    God!

    And I can't even get string for THAT price! Forget labour.....

    I charge my service out cheap but I can't beat that kind of price! (oh yeah and I also WON'T do any rackets over below 18lbs or over 25lbs - for any Aussies reading this!)

    I think Yong might have spent 40hours on three racquets..............
    Haha .. not every hole took me 15 minutes to do
    But yes, i spent 5 hours on doing my first racket !!! okay, but i experienced all kind of newbie stringer problems, like a slipping clamp (i wondered, while doing the mains, one side had more tension than the other .... , one time i didn't properly fixed the swivel clamp on the base ...., first time doing a knot... , doing a missweave and discovered it during the second next cross... , heavy curling of the string during pulling through.... aarggr this is an irritating one! )

    My second (3 hours) and third racket (2 hours) went lots better..
    I'm looking forward in doing it in half an hour !!!

    Yesterday i played with my newly 23-24 lbs strung racket.. and the bird popped very nicely of the racket.

    I see it as a nice new dimension on my favourite sport.

    Btw great discussion on stringing techniques !!
