Is it 2016/17 already?

Not sure where 2015/16 went!

The good news: I passed the 1000 mark this year - close to 2 miles of string used!

The bad news: Due to the poorly performing pound, suppliers are starting to raise prices as string is generally produced outside the UK.  I will be holding my prices until the new year, as this will be when I have to start using the higher priced string.

The area I can easily collect from has changed slightly, to anything west of a line from St Austell to Newquay.  East of this I can usually arrange something for you, but service may be a little slower.

James.

New season, new supplies!

So the 2014/15 season is kicking off, and I'm all stocked up and ready to go.

For some reason there have been a few rackets with 20+ split grommets over the summer.  I'm not sure of the cause, but it's very time consuming!  My best guess is manufacturers saving money, or maybe fake rackets?

Prices again kept the same for this season :)

Update

Just a quick post, in case you're reading this and are wondering if this site is still current.  It is, and I am still stringing.  It's been another busy season, with an extra rush in the last week!

2012/2013 Season

Welcome back to the new season, I hope your pre-season training has gone well!

It's been busy as usual, as everyone gets their rackets prepared before September.  I have again been able to keep prices the same as last season, due to string suppliers keeping their prices at last season's level.

My collection area has increased slightly this year.  If you can't get your racket to St Austell, I can collect across Mid-Cornwall between Newquay, Wadebridge, Bodmin, Fowey and Truro.  Further west, you can drop them in to Pool, Redruth.  A postal service is also available.

2011/2012 Season

It's a new season, and things have been very busy.  I have been able to keep prices at the same level as last year, and can now offer a mail stringing service.

I am able to collect/deliver within Mid Cornwall - from Fowey to Falmouth on the south coast.  Outside of this area , but still within Cornwall, give me a call and we should be able to meet somehow.

The price for a mail restring will be as per the list to the left, plus £6.50 for return delivery, insured to £100.  If your racket is worth more than this, then please let me know.

If you require a mail restring, please contact me for a quote, and I will provide an address to send your racket to.

James Does Strings!

Welcome to my blog, designed to be a web presence for my stringing services.  I only string BADMINTON rackets, as this is the sport I play myself.  It means that I know what I would want from a stringer, and aim to achieve this level of service for others.

I started stringing my own rackets in 2001, and eventually started stringing other players' rackets.  I string in my spare time, and this means I can keep my prices down.  Over the past few years I have strung over 400 rackets for all levels of player, from social to county.
