Racket Restring ERR is located on the West side of Singapore. Since 2007 till to date, ERR’s founder, Mr Eric Chuar has restringed more than 13,500 badminton rackets.
Eric decided to go into the restring business because of his students. They told him that they always send their rackets to Queensway Shopping Centre to restring. There it was not only costly but also takes a long time.
After much thinking, he decided to buy a stringing machine in 2007. He bought at that time, the newest stringing machine, FLEET MANUAL machine.
All the while he did restringing for his ERR academy students free of charge. Eric is also one of the Certified Badminton coaches located in the West.
He started to change to Electronic Stringing Head in the early 2012. This is due to a few new important racket restring technology.
In 2012, the racket stringing technology implemented 6- point mounting frame system. The old manual machine has only 2.
The old manual tension head has no quick adjustable pole and aluminium automatic brake.
When high tension is required, the manual tension head is not accurate. Accuracy is needed as he is always doing stringing for high level players.
This new 6- point mounting frame also prevent the racket from cracking.
Automatic brake helps to save the stringing lead time as Eric is kept busy with his badminton coaching.
So he decided to implement new electronic stringing machine with the above 3 important features.
Eric started to learn restringing after buying a manual restringing machine. Today he is using YONEX PROTECH 8 World No 1 stringing machine to string for National and International players.
He learned his technique from Yonex, Victor and Gosen haribito. He is also able to handle Forten and Li Ning’s stringing pattern. His knowledge skills cover a wide range of different stringing patterns. Therefore he is able to handle all his customers different requests.
Every stringing pattern has different benefits to suit each individual player. Eric is also a Certified Stringer with USRSA by CRSF for both Badminton and Tennis.
His master is Mr Xie who is a famous tester in Taiwan and China. Mr Xie has more than 20 years of stringing experience with USRSA
He always stress that anyone who wants to do restringing should start from basic first. This will give you a good foundation.
He is also against any rush job. He says you should always restring with your heart and soul.
This way, the owner will feel your effort when they see and feel their racket. They will also feel your restringing skill when hitting the racket during play.
After being in this job for 11 years, he knows how to make sure that all the strings are expanded equally.
Eric’s main career is that of Certified Badminton Coach in Singapore. Thus, anything related to badminton, he is very interested and eager to learn.
He is always updating his knowledge and experiences.
