    The local sport's store here near the mall called "Dick's" sells Prince Synthetic Gut 16g and 17g.

    I wanna get this except. They are charging 22.95 for one set of these strings! Is it okay to file a complaint or something? I am sure they are leaps and bounds over "suggested retail."

    No, they sell it at that price because it includes stringing. You are much better off ordering from TW.

    I know how that is Fish, I got my racquets strung with Duraflex 16 and it cost me $25 a racquet. It sounded a little high but it is to late now.

    The local sporting goods chain by me does the same thing, & they recent upped their prices from $19.95 to $23.95 for Prince Syn Gut. Amazing considering even if they're charging you for labor, it's still only a $4 string. They're making $20 off every customer. The local head pro @ the club I work @ only charges $12-$15 for a Prince Syn Gut string job if the customer brings his/her own string & $18-$20 if the pro supplies it. Also you'll get a better string job @ the club.
