Overdrive, forgetting about the travel expenses you'd have, would you travel the world and stay in a hotel room stringing racquets almost everyday, away from your family and friends, away from your home, for only 3333$? I don't know where are you from, but i know for instance in europe that's not a lot of money. I know guys that earn that with a racquet/stringing shop at their city, and it's not a big city...
I'm not surprised that's not alot of money according to you as the Euro (EU) is imploding at the moment.


Well my city has been picked as #10 least expensive city in the USA.
Here's a link for proof: http://www.cnbc.com/id/45989628/page/2

My area is #50 on Forbes as well: http://www.forbes.com/2009/07/13/che...ces-chart.html

So how much does the average guy earn from a racquet/stringing store?
