Professional Racquet Stringer Near Wangsa Maju | Kuala Lumpur (KL)
ERR’s stringing service has been serving badminton enthusiasts and advanced players in the Kuala Lumpur (KL), Tebrau, and Austin areas of Malaysia for over a decade, starting from 2007. After all these years, it can be said that this professional stringing service exists as a witness and companion for badminton enthusiasts and high-level professional badminton players. Why do we say this? Isn’t it easy to make money in Malaysia? Not quite, according to our chief stringer, Eric.
While it might sound appealing for a stringer to hold a certification and travel around, providing stringing services for quick cash, it’s not the way Eric approaches it. He shared, ‘Badminton has become a significant part of my life and my favorite sport. I spend nearly half my life immersed in badminton, touching it for at least four to six days a week. Therefore, I’ve separated my passion for badminton from the pursuit of financial gain. The money I earned from stringing rackets didn’t go towards personal expenses, luxury trips, or leisure activities with family. Instead, I saved it for continuous learning and as a fund to improve myself. I even traveled to Guangzhou to study advanced stringing techniques from a master stringer. I’m truly grateful for a group of like-minded enthusiasts who joined me, and we had the privilege of spending quality time with the best badminton players in Guangdong and the stringing experts in Guangzhou. We all gained immense knowledge and improved our badminton skills.
Any extra money was invested in upgrading my stringing machines and tools, all in pursuit of providing better stringing for my badminton rackets and ensuring that my friends who sent their rackets for stringing experienced consistently high-quality results. In fact, badminton, especially badminton stringing, has transcended my life in Malaysia. Without badminton or stringing, it would be like I’m missing a part of myself. Sometimes, when I’m busy stringing rackets or focusing on physical training for months, friends might think I’ve developed autism because I haven’t been in touch. Haha! In reality, being a professional badminton racket stringer and coach in badminton, which one is more profitable? Let’s analyze it honestly. For a two-hour class with five students, charging RM25 each, you’d earn RM125. Now, what about stringing rackets? Stringing one racket takes at least 45 minutes, and the price for stringing ranges from RM15 to RM18. In two hours, you’d earn around RM50. So why do I persist? Because I have a deep passion for badminton, it’s all my fault. I don’t want to see professional badminton stringing become a business solely for profit. It shouldn’t be about speed stringing, compromising the principles of professional stringing. I don’t want to see the international standards of professional racket stringing disappear in Malaysia. So, I want to express my gratitude to all the friends, buddies, and fellow enthusiasts who let me string their rackets and passed on the legacy.
Professional Stringing Service with Stringing Machine in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Our professional stringing service in Malaysia adheres to international stringing standards, one of which is the requirement for stringing to be done with the racket frame strung without the strings (commonly known as ‘pre-weaving’). Pre-weaving has only advantages and no disadvantages for customers, but why is that?
Firstly, it ensures a symmetrical stringing, which is essential for ‘not damaging’ the strings. Secondly, it ensures accuracy and uniformity in tensioning. Thirdly, it reduces tension loss and enhances the longevity of the strings.
The advantage of pre-weaving is that it saves time for the racket stringer. However, the disadvantages affect both the racket and the badminton player.
Why? Firstly, pre-weaving before stringing the racket can damage the strings, making them tangled and causing severe nylon damage.
Secondly, it results in imprecise tensioning because the strings have already been subjected to pressure, leading to immediate tension loss.
Thirdly, it doesn’t maintain tension for an extended period, making the strings prone to unraveling and coiling.
Fourthly, it significantly shortens the lifespan of the strings.
Professional stringing with a stringing machine ensures the longevity of the strings, which typically lasts for 2-3 months. Empirical evidence from top stringers and the latest computer stringing machines in 2018 supports these findings. This fact was established as early as 2011, but due to ongoing advancements in stringing technology, the conclusions are regularly tested and shared.
At ERR Kuala Lumpur, we take a professional approach to every racket to ensure that players receive the same professional treatment. If there is a violation of professional stringing norms, such as pre-weaving, we offer an immediate refund to provide customers with peace of mind.
Guaranteed No-String Distortion – Professional Kuala Lumpur (KL) Racket Stringing Service by Internationally Certified Stringers
We take the issue of string distortion in rackets very seriously. What is string distortion? The patterns you see are examples of string distortion. To protect the exclusive privileges and quality of our loyal ERR racket friends in the KL area, we do not allow any form of string distortion to occur.
Why? The downside of string distortion is that it shortens the lifespan of the strings, and severe friction can lead to breakage. This also causes the tension to rapidly drop and oxidize, significantly disrupting the order of the string holes, affecting not only the appearance but also the performance.
Our loyal racket friends at ERR have never encountered string distortion issues because our professional racket stringers are highly focused on ensuring the longevity of the strings according to stringing regulations.
Pre-weaving the racket before stringing is the most common situation where string distortion can occur. This is precisely why all international tournaments have unanimously mandated the use of stringing machines without pre-weaving, whether it’s Victor, YY, or Li-Ning at the Olympics.
When it comes to professional racket stringing services, we believe in not just saying but also doing. Stringing a badminton racket may seem easy, but achieving perfection in stringing requires genuine dedication to the details.
