    Hi. Sorry if someoen posted this answer before but i already searched and couldn't find in the hundreds of posts.:(

    Can i just ask to see if tad's stringing job is any good? I phoned them and said the total time to string it takes only 20-30 min! I really need to get my racquet strung before the C2 invitational tournament, cuz i broke my strings. :crying:

    Thanks again, because i also phoned C2 and said it takes up to 3 days! i can't wait that long :crying:

    Tad's is very good for stringing. Same day service. Sometimes if you need it right now, they could do it and you can observe.

    The owner Gary, can do it within 20 minutes (assumption: no distraction from customers, phone, and ringing up people).

    Any other questions?

    Hope this helps.

    Seems good. Not sure when Gary comes when the store opens but I would recommend you to give the store a call now to get the answer.

    Good luck in the tournament =). I'm not going to tournament since I play for the exercise even thou I play competitive.

    Ok thanks. I'll call them probably tomorow cuz the store is almost closed. The person i was talking to seemed to be in a rush.

    Good luck in your training!

    Thanks.

    That sounds like that was Gary himself. It's normal, sounds a bit rush as he's like probably doing something at the same time while on the phone.

    If it is Thursday that you'll be dropping off your racquet, you might meet the original store owner "Tad", he still shows up to take care of the store.

    He's a really great gentleman, with silver grey hair, a sparkle in his eye, and still full of vitality.

    I'm pretty sure he can get your racquet re-string on same day also, just ask him.

    Cheers!
