    And speaking of AlanK (and KevinY), they are speed demons on those ES5ProTech machines...which are a dream to use.

    Most Popular Racket: Voltric 80 then NS9900, then Arc 10

    Total rackets received to string: 235+ so far...

    ...we are so backed-up.
    Marc is using ARC7 new version/color i think.

    wow. so most players have switched to VT80?

    235 is crazy. just for the first day. 3 stringers will take 80 each.

    Marc uses the Arc7....for 35/37, he breaks impressively few strings
    I wouldn't have thought the NBG95 was so popular....personally, I hate it, and several others in my club agree with that sentiment...but perhaps it gets better at high tensions^^ (I only had 27-28lbs)

    Yes, Sattawat is a very good stringer and one of the top U.S. Single's Players (as you know).

    Yes, Panda is using the lone ES5Pro, a great machine.

    Amazing Marc doesn't break strings. Panda would be worried about the racket breaking, not strings.

    Panda is thinking about redoing the String Review because different strings may play different at different tensions.

    For instance, BG65 and NBG95 are great strings at 30lbs. or higher. But lower tensions, for Panda, they are just so-so.
    Thin strings play great at 20-28lbs. but as you get higher, they start to die-off for power. So it's all relative.

    Do you have to charge the non-Yonex players?

    Zwiebler should be using the white ARC7 btw ... (ah I see I was a page behind )

    Agreed. I find the BG65Ti and ZM70 to be quite enjoyable at 28+, whereas the ZM67 gets worse for me from 28 up. Really thin strings (ZM62, AP62) are not advisable at 27+....I broke my last 4 of them on slightly mishit drives

    It isn't not just a matter of the best feel for the pros, it is mostly a matter of not having to restring every 12 minutes :-), so durability is most often the key factor when choosing strings..

    I am also curious, is there any players supplying their own strings, or does everyone use strings provided by the organizers?

    Errrr Sir, your reply to me didn't make sense but yes, durability is many or most times a factor.

    Yonex is one of the main sponsors of the U.S. Open so the string and stringing is free to players, coaches, "affiliates" using Yonex rackets. The first priority is getting the rackets strung for players who have matches coming up.

    No one has supplied their own strings so far...why would you when it's free?

    Players who are sponsored by other manufacturers need to pay but not sure how much.

    Fascinating description of a tournament from stringers' point of view.
    Dan, perhaps you could share some video of the set up and perspective from where you are. A behind-the-scenes look at the atmosphere of a big tournament would be interesting to those of us light-years away from the stars.

    Maybe Dinkalot can put to rest the rumors of the repainted Z-Slash that Taufik uses and other player's rackets

    rumor has it that Korea now travels with their own stringers. is that true? have you seen any rackets from the Korean team?

    I never realized that stringing at tournaments is free! remind me when the time comes about, so I don't end up paying someone else and getting it strung the day before. I always thought you had to pay...

    I guess it depends on size of tournament. I'll probably play in the Southern Open and I don't think it's free but I can check.
