    i don't think you'll be able to find someone to do it for less than 12-15.
    bg80s alone already cost around 8 per racquet.

    well i am not as expert as other people. but i would suggest to take a look at the racket frame to see whether there is any racket distortion, you can do this by putting your racket just slightly below eye level, and to see if there is uneven. you can also check on the knots, double knots are safer than a single knot. give the surface of the string a good press with both thumbs.

    Default hi

    Things to look for when getting a restring:
    • Always ask if the grommets / buffer strip on your racquet are okay. It's a false economy to restring with damaged grommets or a worn buffer, because they protect your strings from friction and contact with the frame.
    • Your restring should have no more than 4 knots. If it has, take it back and tell the stringer to do it again.
    • Only the four outside strings should be noticeably looser than the others. If a central string is very loose, take it back.
    • All strings at the throat of the racquet should be 'locked' in place by being woven under cross strings.
    • Modern racquets are fairly fragile. When a string breaks it deforms the frame slightly and can cause structural damage. In order to minimize further damage, you should seek to have the racquet restrung as quickly as possible.
    • Repairs (or 'patching' as it is sometimes called) should only be carried out as a very short-term measure. A broken string means that there has been tension loss over the complete string bed, which will never be regained with a repair.
    • Conscientious stringers will keep details of your last restring enabling you to have the same string and tension without guessing.
