    And let's not get distracted by the heavily sinking holes there.

    "Keen" might be stretching it a bit

    Sorry, it's not really badminton related, and it's not that bad, but man it was just a pain to watch..

    He starts at 8:30, takes 30+minutes on a tennis racket! Marking the string with a permanent marker (solvants not great for string), hard weaving 50%. And taking so long! Did I mention he takes so long? :eek::(

    Watched for the nice machine..

    edit: I may have been a bit of a sourpuss

    I don't know man. He could be just beginner stringer. We have ppl who are starting that takes 2 hours to string a badminton racket. I don't see anything wrong with that.

    Damn I've been reading pages of this. Been to long since I've looked here!

    Saw someone comment on the video saying looks better than Halim or @kakinami. Must be troll post... Hahah

    I don't think he was saying looked better, I think he was saying he is a better stringer than Halim and that douche bag Allan, actually spelled Alan. I have to agree with him 50%. Never met Halim but can tell you from personal experience, that Alan guy is 100% douche. I have met him and can say he is a douche. Maybe a Douche with a capital D. D bag! Douchebaggery, a douche-a-holic. Da-Da-Da...

    Alan Kamikaze would be a great alter-ego name! :D

    More like, when you do everything in your power to squeeze 22 mains into a racket that was designed for 20.

    I can’t help but admire the creativity it took to actually use all the grommets and to make this work somehow. Wow.

    I love the fact that the racket has "20/21 string bed" literally printed on the frame. But the stringer was like "challenge accepted, I can do 22/25!" And somehow he did make it work.

    I found this today :D First I thought I was having a stroke. It's on all 4 sides of the frame!

    One of the cheaper Forzas: Light 4.1. Seems to have a laser engraved serial and everything (but stickered weight/grip category)

    You wouldn't believe the stuff that sometimes slips past QC. And some which is noticed but decided to still pass on to the customers because in the end they won't notice. #

    That is bloody brilliant, I have to say! :D
