    That's almost exactly in line with my timings: badminton 35/tennis 25. Tennis has fewer weaves and no shared holes, hence the speed hike; the only drawback is the fancy ATW pattern I seem to have to use on every bloody Wilson that comes my way.
    I used to dread doing a two piece on a non-hybid job, and now it's just second nature. Doing a two piece take the same amount of time than doing an ATW. Having all the right tools at your disposal saves time.

    that depends on the quality of the swivel clamps. flying clamp is very fast.

    Flying clamps are OK for badminton because of the low tension. For tennis that's another story. Bascially you need stronger clamps and more effort to close them.

    I am backwards, it takes me longer to do Tennis than Badminton. Maybe 4 more minutes to do Tennis

    I'm getting anywhere from 30-40 rackets per week at the moment but I do squash and tennis aswell as badminton. Some people here are spot on with regards to times, if you can do a badminton racket in 35-45, you'll do a tennis racket in 25.. It takes me approx 20min for a badminton racket, 16 for a tennis racket and 13 for squash. A lot depends on the string, stiff poly strings take much longer on tennis rackets.
