Thanks in advance to those who reply that have traveled down the road I am wanting to take.

I am relatively new, been stringing for about two years and should like to know the best course to expand my stringing experience.

What I mean by this is I would like to take the next steps to stringing at tourny's. How does one get to this step?

I am about to take the usrsa test soon to get that cert, than the MRT.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

I love stringing, and am quite meticulous with all racquets that I string. My speed has improved drastically with no impact on quality.

Any help/ advice is appreciated from those who currently string at the higher level.

Thanks

Neil

If I had one nugget of wisdom to give any stringer wanting more................ATTEND THE 2012 GSS Symposium at Saddlebrook!!!

You will meet some of the most accomplished and knowledgeable stringers that natural selection has created. If you want move to the next level, you'll see what it takes. If you're already talented, you will be noticed.

Even the novice stringer benefits from this event greatly-
