    ... and might I add that if you do go there, you MUST specify that ONLY Gary or Hugo to string your racket. If you don't, you'll get the high quality Nascar 12 minute job!

    wow..such nice hardware for such a ... lolz too bad..... all that just reminds me of that lot boy who worked at a nice dealership which had some nice high HP cars, and the day he took one out, he crashed into BC Hydro's lawn last year. Equipment was nice though!






    So make sure you ask for Gary or Hugo ONLY at Tad's ... RIP to those that left US prematurely.

    For others to know, Gary inspected the racket afterwards and admitted it to be the stringer (Ah_Shum) at fault. Fast, careless mounting and handling was the culprit. Is there really anything more you can dispute over this case ... just ask your boss at work.

    Since this is a non-warranty fault, Gary opted to replace the racket without hesitation. This obviously came at a cost out of his stores pocket. But its reassuring for all you new customers to know that when something goes wrong at Tad's, Gary won't push the blame back to some fantasy talk like his Nascar stringer would.

    A stringers quality of work based on DISCRIMINATION. How nice and professional is that. In fact, thats not very good publicity for the stores reputation either, is it? So which store did you work at again?

    As evidenced again, buyer beware ... you guys all know the drill by now on who to ask for.

    It's good that you specifed exactly what you meant by cheap. You wouldn't want to confuse that with a cheap service stringer.

    the math is very simple.
    the string cost is near similar everywhere.
    If u want cheap total stringing cost, something has to give

    I say 95% of those who use other people stringing service dont know this simple math.
    I know many stringers string it cheap than me. I also heard about stories of some them that suffered racket breakage from clients LOL, i mean breakage not from clashing.

    "Something has to give" --- So true. If go to a store, you're paying for the overhead which is similar unless they're in a fancy part of town (Robson . I haven't seen more than about $3-5 difference in string+stringing prices in GVA. If you try to squeeze out these few bucks they have to either string it significantly faster or give super cheap strings (fake?).

    Go with the stringer you can trust. Otherwise, if you like to restring a lot, get your own machine.
