    in asia/asean, it is much cheaper to string.
    bg series, vary from RM20-30, that is below USD10

    Story: Good guy to deal with. Gives warranty if string break within 2 weeks.

    I really wonder how the string warranty can apply. To me, if I know someone very well, and the string breaks within 1 or 2 sessions, I don't mind to give a free re-string, with some careful inspection of the racket / gromments.

    However, it's impossible to apply such rules in general, if you don't know how hard a player can smash, how often he plays, and how many off-center hits he can get. I understand it's frustrating to see a $20 job gone in the wind in like 10 days, but from the stringer prospective, I do need to protect my own interest as well.

    Btw, if I only use 1 racket, with BG85/Bg80 on for 23 or 24lbs, I am pretty sure I will snap the string in 2 weeks, as I do a lot of slices. So, if there's a warranty, I will definitely let that stringer handle my own rackets, if I want to put my own honesty aside.

    Sorry, the warranty is for labor only. You still need to pay for the string.

    Consider in North America, the labor is pretty much 75% of the cost, I am still holding on my position to give any promise regarind "stringing warranty".

    I agree. However, I do business with him before and he is very good at the warranty stuff.

    I am checking into more stores in Chicago area. As you can see, I am calling a lot of places in US to get prices. (Thank to the company I work for, they pay for my call at work)

    No doubt this person is nice and helpful. If he's willing to help the local community and help the sport in general, he definitely gain my full respect. My intend to bring up this issue, is not against a particular person or business firm, I just don't think the "good willingness" can be set as a "suppose to be standard" cross the whole industry.

    Story (not too long) Excellent quality, if you bring your own strings it's about $9.57561USD for just labour.

    Note the Prices above does not have tax included in yet.
