    Default Show your stringing backlog

    Here is mine from the weekend. Which has since been cleared.

    There is a team tournament this weekend so many of my clients want a new string.

    I got one more since and then i need to work on my own racket for the tournament. Thinking nbg98 if i want to be boring or zymax 62F for a little more zing.

    This is when 2 clubs gang up on me, in addition to testing and sending out the last few Custom Wise switches from my current batch of parts.

    I'm quietening down now that the season is coming to an end. With a backlog of league, county and uni matches recently I don't have much skin left on my fingers. Only 4 to do by Thursday but that may change by tonight.

    I wish I had a backlog to show! Only average 1-3 jobs a month so no chance to improve speed that much. My busiest was 4 in one day.

    I've never had to re-string a racquet, but am I right in saying that most annoying part is getting the old strings out of the head?

    That was my backlog last month. 16 rackets to string and one to fix the handle (was broken).

    Are you guys having good going shops, have so many customers with high tension or are your clients just patient? Normally when I get rackets I string them within 24hours and return them. Nobody has to wait longer than 48 hours to get his racket back. My backlog is never bigger than 6 rackets.

    my clients are used to 1 week turnaround. most of them play once a week so if they hand it to me they will get it back before the next time they play. this week however they want to get it done before the weekend tournament so i get it back within a couple of days.

    I guess that you have a shop. Protech 5, Babolat Sensor. You can't be just a badminton nerd.

    As a stringer, I visit the stringing technique section regular. You posted pics of your machines. I'm not stalking you. I just have a total recall.
