I do have two Yonex Carbon racquets that sitting in the closet needed to re-string like 15yrs ago and have not play competitively in close to 20yrs so probably not worth it.
You don't have to use fixed clamps for badminton, unless you plan on stringing a lot of badminton rackets. You can use badminton flying clamps for the crosses and fixed clamps for the mains. Badminton flying clamps are less than $20 for a pair. Though I heard Yonex flying clamps are better. If you do want to buy badminton fixed clamps, and you own a Gamma, Alpha, Eagnas, or similar machine. I highly recommend the Prince style Dual Clamps, available from Watdon or Arfaian. (Both from Europe) For about $70 shipped.

Dual Clamp on the right. Eagnas on the Left.

Machines: Gamma 6004 2-point w/ Wise 2086 & Babolat Sensor Dual
