well yeah. The stringing labor fee I pay is 20 pounds. If you think stringing is a ****ty job then dont string. Its not that hardThis is why I only string for a few people. These responses to this scenario or others show a lack of respect for stringers and stringing. Stringing just doesn't pay enough to deal with this headache. Lets say your labor fee is $20 (very high end) and you can string a racquet every 15 minutes (very fast). That's a maximum of $80/hour. A more likely scenario is $15 labor and 2 racquets per hour for $30/hour. It's not worth the sore fingers, crazy gripes, etc. I make more at my day job and I don't have to stop what I'm doing to answer questions about some hybrid or tension theory from a 3.0 player who couldn't tell the difference between nylon at 60lbs and natural gut at 40lbs.
Side note: I'm amazed at the guys who will drive 30 minutes to have me put on an overgrip for them. They're the same ones who show me their Walmart racquet with the stencil completely intact and ask me if the strings need replaced. NO THEY DON'T need replaced. Go play!
