    Default Yonex ES5 Protech in Sports Life, Yonex Sunrise

    Was told by the staff this machine cost $15,000 . Yonex Sunrise will provide a staff to set this machine up in your premises when you order one.

    I had one of my Armortec 700 1st Gen strung in this very machine with JP BG66 Sharp at 28 lbs.

    For $15,000, I could have my own personal resident stringer!

    Will take a lot of re-stringing job to recoup the cost of this machine

    Thanks for the thread; dont know if you are able to answer this but, just wondering how does it compare to Mr Soh's stringing?

    I have not tried the string jobs at Far East Plaza as its rather expensive. Perhaps aramistuscany can answer your query since he have had his racquets strung at both places before.

    ps. for your reference I had my racquets strung at the Yonex showroom in Bangkok with the same machine and imho its about 3lbs higher than Classic for the same tension. The cost was Baht190/S$8.26/US$5.59 for BG66.

    Sounds like it is better to stick to one same stringer, and experiment to see which tension is better since "24lbs" by one stringer may feel different from another stringer...

    Mr. Soh's string/stringing prices are lower. Both their stringing job are excellent. I came here to try out the stringing job of the ES5 Protech and the Yonex Sunrise stringer.

    Is there any difference in tension strung at both places?

    I have 2 Armortec 700 IP 3UG5 1st Gen and I sent for stringing one at each place. Both places I requested 30/31 lbs tension and both of them were unwilling to accede to my request advising me to go for lower tensions in the vicinity of the racquet recommended tension.

    I chose Yonex Nanogy 98 (JP) for Classic Sports and Yonex BG66 Sharp (JP) at Sports Life. Both was strung a few days apart with Classic Sports a few days earlier probably 3 or 4 days. Mr. Soh uses the desk-top Pacific electric stringing machine and Sports Life ES5 Protech.

    Mr. Soh's (Classic Sport) reason was for the sake of my racquet's long-term 'health' it is better to string it lower at 27/28 lbs. At this tension he said it is already very sufficient even for the strong/heavy hitters. Besides he assured me his 27/28 lbs standard is actually very tight which was true when I felt it after the string job. To me it was like closer to 30 lbs although he told me it was 27/28 lbs. I was standing there watching him stringing the racquet and chatting to him the whole time.

    As for Sports Life, Roland the Yonex Sunrise stringer told me the maximum he would string is 27/28 lbs according to the recommended tension printed on the racquet. He went on to say that some other Yonex racquets the recommended tension is even lower like the 4U Armortec 600 and he would string it lower accordingly. If I were to insists at a higher tension and my racquet broke during the stringing, Sunrise would not compensate me for it. In any case, he would not do it for me any higher. The finished job was excellent and very tight though I couldn't compare them as I don't have both the racquets with me at that time.

    Now 2 months later I am feeling both the tension now as I type. The Sports Life tension seems to hold longer and still felt quite tight. The racquet Mr. Soh strung seems to have lost its tension slightly more.

    Could it be that I used the Classic Sports strung racquet more? Could it be because of the machine? Could it be the 3 or 4 days difference being strung? Or the different strings used though both strings thickness are similar at 0.66mm?

    Let the reader be the judge of it.

    There are other factors too like the different stringer, machine and string type. Just to simplify things, lets assume these are the same.

    Since the string is still in the break-in peorid, the tension will drop. The 3-4 days apart there will be a difference.

    If you tested either of the two rackets each day from the day it was stringed, you would notice the tension gradually drop. In any case it could up to two weeks or earlier before the strings stablize.
