Badminton Racket Restringing
Badminton racket restringing

The list below represents just a selection of strings (and those I find are most commonly used in my experience) - if you want a quote for a particular string, call me on 07855 107578 or 01785 607797.

If you bring the racket to me and collect it yourself, the prices below include restringing - what you see is what you pay. Some people seem to think that is just the cost of the string and still have to pay extra for the restringing . . . no - that's the total price.

While-you-wait service
  • I can do a restring while you wait sometimes (depending on workload). There is a small extra charge (£5) for this (I have to stop what I'm doing and you get pushed up the list ... bit like going private). 
  • How long does it take? Some rackets take longer than others, but expect to be hanging around for 40 mins. There's a retail park nearby, or you can sit and watch me perform miracles on your racket . . . it's up to you. 
  • If you want a while-you-wait restring, you need to contact me and arrange a time (07855 107578).
Already have string
If you already have a set of string you want me to use, the cost for me to restring the racket is £10.

Have a look at our string selection below (there is more information about strings and tensions here, if you are interested).

Titan Power Pro
Titan
Power Pro (.75mm)     £12
This a good all-round string. Very durable ... ideal for chronic string breakers and those who don't want to visit their stringer regularly! Comes in yellow.

Yonex BG65
Yonex
Yonex BG65 (.70mm)    £14
Probably the most widely used string. Multifilament core and high quality fibres. This is recommended for all-around play and a long-time best seller. Good durability and great value. 

Yonex BG65 Ti
Yonex
Yonex BG65 Ti (.70mm)    £14
As above but with a compound titanium hybrid coating providing a sharp but comfortable feel at impact. 
Designed for hard hitters. Comes in red or white.

Yonex BG68 Ti
Yonex
Yonex BG68 Ti (.68mm)      £14
Another very popular string in the Yonex range - similar to BG65 but thinner (so a bit more responsive), with a nice 'soft' feel. 
White.

Yonex BG80
Yonex
Yonex BG80 (.68mm)      £15
Hard feel. Good propulsion and control. Ideal for power smashes. Popular with good players. 
Colours - yellow or white.

Yonex BG80 Power
Yonex
Yonex BG80 Power (.68mm)      £15
Yonex BG80 Power is a multifilament core with a high modulus Vectran fibre coiled around, helping to reduce movement of the strings. BG80 Power holds the tension longer and is a powerful string.
Colours - white or orange.

Yonex BG66 Ultimax
Yonex
Yonex BG66 Ultimax (.65mm)         £15
Medium feel. Very thin gauge for maximum speed. Very popular with top players. 
White.

Yonex Nanogy 95
Yonex
Yonex Nanogy 95 (.69mm)          £15
The string is coated with Nano carbon fibres ... so must be good! But seriously, everyone who uses this string never tries anything else and that says a lot.
Colour - gold.

Yonex Nanogy 98
Yonex
Yonex Nanogy 98 (.66mm)        £15
Medium feeling. Very thin gauge at .66mm. This is all about power ... so don't expect a high durability string!
Colour - gold.

Yonex Nanogy 99
Yonex
Yonex Nanogy 99 (.69mm)          £16
 Medium feeling. This has a rough braid providing maximum bite on the shuttle. Ideal for control players.
Colour - white.

Yonex Aerosonic
Yonex
Yonex Aerosonic (.61mm)         £16
This is the thinnest string on the market . . . the blurb says that they fill the gaps between filaments with a resin, giving the string extra durability. However, at a tiny 0.61mm gauge it is going to break more easily than a 0.68 or 0.70. Provides great repulsion power and a great hitting sound.

Yonex Aerobite
Yonex
Yonex Aerobite Hybrid (.67mm x .61mm)         £16
A new string from Yonex. This is a hybrid combination with different gauges and coatings on the mains and crosses - different colours too (red mains and white crosses). The blurb says they provide quick repulsion and piercing spin for hairpins and cut smashes (hope you know what that means!).

Ashaway Zymax Fire Power
Ashaway
Ashaway Zymax Fire Power  (.66mm)    £14
Ashaway claims this has ZyWeave core technology . . . gotta love these guys! 
For players at the high performance end of the spectrum. Minimum tension loss and maximum strenth and durablity. Comes in bright orange. 

Ashaway Flex 21
Ashaway
Ashaway Flex 21 (.75mm)    £13
Multifilament core with braided wrap. A very popular all-round string because it's durable, has a medium rough texture for good grip/control with the shuttle. If in doubt about what string to go for, this is one to try.

Ashaway Zymax
Ashaway
Ashaway Zymax 70 (.70mm)    £13
If you're looking for very high tension then this is the string for you - can string up to 35lbs tension!!!
Red or white.

Ashaway Micro Legend
Ashaway
Ashaway MicroLegend (.73mm)    £13
Another durable string. Takes a very high tension. Ideal for players who have plenty of natural power but need a very high tension to give more control. 

Babolat VS Touch
Babolat
Babolat VS Touch (.70mm)    £25
Natural gut. Some people love it (people with pots of money, that is). Plays like a dream (I'm told). I'm not so sure ... the fact that the pros use synthetic strings ... and Yonex don't make a natural gut badminton string tells a story. But if you want it - I'm happy to take your money. 

Babolat iFeel
Babolat
Babolat iFeel (.66mm or .68mm)     £14
High-performance, multifilament string featuring a specific coating for good friction resistance, a clear hitting sound and Nano Titanium technology for greater durability and a crisp feel. Comes in white or yellow.

Babolat Challenge
Babolat
Babolat Challenge Hi Life (.85mm)    £13
Multifibre, braided string for recreational and improving players (whatever that means!!). However, if you break strings regularly, and are fed up visiting your local stringer, then this is the string for you. Despite the fact that it's as tough as piano wire it actually plays and feels pretty good. I just can't believe someone thought this was a good name for a string.
