    Hi
    I am planning to make an Informational Video about Stringing & it's techniques.
    I am not expert in badminton stringing I just learned stringing from BadmintonCentral. But after stringing around 4000 to 5000 rackets i came to know that there is no scientific information or manual. most of the knowledge is passed from mouth to mouth or based on the experience of the player / stringer which may be accurate or not so Accurate. For new comers there is no 1 location where they will get all the information. So for that reason i am planning to make videos about stringing & it's techniques.

    I want to make videos on the following topics with max length of 5-7 min.
    1. All the stringing Patterns with demo.
    2. Video on how stringing can change your game
    3. What good string job is ??
    4. What is string Bed tension
    5. What types of strings are there
    6. Why certain type of strings are used
    7. How the string tension changes after every use
    8. What not to do with your racket
    9. How to take care of the Strings
    10. What to do after the string is broken
    11. How to find out the exact String tension
    12 .How to select a proper string for your game type
    13. How to find out your playing style
    14. What type of shuttles you should use on what strings
    15. How to select a proper grip for the racket
    16. When to change the racket string
    17. When to change the grips
    18. Some reviews of the Basic rackets
    19. Etc.
    20 Q& A

    Please suggest if there are more topics we can cover.

    Regards,
    Akshay Badhe,

    There are a few good examples out there, the badminton central youtube channel has some good ones.

    But if you're making good quality content, go for it!

    Whatever you do, just don't make it like this, honestly, I don't know why this is still up.. It hurts just looking at it.

    Yes you are right there are way worst videos.
    Please tell me what you will like in the videos.
    1st few videos I will be covering many Stringing patters.
    For the same my graphics team is preparing some racket cliparts so it will be easy to understand.
    But I think making a video 15 to 20 min long of stringjob will be very boring.
    But I am working on it.

    Please suggest some ideas of showing the Stringing that I can finish in 5-7 min.

    Thanks again for your interest & help.

    I am stringing rackets for last 8-9 years.
    & Learned it from badminton Central.
    In these years strung around 4000 to 5000 rackets or maybe more.
    But my knowledge is not theoretically correct or sometimes I don't have scientific reason. So need your help in that aspect.

    Suggest considering going on a certified stringing course as well if you haven't been on one. It may help you.

    I stay in India & there is no certification program in my country.
    It will be really amazing if you can suggest me a online certification course.

    I am very sorry I can't afford to go on tour since it will affect my business.
    If I am not in the shop everything goes haywire :mad::mad:
    I have not taken a holiday for last 5 years. :eek::eek:

    Can i ask you for a favour.
    Can you please ask your stringer if there is any courses i can do in my city (Mumbai) India.

    You would be better off asking local badminton distributors and other stringers about courses in your city.

    one of the most important pre-requisite before teaching some other something is to make sure you understand and can do it yourself. Maybe you can post one of your stringing job from beginning to end and we can better judge how to help you and you creating your videos.

    I am very sorry for being nervous since I was under pressure.
    I know I must have made many mistakes.
    But this video is to point my mistakes out.

    & I am sorry that I was talking to customer & forgot to pause the video.

    Donot depend on stringster app, I have never strung racquets, but I would advice you to
    1. do a two piece stringjob from now on.
    2. try adding atleast 5% prestretch
    3. Wait for atleast 3-4 secs more before clamping the string and removing the string from the motor, i. e let the string rest for 3-4 secs more while being pulled from the motor(provided you have activated constant pull on your machine).
