    What is/are the best stringing forums?

    Stringforum.net
    Grand slam stringers .com

    Other??? I'm surprised the USRSA doesn't have a forum.

    I would say TW, and the old GSS forum. I haven't seen the new GSS forum, as I don't see the point in paying a yearly subscription to get the same info one could get here and other sites, such as the ones you mentioned.

    Drak--I haven't been to GSS for a while. Are you saying they charge now? Wow. Probably won't be on their site either if that's the case.

    There are two sites in one. The old site is still there, but no one checks it. I assume everyone is on the pay site now. Though I don't know who is on there, since I'm not a member.

    Steve, Lakers4Life summed it up.

    GSS started a new site for paying members, so the old site is pretty much dead, which is too bad. Lots of great info was shared on that site.

    One other note,,,,, the UKRSA also had a great site, which was similar to GSS, but I haven't been on there in a while, so not sure if it has changed as well. It also included a great section for racquet ball and squash.

    When I spoke to Tim, he said the new site has features the old site did not have. He had to pay someone to build that site, so I guess to recoupe the costs he decided to charge a membership.

    I saw a login on the UKRSA site, but did not notice a registration link.

    Just go to www. grand slam stringers. com (no spaces of course) then click on "Forum" then choose "Original GSS Forum" (the other option is "Paid Members Forum").

    The new site is different. You use your real name, they have articles along with the forum.

    GSS Paid Forum

    The GSS paid subscription site is $49 per year. Does anyone know if it is worth that amount? Is the audience larger or made up of different members than TT?
