I usually can do one in just under an hour. The cross weaves are definately what slows me down. I also take my time with the dropweight,,,I use alot of caution when setting the tension bar as the weight and bar has always scared me somewhat.
Our town has a population of around 2000 and the nearest pro shop or stringer is 100 miles away. I would love to find one of the Prince Neos or Gamma cranks that someone purchased and no longer uses or plays tennis.....
