BACKGROUND OF GOSEN HARIBITO PROJECT
Our ultimate goal is to provide the most emotional impression for the audience and the players in the sport world.
GOSEN has been in the industry for more than 60 years and is the world's first manufacturer of the "synthetic string". Our historical roots and passion for racket strings are the key concepts that underline the HARIBITO Project.
For all players to perform at their highest potential, we believe that there are 3 essential elements that must be considered, namely: 1) Quality strings, 2) Accurate stringing machine, 3) Professional stringing skills.
GOSEN focuses on all of these elements by producing high quality strings, top grade computerised stringing machines and unique stringing patterns and HARIBITO techniques. This forms the HARIBITO PROJECT.
In Japan, the term HARIBITO can be closely related to as a "doctor of strings". A certified HARIBITO member, is a stringing specialist. They have in-depth knowledge about strings, qualified HARIBITO skills and is able to provide advice to help players in finding a suitable string and tension that matches their skills and abilities.
GOSEN's own "GOSEN STRINGING PATTERN" is used in major international tournaments. This pattern has been in use for decades in both tennis and badminton, and endorsed by professional coaches, players and managers around the world. The "GOSEN STRINGING PATTERN" is regularly reviewed and improved upon; based on current rackets in the market and feedback from users.
As professional stringers become qualified HARIBITO members, the "GOSEN STRINGING PATTERN" and HARIBITO SKILLS can be experienced by players around the world.
GOSEN holds regularly seminars to share the latest information and HARIBITO techniques to all participants GOSEN will continue to expand the HARIBITO PROJECT to create a new standard in the racket sports and stringing industry.
