I have $1260.00 worth of just VS gut, (30 sets, $42/set)
Along with various reels of different strings, a great supply of various sets, =too much time to figure out, as this is for someone with extra time on their hands.I do have a good amout of $ in inventory.I do not have the massive supply that Steve Huff has, but what I do have are quality strings, and a decent supply.

I string at home, but I have at least $3-4000 in string inventory (which includes 15 sets of natural gut, 42 reels in different amounts, and around 200 other sets of string, some expensive like Luxilon, some not). Not to mention at least $500 in grip and overgrips, and over $500 in grommet sets. Plus, I have tubing, extra clamps, and extra Wise head etc. It adds up quickly. Good thing I don't play golf.

Omg... And I thought I had too many strings when I owned 1 reel of BA, one reel of Maxim Touch, two of BAM and one of PLII. Now I'm down to the PLII reel only, sold all other strings.

Plus some free sets like Black Magic, which I'll probably not try, and one MSV Hex 1.18mm which I'll probably try.

Actually . . . If you string for a "living" the customer supplies the string.

Um, I've never met a professional stringer who did not supply string. Ever. The big pro shop in the area carries virtually everything.

Wow you guys have a lot of string lol. Right now, I've got 1 Luxilon Alu Power 16L, 1 Luxilon Alu Power Rough 16L, 6x Forten Sweet 17...which is like ~$40. I am about to order more Red Code 17 and SPPP 17 to do further Hybrid Tests...but I suspect I will eventually settle on SPPP 17 (full job).

I have a bunch of brand new Luxilon reels and sets I want to get rid of too...
