Racquet Stringer

Forgive me for putting this in the gm but, I am going to buy a racquet stringer and I want some serious help/feedback because I know nothing about them.

Anyone know the best type to get? Where to get the cheapest price etc?

thanks in advance

Re: Racquet Stringer

All depends what sort of standard you want. If you're doing it just for your own racquets then the one I'm about to suggest is probably unnecessarily pricey. I went through a few when I worked stringing racquets for a bit, and found the best one was the Babolat sensor stringing machine. Very easy to use and the machine does most of the work. The one at the top at the following link, I think you'd be able to get it significantly cheaper than that price though.

Re: Racquet Stringer

Check out the message boards at tennis warehouse. I believe there is quite a debate there about racquet stringers and such.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Racquet Stringer

Yea, I found some good articles on racquet stringers at http://www.sptennis.com/stringer.asp#FAQ

I don't think I want a drop weight one eventhough they are the cheapest, they seem like a pain in the ass.
