    thanks

    I think I have the information you need. It took me a while to find this nice stringing service too. Nice and inexpensive! BG-65: $15, BG-80: $17, personal string $10. I don't know where to find a cheaper one. He is a good player too. I met him at YUMO. I think he has good skill to do string, because he also do cracked racket too (not lower the tension, not bad). I hate to give my racket to those ppl who always get so picky on your racket's quality and find excuses to lower the tension. Some guys evern worse -- brake your rqcket#$%^&* He live in Richmond, here is his email benniejones@shaw.ca.

    yumo.ca can purchase online and pick up in Richmond. Pretty close to Tad's just over the bridge. Another option.

    Tads is pretty good aside from the fact that they don't have prices on most of their stuffs. When you ask for a price they will just utter some number at you. It all depends on who you ask, the price is not the same from one employee to the next so keep asking

    Yumo carries models from china/hong kong as well as the usual canadian market stuffs. So a good place to go if you are looking for the oversea version of something.

    Topline is new, they layout is nice, selection is decent for a store that just opened. Pricing is about the same as those US based online retailers. Just got my racquets strung there and they are as good as any other i've tried.

    It's been a while since I paid attention to badminton stores in Vancouver or the web. I use to buy from Tad's, but now I'm not sure if Tad's still the best place to go to. I've never heard of All-Court Stringing Before. Are they any good? Any decent deals to be found on the internet? I'm looking to buy the Yonex Voltric 80 and BG-80 strings.

    Sorry, I'm looking to buy new.

    Any reason why you prefer Topline over All-Court or Tad's?

    Because they're new they're willing to deal.

    Yes right now Topline is the best place to go. Tad's is not friendly anymore and All Court doesn't have the selection that Topline offers. In fact, i was in Topline today checking out the new arcsaber fb and arcsaber 11.

    I agree, Topline is by far the best I have been to. Knowledgeable, friendly, decent prices. The people at Tad's are awful for customer service and All court is small.

    I just checked out All Court the other day, and I liked what they had. The store is smaller, but they had so many demos! If I'm no mistaken, the other ones don't have demo's? I talked to one of the stringers there, and they were saying their other store is much bigger and will carry the racquets that the Bad Van shop does too.
    I bought an n50ii with nbg99, and i feel their stringing is probably close to the best in Vancouver.

    Anyone else been here?

    All Court Stringing store at Bad Van is a broom closet. Their main store is an actually store on Nanaimo St and 1st Ave area. It carries tennis stuff too. But the selection of badminton rackets is the same or less than at Bad Van. I suspect the stringing to be top notch cuz that's what they've been doing for a long time.

    Tad's has the most selection I've seen so far. Topline looks good but I haven't done business with them to give a good/bad comment.

    In terms of stringing, who does the "best" job. The last time I had a racket strung in Vancouver it was from Tad's. IIRC, it was Gary who strung my racket.
