    Quote was for forged aluminium body with stainless steel pins loctited in. Doesn't need to be spectacular, does it. I'll have to investigate plastic padding, or else people can pad their own out ad lib.

    Hello,
    Looking on your technical pictures I've decided to make this elements myself using normal steel and simple tools like drill, grinder, welder. The result you can see below. Thermo-shring tubes protect the frame. The supports are quite tough at the moment, so in the future I'm going to paint it.













    Stringing process is really easier now. Thanks for nice idea

    Cheers,
    Michal

    Any ideas, people?
    Get dink to like it, and market it under the DC Badminton brand!
    Or maybe this gives you a reason to come visit the sunny side of the world ^_^

    Yes, but only for first main strings. It's easier to start when you have some kind of fixed clamps, even tennis clamps. Later flying clamps (pro's pro too) are more comfortable and faster in use. And of course is unpossible to use tennis clamps for cross badminton strings.

    thanks boss, I have all you've mentioned .....
    but I prefer Yonex flying clamp for the cross and Hiqua flying clamp for the main.
    Pro's Pro flying clamp is similar to Alpha ones or AEF flying clamp, a bit loose compare to Hiqua (at least from my experiences).

    so meaning, you do not have badminton fixed-clamp, right ?

    Right. Fixed tennis clamps (for 2-3 strings of the main) and flying badminton clamps (for the rest of main and all of the crosses). I can compare them (P'sP) to Victor flying clamps only. Pro's Pro are wider (better holding tension) and much easier to put on to the strings.

    I have 2 Yonex flying clamp, and 2 HiQua flying clamp.

    You can see the video where Dink strings his Ultra at 41lbs.
    When he did the main, he used HiQua
    When he did the cross, he used Yonex
