I don't really think SA qualifies as a TW competitor and so I was wondering why the heck their luxilon along with other strings like psgd are ridculously expensive.

I think it includes stringing but it's still pretty high. SA and other sporting stores usually cater to more recreational players who don't know much about tennis and don't know that better deals exist (TW)

Mark todays date on a pkg and see if its still there next year. Or 10 yrs from now.

They set it that way so they make the same profit whether or not they string it up for the customer. I'm pretty sure they string for $.01 (so a $35.99 ALU pack can be strung up for a total of $36.00) if you buy it from there. Either way, avoid buying strings from there and getting a racquet strung from there at all costs. Of course there are exceptions and there may be a good stringer working at one, but the chance of that is 1% at the very most.
