    This Christmas I asked for a few things:

    1. Wilson blx blade 98 (gold)
    2. Wilson tour bag (gave parents the option)
    3. Wilson pro over grip big pack (I think 20 pack?)
    4. Klippermate stringer
    5. Numerous synthetics, a poly to test out, and a couple multis.
    6. Adidas barricade 7 red and black size 12 ;)
    7. Black socks

    What did you ask for? Do you know if you're absolutely gonna get something? I know my parents are gonna get me a racket and they might just get me another pro open, which would be fine with me!

    1. i'm in the market for a new racquet, so i wanna demo the new Blade 93.
    2. I need some new strings so im searching for a string that i might like, cuz i still haven't found a set-up that i REALLY,
    REALLY like.
    3. I want some Nike elite socks, cuz my parents say that 14
    dollars is too expensive for a pair of socks. Maybe a holiday will loosen 'em up.
    4. Wilson Tour Black/ Silver bag cuz it looks really nice.

    That's very generous of you! How about I wait until I get my stringer and so that way you're not wasting your string? :) thank you! Where do you live?

    It's the season of giving, right? I wouldn't be wasting string, I'd be giving it to a fellow die-hard. I'm in Southern California.

    I'm in Michigan, man! I would graciously receive your gift if I lived in my own place, but my parents would be furious if they found out that I was telling someone where I lived. I appreciate your Christmas spirit and I will let you know when I move out haha.

    I agree; but I think we should keep this out of this forum.... Mods get a little delete happy when they see that.

    Hoping for a klippermate as well, for some reason I feel like a racquet I string by myself will play better (the power of the mind, no?)

    I bought mostly everything I wanted for myself such as a new tv and a new set of racquets. Only things I hinted at wanting would be a pair of the new K-Swiss Big Shot IIs and the Head ATP Tour 6pk bag in black.

    I feel somewhat the opposite way lol but it would be a huge convenience to have my own instead of taking them ten miles away and not have them for a few days.

    Alright folks, because this has been somewhat of a time for me needing to spread some good and cheer this season, I have decided to give away some of my strings to those who are in need; if you asked Santa for some strings or have bought presents for your friends/family/pets/etc. and are broke and need a set. Obviously, I can't giveaway all of my string but I am happy to part with say 10 sets of string (poly+syn or poly or syn).


    I'll pay for the shipping (limited to US only - sorry my tennis buddies in foreign lands) and do not expect anything in return other than paying it forward eventually to somebody.

    It's a gift from me to you, no more, no less.

    Just send me a private message with a shipping address and I'll send out asap.

    P.S. the strings will be random so don't ask/worry about what you're getting. Just specify if you want poly/syn or just poly or just syn.

    Happiest of holidays to all of you on this forum.

    :) CluckCluck

    I think this is what EastAngels2014 is talking about.

    @cluckcluck , very kind of you to offer strings for free! Hope you and your family have a great holiday! I would love the offer, but i believe i found my perfect set-up for me to use!

    Babolat VS Touch 17G Main 58lb, Technifibre Pro Red Code 18G Cross 55lb . Decided to go for Natural Gut. Pretty expensive just for 1 set. I could buy a reel for that price. I suppose i will use this set up during spring and summer when i actually play more often. But i will keep the Technifibre, just going to switch VS Touch probably with Gosen OG Sheep Micro 17g or Volkl V-Wrap 17g

    Lol hey man it completes the outfit :D yeah I demoed it a long time ago alongside a pro open demo before I owned one. It was a toss up and I basically flipped a coin on that decision. So now I'm hoping to have both! I told my parents I either want another pro open or a blade, so its up to them now :)
