    My parents have been considering buying a racquet stringing machine. I play tennis, makes some sense. My brothers however, play badminton...which leads to me question. Do string machines also string badminton racquets? Do I need to buy anything separately...etc?

    A lot of them do, even cheap dropweights. You just need to make sure you use the right portion of the weight (nothing extra here), badminton strings (duh!), and possibly some adaptors for mounting depending on your model of machine and racquet.

    Alpha Revo 4000 or the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus are the two I recommend as do many on these boards.

    If you're planning on upgrading later after this machine, just get the Revo 4000. They should be coming in in a couple of weeks, but the wait list is long, yet worth it.
