First, I’m on no account an knowledgeable in stringing.
I personal a 30-year previous, 2-point assist stringing machine and string solely mine and my spouse’s rackets and generally for shut associates. I learnt some stringing strategies from my badminton coach by watching him stringing rackets and from the recommendation from the stringing consultants right here on this BC discussion board. Plus, you may also discover info in Youtube as nicely.
I do not usually string over 25 lbs of pressure as I’m afraid that with out the facet helps it could trigger injury to the rackets. I’ve a pressure calibrator (a weight scale that may be bought in Amazon or Alibaba) to measure the strain and I usually do earlier than stringing to search out out any discrepancies between the required pressure and the pulling pressure from my stringing machine. I verify the clamps that they safe the strings correctly.
I did experiment with totally different stringing strategies such including 2 lbs of pressure for the Cross strings, similar pressure for Mains and Crosses and even tried utilizing 1 piece stringing with 2 knots. I do not do the pre-stretching or double pulling, only a 1 fast pull with the crank. I really feel the stringbed is agency – I’ve in contrast different individuals’s rackets strung with pressure over 25 lbs with mine at 22 lbs, and felt mine have been firmer (one man even talked about that my racket strings felt tighter that his that was requested to be strung at 27 lbs).
I watched and realized the knotting approach from the consultants right here – I now use principally the Gudgeon knot as defined by Kakinami (there’s a video of him exhibiting do it), an expert stringer and common contributor right here. I forgot the knotting strategies that my coach first taught me, so from my restricted expertise my stringing jobs benefited fairly a bid from a greater knotting approach on the finish of the stringing jobs ensuing much less pressure loss.
I string my rackets sometimes, want enhance my abilities with the weaving of the cross strings and with the shared holes. I take my time to do the duty, usually over 1H and in addition attempting to get pleasure from and study from each stringing alternative.
Hope this helps a bit.
