    Isn't your time worth more than a few dollars "saved"?

    And you might actually be spending even more time restringing as the string you "saved" is less durable and will be prone to break when you re-use it.

    Here is my take on this. If it is difference of $2 for a pack of the string. You can skip the big mac and go for the whopper jr. for 1 meal. there is your $2 for your string. If you are already on whopper jr. budget, skip the whopper jr. for 1 meal and you would not even lost 1lb because you are already too thin.

    Well, I just think for the type of money you spend on equipment (top dollar), you'd just re-string. Unless you're saving $25+ dollars per hour, or similiar, I don't think it's worth it.

    Time is the most important thing...wait, why am I on here posting?

    Oh, my excuse, my job is to be on the computer all day, yeah, that's it.

    Default off topic, thanks to DinkAlot

    thanks DinkALot: the MP orange string you gave to me was real good. I put on that in my Woven 11 (in 27/29lbs) and it turn out powerful. 4 of my club members had tried and said that. Thank you. So, I ordered 2 reels of the reg. MP in orange color.
    The blue MP string(from you) I kept in my car over period of time and got over heat some time. That blue MP string broke couple times in my stringing machine. Thank god I was practicing at the beginning.
    I don't know what happened to the MP string(orange) from your Woven 7 which is lack of power. Did you exposed to heat (too warm in CA)? or over used that one? That gave me opposite opinion at the beginning.

    Seriously, I wouldn't bother with $2. Just cut the original string and have it strung by an experienced stringer or yourself.

    When the rackets shipped to you, who knows what could have happened to the string. Maybe they were sitting in the mailman's truck too long. Don't know for sure. What I do know is I certainly do not leave my equipment in an extremely hot or cold environment.

    Wink Ya, I am too cheap

    Ya, I am too cheap. That's why I don't have GF.
    Ya, I don't have gf, that's why I have time in thinking this way.
    well, if DinkAlot give me a whole reel, instead just a piece, I may have lot time for doing something more important
    well, if I have time, may be doing something more important like chasing girls on the streets.
    oh, ya, this need to move to chit-chat section

    I want to try to replace the main only when it breaks; and just replace the cross only when it breaks. I tired the main string to main only; and tired the cross to cross only. In this way, I will save some expensive string by doing so. And #10 strings will become #20 strings in usuage. I will remove the broken string carefully after I stable/hold the whole racket in the stringing machine first. In that way, I think can prevent the distoration of the racket whilel taking off the broken string.
    I want people's opinions in this issue.
    thanks inadvance,
    Bruno

    Personally, I see some problems with this method:

    1. If you use expensive string, and string @ such high tension, I assume you play very competitively, which means, you do care about the string performance. However, the used string's performance (even if not breaking) will be no where near the new string (the replaced half). Isn't you are spending all your time and sacrifice your performance, while just save half pack of string (US$5-6)?

    2. Once string is used, the tension is no longer the same when you 1st strung it. Therefore, it's very hard to determine what the tension for the "replacement" suppose to be. It will casue the racket to be out of shape, and with such high tension, it puts the racket in risk.

    3. What type of string machine u have? Unless you have a well made (with side supports well placed) 6 point machine, it's very hard to keep racket in shape, if you remove the broken main. If you have a 2 point machine, there's no support on the side (cross), as soon as u remove the main, the racket will be totally out of shape.

    I am back from badminton tonight. I really enjoyed smashing with the NBG95. It's truely a powerful string. The coach from opponent team told our opponent to beware of my powerful smashes, but they still lost to us.
    Thanks for LZ's opinions which are very professional. Oh, my machine is a Eagnas Flex 740, by the way. I replaced the 2 tennis fix clamps with 2 of the badminton fix clamps: PN-1013. And I have 4 of the badminton clamps PN-3050 which are simular to HQ and Yonex's badminton clamps.
    Thanks
