    28 minutes is my generally constant speed.

    When I string my own racquets it might take an hour...can't help but turn on The Walking Dead, YouTube education videos or of course BWF tournaments!

    i saw it. thanks Ah_Shum for sharing.

    in one word:

    MINDBOGGLINGLYFAST!!!!!

    pure speed and technique, no shortcut. after i saw him weave a few crosses i ended up looking for my jaws on the floor. he weave cross like i "weave" main. it is as if the string just yield to his command.

    the video is a 2PTD string job. it started around ~8 mains (4 on each side) already pre-weaved. even so, i just timed the time it took him to do the cross. from first string insertion to finishing tie off was 9 mins. NINE minutes. even though the main part isn't complete, even if you add *my* modest 6 mins mains (i am sure his is faster) that already end up 15 mins. and i am sure his is faster too. so maybe 14mins?

    and there are no camera tricks either in case there are still doubters. the mechanics of all elements of the video looks fine, and there are also 2 person chatting along in cantonese in the background and those sounds like normal speed.

    this only shows that technique, practice and speed trumps everything else. we can talk about tricks here and there, but what matters is the technique and practice.

    i totally encourage Ah_Shum to share it here. in fact i learned a few things here and there from the video too! i am sure everyone wants to see it.
