yes his stringer had the tough job of re-stringing all those bust rackets with very high gauge natural gut with tubing in all the grommets which protects the gut from premature breakage. I wouldn't want to have strung for pistal pete.

yup. friend of mine strung for pete during the Salem Open in Hong Kong. it was tedious inserting all the tubing. and pete's racket weight was just below 400g. managed to take some pics with pete and his coach as well. got pete to autograph the photo too. i'd like to post it here but i don't know how to do it. and regarding lead tapes... he did have some lead at the tip but it's really to match them to his specs.
anyway we managed to string for chang and a few other players too. :)

Sweet. If you can scan the picture and save it on your computer, then all you have to do is register and upload it to a free photo hosting site, like www.photobucket.com, and copy the link here.
