    Don't bother PeteLSD unless you can handle 25lbs or above. He does great work, but needs constant challenge to motivate him.

    I hear you there wood_22_chuck..... My abbies stringing losened up very quickly 2 times in a row. Same racquet, same tension at Tads, held up for much longer (on the order of weeks). Maybe abbies's stringer's knots aren't very good.

    Tad's is just an awesome store. They often deviate from sticker price like yesterday I bought a tube of mavis 300 for $12 when the sticker price was $13.95 ! They have lots of sales too.

    There's also a 10% discount at Tad's if you're a Vancouver Racquets Club member. I believe it covers only shoes and racquets, but they extend the discount to me for some grips the last time I was there.

    Let Gary from Tad's string it up - He's also part of the American Badminton Stringing Association as well.

    I heard more about Abbies from Tad's since this was brought up and wanted to find out more. Their strining machine is not reliable since it's not calibrated properly which can explain the tentions and it was also a second hand machine. Also about the breakage, they were not mounting the rackets properly.

    Default Prince Badminton Racquets

    Hi!

    I was wondering where I would be able to find Prince Badminton Racquets in Vancouver BC, precisely the M+ 87 or the TT Beast.

    If you could include address, phone# and website(if possible)/email, that would be great!

    Thanks!
