Now put in in comparison. Lets assume the average person here earns around $40,000.
The equivalent impact to that persons earnings each year is $120.
Don't know about you guys, but I would pay $120 ANYDAY to have someone string and customise all my racquets.
Nice ideia, but you finished with a "wrong" conclusion. Pro's aren't wasting money, we are, because i bet most of the tennistalk members, who don't own a stringing machine, spend more than 120$ a year with stringjobs fees and racquet services (not including the string here).
