Our stringing specialist at KW FLEX has many years of experience and stringed over 2000 badminton rackets. We use one of the most advanced stringing machines, specially and only suitable for the badminton sport.
Help! How many kilos and which string on my badminton racket?
It is very difficult for the average badminton player to determine which string or how many kg to put on the badminton racket. Of course we help you to make the right choice that matches your playing style and specific characteristics. At KW FLEX you can choose from a large selection of badminton strings from Yonex, Victor and Ashaway that are also available in many different colors.
Did you know that if you play badminton twice a week, it is wise to replace your string every year, even though it is not broken yet? The string of the string decreases and wears out during the year, but replacing the string regularly will prevent a broken string during an important competition.
Which badminton string?
The thickness of the string used when stretching the badminton racket depends on the type of game you want to play and the durability.
A thicker string means more durability and therefore less wear. At the same time, these strings give less control and power.
A thinner string means less durable and will have to be replaced faster, but the advantage of these strings is more power and control.
How many pounds on the string?
The number of kgs used on a string also depends on the type of game and the durability you want. Many badminton players think that as many kilos as possible should be put on a string, but that is certainly not true. It totally depends on your playing level, experience and playing style.
More pounds means more control, but you also need better Technic for that. Otherwise the string will wear out even faster and the string will also punish your playing.
Less pounds means a larger sweet spot, making it easier to hit the shuttle better. In addition, these strings often last longer, because there is less tension on them.
At KW FLEX Badminton specialist store you can also test 2 identical badminton rackets with 2 different number of kilos, so you can decide what you like to play. Do you want to try this? Let us know and come pick up the rackets in the store!
Tennis and squash strings
In addition, we are also able to provide tennis and squash rackets with a new covering for you. Every year our stringing specialist takes a course at Yonex to sharpen and improve his stringing skills for tennis rackets.
