    How long does it take an experienced stringer to string on a dropweight?

    When I had an X-2 I was around 25-27 minutes a racquet. Stringing only, not cutting out old string, measuring new, etc. Used to carry it to tournaments my kid was playing.

    What are your top 5 interests Outside of tennis?

    watch your angle. I sharpen most knives to 15 degrees. I use in order 220, 1000, 3000, 6000, and end with a leather polishing strop. Sometimes I will use a 12,000 grit at the end, but have found the leather does better.

Have a couple bottles of Daftmill but have...

    Apply tension two by two strings

    It takes time and experience to get stringing times low. I am not sure why people think that after they have strung 5 or 6 racquets they should be stringing in under 20 minutes. Knock out a couple thousand frames, and then look at your times.
