Special technique for stringing rackets
The following is the explaination about our special technique for stringing rackets on this page.

No matter where you are from and we do string your racket.

1. •concept of stringing

Back to a long time ago, the rackets were made in wood, and those rackets cannot afford the tension more than 16 pound. On those days, stringing is usually done by hand, and no machine was involved.
Nowadays, the rackets have been improved by science technology and the process of stringing is all done by machine. The technology we have now allows us to add more tension and pressure on the rackets, and the string is more endurable and stronger than before.
In our shop, we have our own special technique for stringing, and our stringing machines are one of the best in the world from YONEX.. Even if you are from oversea, please feel free to require our stringing service.

2. The list of prices for stringing

Tension list is not absolute and it is only the standard.
It can not be helped that there is a difference in the machine for the way to string by each shop
This our list is a tension of 1 piece (2 knot ) string using our machine Please understand it beforehand
For high tension, it is easy to damage the rackets or cut off the string, the racket get burden when high tension applies to the rackets.
There are some cases that our technical staff might refuse to string customer's racket because the racket cannot afford such high tension, and it may cause damage to the racket.


4. our stringing machine




Stringing machine usually has 2 knot, 4 knot and 6 knot the point of fixed racket .
Fixed many points can reduce burden for racket however it takes more times for stringing .
Our shop using machine is ideal 6 knot , so burden for racket reduce extremely .
It usually string warp first , next woof .(In SHUTTLE HOUSE we have adopted one piece (2 knot) that string warp and woof at almost the same time ) Warp can be pulled with tension set up but woof it cause easy to snap because of friction make loosen So it need to string with shift
1. Hand operation fixed the tension set up , so it can't get it adjusted a little keep loosen each woof .

Hand operation is adopted by private use .
2. It is good for private use the hand operation, but it is not suitable for business use .
3. Though electric machine is expensive , it keep constant tension by computer control . It make correct loosen tension.
So it can string uniformity tension overall .
In SHUTTLE HOUSE we have used 5 string machine mainly 2 newest computer control electric machine .
*made by YONEX ES5PRO

5. •Main current string one piece (2 knot)

•Shuttle house has string one piece (2 knot) . If you want us to string conventional 2 pieces (4knot) especially , request to us in advance.
A few loosening occurs by all means when both ends of string are bundled and stopped to one of the problems when string is raised. It compares with stopping Cc to two past length and breadth by four places when it is a method of division and raising, the bundled part is canceled putting one it raised in string in one length and breadth, and Semi and the amount surge are canceled in two places
Other advantage oppositely , two piece (4 knot) give string stress , it cause break or transformation .
One piece (2 knot) string alternately when string 75% warp the stress is greatly reduced compared with 2 piece (4 knot).
Especially, string that crawls the outside of the frame decreases and externals are
beautiful it is not a function side.
There is certainly a disadvantage oppositely, too.
It takes twice time compare with 2 piece (4 knot)
And it takes stress to string a little
We string with care not to give stress keeping shift string .
One piece (2 knot) need special tool starting crip etc .
We diagram the way of one piece (2 knot) following .

6. •The easy way of one piece ( 2 knot)

•The part that becomes a corporate secret is omitted. . Please understand it .

The picture of top and end of string machine is thin , so it cause transformation or break load one point on frame .
In SHUTTLE HOUSE in spite of one piece(2 knot) or 2 pieces (4 knot) we use attachment , reduce the load on the racket.
The string of part of center make neutral parts to not be able to finish pulling in hinge clamp on structurally string machine .
It can't get uniformity tension all over.
It is used starting clamp warp start for having precisely tension each string .
It string each warp to be removing tension loss in frame .
After finished warp , it start to string woof .
Because of 1 piece (2 knot) , set the starting clamp in short side ,it make two hinge clamp use . And string long side .
If it pulled quickly , it cause easy to snap because of friction make split to malt string coating .
For prevent it , pull slowly to make shift string by oar or finger .
It will finish to set the square in order at last .

This is a picture of frame end side .
1 piece (2 knot) looks beautiful because of two knot.
