Currently we use two electronic Gamma 5800 ELS Stringing Machines . These are two state-of-the-art pieces of equipment, arguably the 'best machines in the market' at the moment.
Top Quality Service & Speed of Response
We keep records of the tensions and string types you have used so you can get a 'repeat restring' without fuss. However, if you think you are not getting the best from your current 'set-up', or your strings seem to break more frequently than you would like, then our expert staff will also be happy to advise. A change of either (or both) string type or tension can give your racket a new lease of life.
Sometimes you find that your racket isn't feeling as good as it should. It isn't always just 'stringing' which is needed. Occasionally, the buffer / head protection guard / 'bit of stuff around the head' needs replacing or the grip is also affecting performance and feel. Our staff are always on-hand to advise.
There are Four elements to the pricing.
If this is the first time you are using our service we will need to ship our Custom Designed Racquet Box to you so you can pack the racquet in our Custom Racquet. This element will cost you the Cost of the Racquet Box + The cost of shipping the box to your location. if you have already used our service you will have the Racquet Box handy so you can avoid this cost. You can also avoid the cost of us shipping the Box to you by shipping the Racquet in your own box, although we still need to charge you for the cost of the racquet box since we will be using our Racquet box to ship the racquet out to you.

What is a Hybrid?
Hybrid stringing consists of using different strings in the main and cross strings of a racquet. Hybrid stringing can be as simple as varying string thickness between the main and cross string, to using completely different string materials.
Why Should I use a Hybrid String?
Hybrid stringing is gaining popularity as more players are looking for a blend of string qualities. By selecting different hybrid combinations of string, players can fine-tune the playability, comfort, durability, liveliness and control offered by the stringbed. For instance, heavy hitting players can find a good combination of durability and playability with a polyester main string and natural gut or premium synthetic cross string hybrid.
Selecting the Main String
When choosing a hybrid, note that the main string will dominate the overall feel and playability of the two strings. For example, if you are seeking durability, then the most durable of the two strings selected should be chosen as the main string. If your overall goal is playability, then the string with the most desirable playing characteristics should be chosen as the main string. For playability, select a thinner gauge as the main string such as 17 or 18 gauge. For durability, select a thicker main string such 15L or 16 gauge. You can mix gauges between mains and crosses.
Selecting the Cross String
Think of the cross string as having an influence on the main string. While you will not get the full benefit of the string's playing characteristics, the overall feel of the stringbed will be altered. For example, a soft and forgiving cross string, such as natural gut or multifilament synthetic, can soften-up a stiff and durable main string, such as polyester.
To further customize your hybrid selection, you can vary the tension between strings. As a general rule, main strings should be strung tighter than cross strings. This is a popular set-up with professional players and is a good way of increasing the size of the sweetspot. We recommend a tension variance of 2-3lbs and have a maximum tension variance of 5lbs on hybrid stringing.
Important Do's and Dont's for Natural Guts:
1) Please keep the string clean at all times. Use a clean cotton swap and clean the string of all dirt and debris.
2) Do not expose the string to water or moisture.
3) Store it in a good quality bag when the racquet is not being used.
4) Please play with relatively new balls since bad balls will damage the natural gut
5) Treat the string carefully and it will provide with many hours of amazing play
