    Is 30ft of string enough for a whole racquet? (16x19)

    Probably not unless it is a standard size racket.

    Nope. Just skip a few holes and you got one of those open pattern spin sticks.

    Ok, thanks guys. I was finishing out my reel and that's was left. :( Bummer but at least I can use it for a half set.

    Only if it's veeerrry stretchy...definitely not if it's a poly or (dare I say it without cringing) Kevlar.

    Here's the way to never get stuck with an unusable length at the end...each use off a reel should be noted subtractively...660' minus 36'=624'; 624' minus 38'= 586' and so on.

    When you get down to 75' or so, make sure you have a fresh reel to use if the needed length puts you at an awkward remnant length and then wait for the right frame to deal with the depleted reel. It's almost like "301" in darts.

    I use little stickers on the reels to remind me what I have left. It's also a good idea to peel out that 75' length and measure it to make sure you didn't goof on one of the prior measurements.

    Well knowing that most rackets use string lengths of 20'x18', i'm gonna have to say no on the 30' of string. But someone please correct me if i'm wrong.
