    Hahahaha, cmon lets help the guy out. Where do you usually play tennis? If its at a tennis club, there should be a stringer there. Give him/her your racquet and ask for suggestions for string.

    You should be able to get a stringing service at a sports shop such as (of the few I have come to know in the US): *****, Sports Authority, Sports Chalet, Golf Smith etc..etc..I would expect this to be $15-20ish including basic string (such as a Prince Synthetic Gut with Duraflex, recommended).

    Otherwise you can find a stringer near you here:

    $60???

    We have ONE place in the surrounding probably ~40 miles that monopolises on tennis racquet stringing and he only charges $20 plus string costs. If it's going to cost $60 I SERIOUSLY advise buying a tennis racquet stringer- something like the Gamma X-2 or the Klippermate.

    They'll pay for themselves in probably only 3-4 stringings at that cost, plus you could string for friends and locals (once you get better at stringing) for much cheaper or free and drive the club's price down maybe.

    $60 is rediculous lol.

    $60! Does that come with dinner and movie also?

    If not, it had better be some premium gut and add'l racquet tweaking.

    :)
