    How many string jobs can you do with a reel of string?
    I'm considering buying a reel, because my local stringer allows customers to bring their own string.

    It depends.

    - Single strand or 2?
    - 95sq in? 100? 105?
    - 16x18? 16x19? 18x20?

    Well, if you base it on the standard numbers it looks like this:

    660ft reel based on 40 ft sections (standard pack of string).

    660/40 =16.5 "packs" of string or 40 ft sections.

    A reel of around 660' should get you somewhere between 16-19 stringjobs depending on the racquet ,stringer, pattern, etc.
