After many months of debating on whether I should try to restringing my own racquets, decision was made when a local ex badminton player offered me his machine. Took the plunge and bought it as we live on an island so it would have been a headache getting a new machine shipped here. The seller promised to teach me how to restring so I took him up on the offer and got him to show me on an old racquet which belonged to a friend. Took 1:42 mins (recorded session on phone) yesterday as I made quite a few mistakes . Decided to restring on my own today as I wanted to try it out with the process still fresh in my mind. Took out my spare Astrox77 ( a bit of a gamble I know!!) and thought I’d give it a go armed with a few YouTube tutorials, Yonex pattern page and my other strung Astrox77. Had a few hiccups but have now ended up with one still intact restrung racquet. I’d like to thank this forum for giving me the confidence to do this and look forward to reading up more posts to speed up the process!!
