    Via another thread that i accidentally hijacked, i asked a question: "What strings do you stock for yourself/customers?"

    I mostly mean just reels, but if you have strings that you keep a few single sets of for special customers/needs then let me know!

    Should be interesting for sure to see what company people keep.

    Reel of SPPP, alpha gut, PSGD. However, I am going to try out a setup of isospeed pro crosses and klip legend gut that I was told about on the boards.

    Check out [/U]]jonolau's thread on string stock. DD's posts #12, #46, Masamusou's #34, and ambro's #45 are especially helpful.

    I'm stocking mostly budget strings, stringing for high school players.
    [reel] Gosen OG Micro 16 & 17
    [reel] Topspin Poly Polar 17
    [reel] Forten Competition Nylon 15 & 16
    Tecnifibre E-Matrix 16
    Tecnifibre Multifeel 16 & 17
    Tecnifibre Spinfire 16 & 17
    Topspin Cyberflash 17
    Prince Lightning XX 16 & 17
    Head Master Synthetic 16L

    I usually keep a few sets of "name brand" synthetic gut on hand, whichever is cheapest at the moment, so it's the Head Master right now. A while ago I had the Yonex 50 when I picked several sets up really cheap.

    Lightning XX and E-Matrix are usually my biggest hits. Surprisingly, I string more of these than synthetic gut. Used to favor Gosen JC, but then the polyester craze popped up, and Poly Polar does the job fine at a cheaper cost. I carry the 16g nylon mostly for my own use, when I'm playing around with hybrids, and I don't plan on picking up any more Cyberflash (only have one set left).

    To the OP, good luck stringing for customers with that dropweight + flying clamps. I wouldn't have the balls to do that.

    I've got a reel of OG Sheep Micro 16, which satisfies the majority of people who don't care what they use.

    For those that care, they have taken to my Luxilon ALU and SPPP.

    I just string for people I meet out on the tennis court, it is not really a busines and I wouldn't call them "customers".
