    lol yes john at LC does string racquets and does a great job, at the CWC they do sell 68ti if i remember correctly from my last visit there but i cannot remember a price >.< but their stringer is good i havent had any problems with them. The only thing though is that it can sometimes take a little while till you can get your racquet back, other than that its a good place to get it strung.

    If you get to know the members inside CWC, alot of them restring racquets in about a day for much cheaper than the pro shop does.

    LC, well technically its VSLC, stands for Village Square Leisure Center and its up in the NE. yeah CWC can take a while, but they dont have 68ti??? wtf i could have sworn they had 68it, for fast service yeah id say check "whats your racquet" not sure if they sell it and then "racquet central" although i dont think they would ahve the string they do string fast i usually get my racquet back in a few hours but then some of their products are a little more expensive...might wanna call 1st before going there.

    when u say that u think they sell 68ti, do u mean just selling, because when i checked the stringing list then i was there, it only showed 65 and 65ti. maybe they sell but do not string 68.
    oh well

    Lets just say, that last April, when i ask CWC to string my NS8 with BG80.
    I go the responds "What kind of string are those, i don't think they make that"
    That was the responds i got from CWC, so i just took it and strung at WYR (Whats Your Racket)

    Which area are you in? if you're in the NE, i would suggest let John at VSLC do it.

    Stringing cost around $22 - $24 whether it's BG65 to BG80 and inbetween, and he supplies the strings for you. However, from time to time he may run out of BG80 and other types since they're very popular at VSLC. You could also buy strings from somewhere else and he'll string it for ~$10.

    VSLC does not actually string racquets, but John goes there very often that it's very easily to catch him.

    Both Cooler and I string raquets. I tend to stay below 26 lbs and I only have a two point machine. I know Cooler goes higher, upwards of 30 lbs.

    Cooler is in Calgary. I live in Strathmore, but work downtown Calgary.

    I'm down to some Bg-65 and Gosen 88 at the moment until I order more string. If you have string I charge $10 a racquet.
