Also Certified Stringer sounds much better than MRT to regular tennis player. I will go for that first and if I need MRT, I can do the upgrade for $80 and another written test.(I hate to memorize what triple-threat means, or liquidmatel.)
It's all marketing, again back to business. CS or MRT is just a piece of paper, that some people think they need. They read the same material you can find in any manufacturers website. Does anyone going into a store looking for the certificate hanging on the wall? Even if they did were they satisfied with the string job they got? My answer is, NOT ALWAYS.
I get a lot of clients who are dis-satisfied with thier previous stringer, some of which I know are MRTs. If you want to be a Tour Stringer, sure a MRT cert will get you through the door, but you will still need to show your experience.
