Badminton racket strings and regutting techniques


Almost a month has passed that I haven't strung my racket yet. I broke all the strings of my three badminton rackets in one week! How unlucky you can be, huh?! Anyhow, the problem was it's all too inconvenient for us players here to have our rackets strung. The nearest, most reliable place we send our rackets for stringing or 're-gutting' as we call it, is about 25 kilometers away and it will take us the whole day just to wait our rackets re-gutted so we can bring it back home!

The other thing about badminton racket strings is personal preference. There's a plethora of strings and re-gutting "factors" you should consider before you even submit your racket for re gutting. Most likely, it will depend on your badminton playing level, the tension you're at ease with, the strength of your wrist and fore arm as well as how often do you use your badminton racket. Personally I prefer a high tension, tightly strung badminton string for my power smash and relaxed return of shots. So for you guys, what string and re-gutting technique do you prefer??

Still not happy with what you read? Couldn't understand something in the article? Or simply you want to SEARCH some more? Type in here:

    Which Carlton rackets would you recommend for a 13 year old?I know the shaft needs to be fexible, and have spotted the following offers which look like bargains:Iso Graphite £24.99/Iso Pro £39.99. Any Advice will be gratefully received.

    I've always used BG60 with my rackets (Victor SW35) but I restring it with VS 850 when I enter a tournament.
