how much string will it take
 
to string a 95 sq inch wilson profile? just bot a reel of 660ft. want to cut off the right amount to give to the pro shop. previously, i would just give them a store bot 40 ft package. don't know how much was left over...

Generally 38 feet is pretty much good enough for all frame sizes.

Depends ever so slightly on the model and string type. For example, the 3.6 takes more string than the 2.7 and a 'no-stretch' poly will require more string than a stretchy synthetic. Need more info if you are trying to minimize waste.

interesting thanks. not the 2.7 or 3.6. no stiff index number because they are 1/4 inch longer than the 2.7. not many know that. strings are the big hitter black 7 16 gauge. tension 32 lbs. at this point answer is more than 38ft less than 40...

Give them the full 40'.
You won't save anything by shorting the stringer.
So you have an extra 14' at the end of the reel.
Wattayagonnado with it?

actually, if he gives the stringer 38 feet every time hell get 17 stringjobs out of his reel instead of 16. 38 is the max your racquet can take, less depending on your model. do you have a 16x18 pattern or 18x20 OP

16 x 18
(fortun8son. guessing you're playing with house money...)

If there is no stiffness index, it is probably the original which was renamed the 2.7. An old Stringer's Digest calls for 36' (9'8" short side) or 16'8" mains and 14'8" crosses. These numbers are for the Mid Plus.

16x18 in a 95" head can usually be done in 34 feet (18' for mains and 16' for crosses). 36' should be plenty. I strung my wilson blx 6.1 95 16x18 like this with no issues.

thanks all for the responses. if it's 36 feet, 18 stringings woohoo...