In our stringing service in KL, we strive for perfection for our customers, providing an absolutely professional stringing service. We don’t cut corners to save time; instead, we focus on stringing rackets perfectly. We string with care, and the emphasis is on where we can make it even more perfect. Our racket friends can truly appreciate and see the difference.
Calibration of Racket Stringing Machines and Tension Measurement – Certified in Singapore
Even though we use the widely acclaimed Yonex P8, known as the world’s most precise racket stringing machine, we do not take any chances when it comes to ensuring precise tension measurements. Even the most accurate machines can experience issues at some point, and we never know when that might happen. That’s why we have a strict policy of sending our stringing machine heads for calibration testing every six months at a certified calibration laboratory in Singapore. We wait for the calibration test results to pass before we continue using them.
In the event that calibration fails, we send the machine back to the headquarters for precision adjustments and then to the calibration laboratory for recalibration. We only bring the machine back to our service when it is accompanied by a calibration certificate. This ensures a professional and reliable guarantee for our stringers and racket friends.
Why is this guarantee for our customers? Here’s a good example: when the tension measurement is accurate, if a racket friend asks for 30 pounds of tension, that’s exactly what they get – not a pound more or less, just right.
While calibration may be costly, for a badminton enthusiast and professional racket stringing service, the assurance of precision is well worth it. Additionally, we choose a professional calibration company that is certified by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) under the international ISO 17025 standard. Their expertise in measuring tension is truly admirable, and it instills more confidence in our racket friends.
A good stringing machine should always maintain precision at all times, ensuring peace of mind for our customers. You can download our calibration certificate here.
Calibration of String Clamps on Badminton Stringing Machines in Singapore
If any racket enthusiasts have carefully examined string clamps, they would understand the importance of these clamps. Rusty, old, or improperly adjusted string clamps can cause significant harm to both the stringing process and the strings themselves.
Let’s discuss the significance of string clamps. If the clamps are adjusted too tightly, for example, for a string with a diameter of 0.66mm, we adjust it to a density of 0.63mm or 0.64mm with a clamp force of 5 teeth to securely hold the string.
If the clamps are adjusted too tightly, it not only damages the string but also severely compresses and damages the nylon fiber structure of the string. This can lead to the occurrence of short strings, posing a serious threat to the lifespan of the strings. Such practices go against the professional stringing standards upheld by ERR.
Although racket stringers may overlook overly tight clamps as long as the racket doesn’t exhibit issues like string slipping or loosening, we have conducted thousands of tests on commonly used string diameters ranging from 0.55mm to 0.69mm to gather precise data. With this data, we sent our badminton string clamps to a calibration laboratory to measure the desired clamp tension and curvature damage. Ensuring the clamps are not too loose is essential, as overly loose clamps can lead to inaccuracies in tension measurements and affect the locking of the correct tension.
Accurate tension measurements are crucial to prevent uneven tension, string bed issues, and an inconsistent playing feel. You can download the clamp calibration certificate here.
Enhancing Badminton Stringing Expertise in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
For a professional badminton stringer, it’s not enough to just string rackets without understanding the principles of the game. Why is this important? Imagine a player constantly complaining about not having enough power in their smashes or hitting net shots too high.
What do these descriptions indicate? Only a stringer with a certain level of badminton proficiency can truly understand and address these issues for you. Our ERR International Stringer, Eric, was once a professional badminton player in Malaysia, representing the country in numerous domestic tournaments.
In 2004, he faced a knee injury that sidelined him for three years. Despite extensive physical therapy, he couldn’t make a full recovery, leading him to step away from competitive badminton and become an amateur player.
Eric later founded the Singapore Badminton Academy, where he shared his skills, accumulated experience, and continuously earned professional coaching certifications. Over the course of more than a decade, he nurtured numerous young talents who achieved outstanding results in badminton.
Eric states, ‘Teaching badminton is similar to stringing rackets. As long as you’re willing to invest time and effort into stringing with dedication, your stringing details and quality will surpass others. Don’t be concerned about what others think of you earning ‘peanuts.’ I can only say that helping fellow badminton enthusiasts and professionally stringing rackets with passion brings greater happiness than just making money.’ Take a look at Eric’s awards and records from the Singapore Badminton Academy.
Supporting WeChat Payments for Professional Badminton Racket Stringing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
For our fellow badminton enthusiasts who work in Singapore but have their hearts back in their home country, ERR has always charged you based on domestic pricing, in line with Guangzhou’s domestic rates. This is done for several reasons.
Firstly, we want to ensure that you don’t incur exorbitant expenses when you’re away from home, even though most of our customers are quite well-off. Secondly, we aim to provide convenience to all of you. Sending a WeChat red packet or making a digital money transfer is much more appealing than dealing with physical cash. Lastly, our head stringer, who hails from China, believes in the principle of returning kindness and support to his home country.
So, for all of you with WeChat Pay or Alipay capabilities, you’ll continue to enjoy domestic pricing. Cash payments will still be based on the stringing rates in Kuala Lumpur.
What is the best badminton racket stringing service？
The best badminton racket stringing service isn’t about how many stringing certificates you have, how many major tournaments you’ve strung for, or how quickly you can string. It’s about how much care and attention you put into stringing each racket, especially the little details of each one.
