    my average is about 35 minutes... i take my time. my fastest was just under 25 minutes. this is on automatic machine. haven't tested on manual machine, but i can pull faster on the manual.

    i can finish the mains in about 6-7 minutes depending on the machine... sometimes the gripper doesn't grip too steadily. my trouble is the mains as i do take some time to make sure the string is straight before it is pulled so u don't get like this slight curve for the crosses plus it would give better tensioning because itz straight and not curved.

    oh yeah... i string tensions 24lbs or higher faster than under 24lbs because crosses are easier to weave.

    How about seven hundred racquets a week?

    Assuming a seven-day working week, that's 100 every day.
    Assuming a ten-hour working day, that's 10 racquets an hour.
    (By the way, no machines... just humans.)

    That's six minutes to string a racquet, isn't it?
    Six minutes

    Is this the hole stringing time on a preweave racket then it could sound realistic. But never on a non preweaving ones.

    The most time consuming thing is the 4-6 strings that have to b introduced in an otherwise already occupied grommet by the vertical strings.

    U are good, what I need is practice. This is a hobby along with playing but I have plans for the future. We already have our own private court.
