    It can vary quite a bit, depending upon the racquet, string pattern [i.e. number of mains and crosses], actual head size, etc.---- anywhere from 32' to 39' [with some to spare]. {I've never really seen a Midplus take a full 39'.}

    Larry, what kind of stringing machine do you have? Just curious of what a USRSA stringer uses. I own a TENEX glide clamps, drop weight.

    Katsuhide, go to www.tennis4all.com. Under string partern click wilson and scroll to your racket model. It will tell you how many feet you need for the mains and crosses. I could tell how many feet but under PS 6.1 classic there are two sizes 110sq and the 95 sq. You probably play with the 95. If so it 19ft for the mains and 16ft for the crosses, a total of 35ft.

    When you string using sets, just take a measurement of how much extra you use...then you can use exactly that much when you take off the reel.
