I really enjoy doing a good job also, nothing like a smooth string job where everything goes well and you're left with just the minimum amount of string necessary to reach the tension head.

Agreed, there are so many options that it's hard to just focus on the game. There's all these what if's that creep in when you're not having you best day on the court: am I using the right string, is the the best tension for me, should I hybrid, go full poly, is this poly dead etc.......

I don't break poly, so I miss the days of just snapping a string. There was no mystery or intrigue about the playability of the string, it was either good, or it was broken.
