    Thanks for posting, Topaz. Maybe the mods can move this thread to the "Pros' Racquets and Gear" section, as it seems more in keeping with those threads (where the other pro tournament stringing threads seem to be).

    I thought I was the only power pad user left. I have a heck of a time finding any stringers that even carry power pad material (just leather pieces I know). I've only found one stringer even willing to buy them and put them on for me.

    Still a few out there. Stepanek comes to mind.

    The centering of the pad in that pic would never make it onto the court in my stringroom:-?
