there was one guy who said 7-9 minutes
i was bored at work today so i timed myself. from the first pull to taking the racket off the machine it took 12 minutes 53 seconds. that was stringing a head youtek speed midplus, two piece in pacific powerline 1.28 on a pacific string digital 700
fastest I've done was a half an hour on a Klippermate
my best time is 12 min. with synthetic gut an 14 min. with a poly, on a TF 8000. my average is like 17 to 20 min.
Generally 30-40 mins on a crank. My son timed me secretly a couple of weeks ago on 2 jobs, one was 32 and one was 33 but I was in a hurry. Usually a bit longer in front of the tv with a beer.
we had a stringing contest once, I strung one with multi at 8 min 36 sec on a crank Thats the unofficial Danish record normally I do it in around 15 min without stress.
but ok I have been stringing ever since I got my first machine at 10 years old. when I was 12 I started stringing at my local sports-shop after school. I have been a full time stringer for some years and have been stringing 5 years at the copenhagen open in the 90´s. to sum it up I have been stringing pretty much every day for 23 years..
50-60 minutes on my Gamma X-2. I need to be like the guys who can do a string job in 25-30 minutes on an X-2!
35-40 minutes on a klippermate.
Same as jazar, pre-mounted approx 13 min. Including string cutting 16-17 min.
My fastest was set yesterday....................
9 minutes woohooo!
I did a contest with a friend and we both had a 300 16x18 to restring. He did it in 9:28, and i did it in 9:03..
pretty fast how long have you been stringing?
Only thing is, I was asleep.
45-50 on crank.. I've only done 4 or so string jobs using Gosen OG Micro 16G.
I could do it faster if I could find a way to weave all the way through without having to stop because my fingers start slipping on the string..
20 seconds on a prince god =] jk
uh regularly i string in about 20-30 min unless id have to cut all the strings and measure it out x.x
40-50 minutes now on drop weight. I'll get better eventually with all the practice I'm getting on my frames.
Kind of wish I had something a little faster though... But at least it works and it was cheap!
I can do about 30-35 min. on a crank and about 20 on a constant pull at the shop I help out at. Gotta love the foot pedal and electronic machine.
my record is 9 min 12 seconds on a bab star 5
100,000 frames on the same machine? That's at least 14 a day, with no days off, for 20 years.
I feel really slow... I haven't strung in a few weeks and I tried to string fast and it took me 32 minutes, I timed myself... Before I was stringing around 30 average, so I don't know how fast I can do it, but I should be trying to reduce my average time...
aobut an hr. on my dropweight, but then i take my time, and go slowly
30 minutes for an easy racquet (16x18) on my crank stringer...
It takes me between 60 and 90 minutes to string pretty much anything on my SP Swing. I've never tried to rush for a better time though, and usually have a movie or sports game on the tv.
The fastest racket I've ever done was a K90 with a 17g synthetic gut; I think it was 45min.
i've recently taken my time down to 11 mins 30, though it was on a prince graphite
average is about 30min on crank, record is 12min.
I have a 10 inch penis....
....but no seriously. A full 2-piece poly job takes me around 40 - 45mins. A 1-piece multi takes me about 35mins.
This is on my Bow Brand crank machine and i've been stringing for only the past 6 months.
Last year i worked fulltime at a tennis-store, so i have strung approx 7-8 rackets every day.
nah, more like 6-9K per year for 14 years. Most every working part has been replaced at least once though
on a prince p 20 I could string in under 15 minutes. on neos could never get under 25 minutes and rightfully so since it is better to pull crank at slow steady speed.
On a Gamma 5800 it takes me about 45 minutes watching tv from start to finish for a 2 piece gut/poly job. This includes cutting out the old strings, cutting open 2 new string packs and cutting the bundles in half, putting the remainders in ziploc baggies and labeling them. Mounting, stringing, and re-gripping. This is on slow pull, doubling the crosses with a pedal.
If it was a 1 piece, limp syngut off a reel, not watching tv, with the racquet already prepped and mounted I'm sure I could do it in 20 minutes. But that would be me going full out and doesn't sound like much fun
I guess the point is all the other "stuff" that goes with it usually takes as much or more time.
Youtek Prestige mid(18x20) with Pro Supex Blue gears-30 minutes
Babolat Pure Drive GT(16x19) with Mains: Topspin Cyber Red, Crosses: Synthetics-20-25 minutes
Head Youtek Speed Pro(16x19) full Blue gears-25 minutes
All on x-2 stringer(dropweight)
Been using my Eagnas crank for about 3 years now. During competitive season I restring my 2/3 rackets about twice a week. Fastest time was 22 minutes, poly mains multi crosses. I usually take my sweet time and it takes me about 45 minutes, but yesterday I was pressed for time and went balls out as fast as I could and it took me 28 minutes. Losing my touch I guess. Should note that my racket is an 18x20...would be much faster with a 16x19 or the new steam 16x15 lol.
Stringerrince Neos crank
Racket: Prince Graphite mid
String: Prince Syn Gut Duraflex 17G
Time: 8 mins 41 Secs
Goin for time, but still no mistakes.
I completely agree lol...too many rackets, and im only 23...
Speed stringing is not that important. No 1 is the quality of the job.
The speed of the pulling is a factor in stringing. I did a tests with a player (top 100, dunlop max 200g, vs gut 16g, 26 kg) and experimented with the speed of pulling the string (electronic pull). Gave the rackets to the player and he could put them consistently in order of pulling speed. All good jobs to play with but the favorite being the slowest pull.
So to me speed is only important when circumstances requires a quick string job. So a player is on court and playing with his last racket.
So you ask how long it takes. My best day 37 rackets in 12.5 hours, including, gutting out the strings, mounting the frames. Rackets in all brands and ranges, string from poly to syn. to multi (tecnifibre) to gut; 15L to 17g; 17kg to 35 kg.
Stringing Machine: Tecnifibre SP11 Major SPX
About an hour with poly or poly/gut and easy multi or synthetic 45mins. I just started using a gamma x-2 drop weight. Crosses take up 75% of my time
