I don't really like their latest work. I'm going to switch to tads soon I think.

    I've used Abbies on main too, as well as Tads. There seems to be one guy out of the rotation at Abbies that doesn't do as good a job with the knots.

    Last I remember it was $22 I think for stringing, $10 if you bring your own.

    A waste of $22 ... I cut my strings as soon as I got home from Abbies (first and last time), and dropped it off at Rackets/Runners later that evening. Consistent quality every time, but at a premium ... $32 for Babolat electronic pull stringing machine. You won't be disappointed, unless you lament about the price.

    Tad has the same stringing service. You can request to have your racquet strung with the Babolat Electronic Stringing Machine.

    Really? I remember cappy went there but Tad says the electonic stringing machines are for tennis only. Maybe I'll drop by or give them a call to find out.

    Cheapest place to buy in Vancouver?

    Hey all,

    i've been reading this page for the past 2 hours and was wondering what's the cheapest place to get racquets in Vancouver B.C. The one place i know is Tad's and they're quite reasonable (but freaking far from where i live in surrey), does anyone know of any other places where racquets are sold at a good price?

    Cheers

    Hey Schubert,

    Welcome to BF and Vancouver! As for baddy stores in VAN, there's Tad's along Granville and 70th Ave. Racquets and Runners as well as Abbies carry high-end Yonex racquets and accessories. You could search the forum for the other two stores' address or look it up in the phonebook. Happy Hunting!
