View Full Version : Name 2 or 3 reels that I should keep in stock for customers!

I have no plans of having a high volume stringing business, but I would like to string a few racquets a week for other people. I use Pro Supex Big Ace myself, so I will already have that on hand for anyone else who is interested. Aside from that I was thinking of keeping a synthetic gut in stock, maybe either PSGD, Gosen OG Micro, or Pro Supex Titan, and maybe one other type of string. Anyone have any recommendations? Should I just buy 16g?

PSGD, some poly and a softer multi like NXT or PSGM

Gosen OG Micro is a good one. My customers love the stuff for its crispness, feel and ok durability for a softer string. PSGD is the biggest selling string on the planet...when I worked in our local pro shop its all people wanted.

You could also get a reel of Pro Supex Maxim Touch. For the price its alot of string...I like it more than NXT and X-One. Again ive got quite a few customers hooked on this stuff.

Its always useful to have a few packs of luxilon, PHT etc around.

Def. the Gosen OG Micro and a simple synthetic gut or a good poly. I use either Pro Supex w/ spirel flex or PSGD.

Pro Supex Spiral Flex plays fairly similar to PSGD but costs much cheaper. It is stiffer than Titan.

definately PSGD but maybe a soft poly

Gosen OG Micro
Wilson Sensation

although it is cheaper to get PSGD and Sensation by the packs sometimes. For poly, I would say poly polar.

Somewhat competent people seem to love "name" strings as that is what they see in stores.

I'm all about Kirschbaum Competition. It's a great bang for your buck poly reel, and my favorite poly overall.

Prince doesn't give you much of a break buying reels. Wilson Stamina is approx 25% cheaper by the reel. So that's one I'd keep. Big Ace is a good poly to keep.
