    Lucky you. I wish my tennis dealer was that cheap. It costs thirty three dollars to get it strung with reaction, but I am looking into getting my own stringer.

    God that is cheap. That is like paying $15.00 for the strings and $5.00 for labor. I wish I could pay that.

    If I buy the strings at the Sports Authority here the stringing is only .01$.

    the price of labor is included in the strings. that's why PSGD is like $15. also, a lot of them aren't experienced or reputable and there have been several cases where they strung frames incorrectly
