    Default where to get racquet strung in downtown toronto?

    Hi,

    I am looking for a reliable stringing service in downtown Toronto. If you know a good place by any chance, please let me know. I want to know the price too ( I have my own string.)

    Thanks!

    now i've never been to the sportchek in the eaton center so i wouldnt know if it like other sportchek's buti know for a fact that you should stay away from sportchek, they have a reputation of being horrible stringers and do horrible jobs i wouldnt trust sportchek to string anything, soo try Browns Cycling and Sporting. their good their.http://www.brownssports.com/ their on Bloor street west which is not that far from downtown. i think its the closest place from downtown actually. if you take the subway get out at Jane st and turn left its like right across the intersection.

    Isnt there a badminton club downtown? Something like Sing Fai Sports club? Im not 100% sure, but you could try googling around for their site and see if they have stringing. I live uptown, and I heard about this club through a friend.

    If you play downtown i'm sure someone in your club is a stringer (owns his own personal machine).

    What are you looking for in terms of stringing (quality etc):
    1) a stringer employed in a store -> possibly honour racket or string breakage
    2) a local stringer -> usually the best deal in terms of $ spent
    3) what type of tension are you planning to string it at (above yonex's recommended amounts?)

    One more thing, on average local club stringers usually charge $10 for labour if u provide the strings. That's how much i charge.

    my machine:
    Laser Fiber MS200TT with double action fixed clamps. any angle drop weight.
    - I do not do rush jobs
    - turnaround is usually a week.
    - I string for fun (about 150 rackets to date)
    - Unlike PeteLSD, i take about 1.5 hrs to string a racket
    - i follow whatever the recommended stringing pattern based on manufacturer: Head (one piece), Babolat, Yonex are the only real unique ones that i can recall that i've strung.
