    Hello all,
    i'm not too familiar with string and stringing so got a very important question,
    the question is,how many racquets could be strung with a reel of string? i.e. a luxilon string which is 38.5 m long,how many racquets does it string? is it just one racquet or several of them?
    thanks in advance...:oops:

    There is no "stencil" for the Babolat racquets. Use black stencil ink on the two pairs of strings inside the bars on the racquet.

    With a reel of string, that is, 660 feet, you can string roughly 18 rackets.

    12m will only string 1 frame unless you want to hybrid the PH with a lower cost syn gut as many do. Then the set of PH will do 2 sticks.

    Its a different, thicker string which many people mistake with PHT because of its colour.

    Let me preface this with... I am not an expert about pro's strings, and I could easily be wrong but...

    As I understand it, Babolat Duralast is not available in the U.S. (I know TW does not carry it.) Since the U.S. is such a large string market for Babolat, I think they want people to believe that Nadal uses PHT - which is widely available in the U.S. So I think there might be a little "creative marketing" going on in this situation. I think Duralast and PHT are fairly similar strings though but not identical.
