If you are reading this you may have a new found passion for your strings and tension. If you have already checked out our July Podcast some of the info below may help to give you a better knowledge of how to create the ultimate racket for your squash bag!! The info and links below are hopefully a little additional info to the podcast show featuring the awesome String Doctor. And of course if you have not yet heard the show we have embedded it into this short but sweet blog, just for you.
On this months show, we are joined by John Sharpe AKA “The String Doctor”. We Talk about racket stringing, a new sport called Padel, and Jamie’s latest fundraising.
The Squash Pod recommends playing around with the tension and string. If you have just purchased a factory string racket you may find that its worth exploring a tension and string that works better for your game.
- Have a look at the types of string available and have a think about what you prefer. https://www.string-doctor.com/string-choices-1
- Have a look at this link from the String Doctor outlining tension ranges. https://www.string-doctor.com/tensions-tips
- See what strings the pros are using and copy them. You can purchase usually 9 meter rolls which is enough for your chosen stringer to then string at your requested tension. Your stringer should charge you less for providing the strings yourself. https://www.string-doctor.com/pros-corner-1
- If you are still hooked with stringing take a look at how a racket is restrung. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAgKSZu9PIU#action=share
