The discussion is indeed about stringing skills, product knowledge, and the need for certification.
As Wikky stated, just having the certificate does not make one a master technician.
IMO the key is caring about your clients' needs and a commitment to excellence.

I think that my analogies were appropriate.
Even if I played regularly, there is no way that I could test all frame/string combinations or attempt to imitate my clients' playing styles.
That's why I haunt these boards, to gather data that will be useful in my recommendations.
Occasionally, I fail and have to restring for free.
Some knowledge only comes from experience.

If I were like some of the posters here (y'all know who they are), I'd only recommend the same racquet, string, and tension for everyone.
How silly would that be?
