    So as an early christmas gift, a friend of mine gave me packs of strings.
    I always just bring it into the shop and let them string it so I opened up the pro hurricane tour 16 to see how it looks. To my surprise, it wasn't bundled up.
    Does anyone have any tricks as to how to roll it up as it is very tedious?
    Secondly, and more importantly, is it weird to bring in the strings that the store sells and ask them to string my racquet for me with those strings?
    I've never done it so I need some feedback.
    Thanks for the help.

    +1 on the TP roll trick.

    Be super careful not to link or damage the string

    Once its rolled up you can use a garbage bag twist tie to secure it.
    I sometimes get my reeled string ready ahead of time like this, so when I get home to string some of the setup is already done

    Also make sure the Toilet paper is unused or you will do a crappy job :oops:

    I think the polster means using a full roll of toilet paper... not just the card board center.
