    haha, i've seen and played with rackets strung by you, and i wish i lived close enough to your shop so that i could get my rackets strung by you instead. i have no doubt in your stringing prowess.

    AK, looks like youre really getting into this. May I join in and help? I trained with Kwun and Jin, and I string as well. For the person administering the review and for the players, what parameters are they going to be looking at? What specific measurable differences are we looking at? Or is this going to simply be a blind test to see if there are measurable/noticeable difference? Lets get scientific!!!

    NO!!! JUST KIDDING!!! YO the more the merrier!!! It is a String Fest!!! Festival!!! Those usually open to public, at least ours will be!!!Everyone is invited!!! My shop is in a warehouse setting so on the weekend the 9-5 Mon-Fri businesses are closed so we can use extra room to show off machines, maybe like a car show or something!! I might have a hook up at Papa Johns so pizza might be covered, there is a Mexican mini mart 2 shops down so if you guys want beer or soda pop they are right there. They have Tacos, Tacos, Tacos too!!! Good stuff!! Tell Kwun to get on this!!! Maybe 2nd weekend in Dec 1st weekend is Affinity Open so that not good then Alan T is out of the country, I really want his input. He is a good stringer, knowledgable and I want to see how I compare to him. I want to take part in this but I can give up my spot just to make it fun!!!

    Alan Kakinami this year @1000 rackets
    Kevin Yamaguchi @650 rackets
    Alan Tam@ at least 175+
    Derek Chen at least 100
    Jarold Cordero maybe by the end of the year 30
    Kwun???
    Can this be done?!!! I would love to do this!!
    i am like 100 lifetime and 21 this year. i only string for necessity.

    as for timing, i am dead busy until the end of the year and AlanT will be off to get hitched. so maybe January?

    sounds like we need to have photo and video coverage of this event also. sounds like it will be tons of fun.

    BC can provide some drinks and pizza.

    as for location... AK's shop will be the most logical place. AK?

    Hello to ALL!! Kwun what are your thoughts, January 23-24 for StringFest 1.0? This way there is more time to prepare, maybe find sponsors, invite more people and see if we can get some promotional stuff? Basically I need you to host, me co-host, and I am willing to do most of the leg work. Just need you there so it is Legit. SO TO ALL When KWUN CONFIRMS!!! ITS ON!!
