    Has anyone created a easy way of uncoiling string sets beside just walking them out. I am thinking about making a little swivel stand (like electricans use to uncoil romex). Has anyone tried this or this this a waste of time. I suspect the string will not uncoil like I hope but I was going to try anyways unless someone has some better ideas.

    put coil over handle of mounted racket, up toward the throat where the graphite slides easy. uncoil gently, it will still want to bind abit sometimes.

    try not to drop the end, avoiding tangles as you go.

    voila.

    I hold mine in my hand, fingers through the middle, and slowly pull a free end. Let the free end fall to floor as you pull.
    Try not to make a 'birds nest'.

    I do a combination... I put the coil of poly on the handle and then after it relaxes a bit, I put it in my hand and start to either measure or feed into the frame.

    Whatever you do, don't just clip the ties and let it go... you get the bird's nest!

    It takes experience, learning and a little patience.
