    Does anyone know how many racquets a 200m (660 feet) reel of string will string?

    I currently use the kfactor 95 16x18..

    Thanks

    Check out how much string that racket requires at the Klipper site then do a simple division. My guess is around 18 rackets.

    with an 16x18, you should be able to squeeze out 18. If you do 1 piece, you might manage 19, but depending on the price of the reel, that may be a negligible savings.

    generally between 15-19 depending on patern and head size

    Using 1-piece stringing, you can string that racket with 33' (32 if you have a crank where the tensioner can get up next to the frame). That would allow you to string it 20 times.
