    the NS9000 3U is too light. IMO the 2U is much better.

    It's okay. You can get the 2U version from Mister Keen anyway.

    KICK! Warranty is most important for me unless it's a $75 or less racket. Then, they are disposable.

    Okay, one boomstick is ready for action. I will let Master Vining of the Wolff Clan to check out if the strings are up to his standard.

    $18 CAD to US = ~$15.15USD! That's a very good rate.

    Do you take transcountry house calls to SoCal?

    At the rate I'm going I'll be at the great Panda level of string breakage. All three racquets within a couple days - two last night alone. ( my opinion of this Gosen Pro -70 is changing)

    Had to use Darth's Mp-99 at one point. The Darth-Wolff team up is coming into form now that I can move a little better. No one was distracted by my flashy pink nails ( my little girl needed to try out her new make-up stuff for Christmas and I was the only volunteer)

    I'm about the same rate - I charge $10 plus string, plus string up to 25 lbs. After that I charge $14 as with my winn machine I have to take extra time.


    Hey Pete get some sleep!

    I don't charge anything for stringing!

    But I don't string for just anyone either. I only string for myself and my double's partner and on occasion a few others.

    that's because most people don't have the bamboo you requested for your service
