trashcan of course.
every worthy stringer must have a huge trashcan next to their stringing machine.
That's why I have a scissor in my bag.
Always, at the bottom of my badminton bag is a foldable pair of scissors, just in case
Woudln't a re-string invalidate warranty? I don't know but "modifications" generally do. I modify everything I really hope that guy at my club cut his on his arcsaber the other week...
well, guess what... i get to keep the racket.
aside from the obvious of turning it into a pen, give me some suggestions on what to do with it?
hint: i have all sorts of tools at home, dremel, saws, knives, hammers. just name it.
Turn it into a fishing rod... and go at it at your fish tank?
Hi Kwun, is it critical to cut your method or if I cut from centre alternating between mains and crosses ?
If my hair were long enough, I would have been pulling it out.
^^ Perhaps he was sad that he could've repaired the string had he not cut it?
But yes, I know what he meant, I think.
Make a scale model racquet so I can copy your method for my 7 month old kid
Yes, I used to cut it in that alternate way (btn mains & crosses) from the center towards the frame..
But I guess this Kwun's method is also fine as in one go he is cutting both mains & crosses..
The small scissor which I carry in my kitbag, (just for this sole purpose) can only cut max 1-2 strings at a time..
Thanks Kwun for informing about this alternate (diagonal) way of cutting the strings..
I'd really like to know how to turn a broken racket into a pen, since I have a broken VT70 at home! )
you can just follow this video:
and show us the result!
Now that's badmtn fanatic...very creative, kwun!
when i first heard the idea i thought it wrong and thought you would turn it into a pencil because of the carbon graphite material within shaft...lol, so stupid of me. a pen makes a lot more sense, LOL.
never tried it thought i can tell u the carbon dust generated from the sawing process was a pain to clean!
Couple nites ago, was playing md with TK-6k when its VS-850 string snapped n broke.
We were in defensive position with me on the left side. Being right-hander, I was swinging my racket to return a fast flat drive that came towards the mid-court middle line.
Suddenly, as I was making contact with the birdie, there was a loud snapping sound like a strong loud clash between two rackets. Initially, I thought I have clashed with my partner's racket. As I looked down at my racket, lo n behold, the birdie is stuck into the string bed at the upper part with broken strings around that area. Needless to say, quickly cut the string bed ala kwun.
Questions time. First, what the heck happened to the VS-850 (yellow, strung 25/23 lbs)? How could it have snapped like that when it's less than 3mths old (playing 1-2 times/wk)? Second, looking at the position of the broken string at the upper part of the frame, does it mean I have not hit the sweet spot consistently enough to warrant a lower position of broken strings?
It seems that the victor strings w the new blue graphics package is different from their strings in old packagings (gold/silver graphics). My experienced stringer told me that somewhat the 'feel' or the quality is a bit different. I planned to string with their VS650 but he advised me to choose something else. Any other victor users notice this?
Good vid. By the way, your stringing machine looks like serious business. I bet that cost a pretty sum!
