    Well the last year and 1 month I have been keeping all the packages of the strings I have strung and here it is.

    30x ALU POWER
    8x PRince Lighting
    6x Prince Poly Spin 3D
    3x BB Original
    9x Prince Poly Spin 3D Hybrid with Prince Multi
    11x Red Code
    2x Black code
    18x Wilson Enduro Pro
    10x Lux. adrenaline
    5x Solinco Tour Bite
    1x Head Synthetic Gut
    2x MSV Focus Hex
    1x Dunlop M-fil tour.

    Those were all for me except maybe 8 string jobs. Many have been in Hybrids including ALU POWER, Wilson Enduro, Solinco Tour Bite.


    How about you guys?

    How often do you play? That seems like a hell of a lot of string jobs for one man in a year.

    I have played 345 days straight. I am now using the current set-up in my sig with about 20 string savers on the sweetspot.

    Just for kicks, I just purchased a set of Big Banger Ace 18, and Klip Legend 17. So I can add that to my list. Now I need to know which string I want in the mains...

    I use BB Ace 18 in my Dunlop and it is a great string my serves get crazy spin with that stuff. Really bites into the ball.

    I'm a cheap *******.

    1 and 1/2 reels of Topspin Cyberflash 17g
    1 and 1/2 reels of OG sheep micro 16g.
    6 x Wilson NXT 17.

    When I'm feeling generous, and when I find it for "cheap", I get some NXT 17. I love the stuff but I get less than 6 hours before they snap. Although snapping it is my favorite part because they usually play the best just before they pop :)

    just out of curiosity, how much $ have you dropped on string? Also, where do you live, 345 days straight sounds like paradise.

    My parents pay for it and I would guess around $1200 plus a year if not more. I string my own racquets(thank the great lord). I live up North where it snows, and it's cold and it snows and its cold.. Did I mention it snows and it's cold? I play indoors whenever it snows/rains

    how do you afford indoor costs?!
    It's insane in my area, averaging from $50-80 for an hour. I'd rather freeze my ass outside to get some tennis.

    Dang, that's quite the string budget. Wouldn't reels be way more convenient? Anyway, I hope you thank you parents frequently. :)

    Ditto, I played outdoors until early November. I'm fine until around 10c. In my area, to play indoors it's around $4000+ a year when you factor in membership fees and court costs.

    The best is Uniprix Stadium, where the Roger's cup is held. It doubles as a tennis club with 20 indoor courts (ATP quality baby) and it's public because it's run by Tennis Canada meaning you don't need a membership. Court fees are $20 an hour but there's a catch..............they're renovating until march and it's impossible to get a court since only 5 are open. :(

    Oh well, time to get fat!

    hahaha, wow that's unfortunate. The closest thing i have to professional quality courts is the new stadium they're making in NY. Sadly, i heard it's about $200 an hour so it doesn't look like I'm going there anytime soon
