I am stringing friends and some high school players..... just trying to make some xtra cash w/ little inventory. if they want a different string i will string it if they bring it.

i think thats a good starting point. Maybe add maxim touch as multi and get a couple sets of natural gut. And a reel of Luxilon Big Banger Alu

I would say starting out a reel of big banger alu is a big investment considering its $275 but I would reomend getting a reel of babolat addition and maybe a couple sets of xone. You wont make any money if you buy a but load of string and your new to stringinging. Good Start though and good luck!!!

Star makes a good point, BBA is big investment. There are a couple of other reels for half or even a third of the price that are comparable. Reel are great if they sell quickly.

I stock mainly Gosen OG SM 16 & 17 reels, and Gamma Synthetic 16 & 17. I string mainly for HS and recreational players.

You might also want to ask some of your players/customers, and see what they prefer so you might want to have thier string read for when they break. I carry an extra set of Prince ProBlend for one specific customer who prefers that.

Yeah I agree a nice multi like maxim would be great. Add another type of poly like big ace or cyber blue. Soft poly like them would make your inventory a bit more diversed.

Pro Supex is a nice poly for its price. SPPP as well.

Good luck!

thankx everyone........ i added maxim touch

Maxim touch is a good multi. but the 17g. is not very durable, if you want that string, I would advise to get the 16g.
