It doesn't mean "set" in the sense of "coil".
I suspect the USRSA hated Mad Raqs not so much because they were difficult to string but because they so rarely needed it.
It's probably certain ......but we just don't know for sure . A " set" of strings os pretty to me this racquet has more than a "set" so it can be at least argued that it's legal.
I guess someone would have to sub,it it to The ITF or USTA or whatever for a decision. Bit yup are right the rule wAs meant for spaghetti strings. Rules and laws must be applied uniformly .
I think Your are right about the usrsa.....these strings just never break.
