I doubt you are the boss of this forum as a player, but it is a better possibility compared to you being the boss of stringing... I know you're confident in your skills, but there are stringers in this forum who have strung at all of the major tournaments, for the best players in the history of the game. Not to mention stringers who literally have techniques and knots named for them! As a stringer at least you are not fit to be wiped off the bottom of the shoes of these people! Please stop now before you embarrass yourself further.
As someone who strings at home almost every day I am the boss of home stringing.
Never once said my stringing is for making money. But to string at home( 1or 2 per day) , cheap , fast and always have same result as well.
I have a 100 dolar 15 year old drop weight, and 7,8 different reels, and all my jobs are standard and when I do 2 in a row they always sound the same.
And i even enjoy stringing.
That being said i doubt anyone here has my credentials at stringing at home.
If that is not the case tell me in which way the burns ( dont even happen on some strings) change the game.
Also if I have time i will gladly go to stringer and they do very good job once i figure out their mashine with one or 2 frames.
That is easy with top mashines.
But that doesnt change the fact that my playing lvl is way above any stringer and I can tell how i like the string job in matter of 0.5 kg .
So i dont really see a way that some stringer will teach me how to string at home better or faster for that matter.
That is why im here.

Good points here... I too am the boss of stringing on these boards! The boss for the club I work at! Congratulations on being the valedictorian for your class of one.

At least the racquets sound the same! :-D:-D:-D

The gift that just keeps on giving.

So you’re here because nobody can teach you to string faster or better? Makes a lot of sense.
No, lvl i reached is almost impossible to reach. You need to be born certain way and then work for it. Still im holding important info back for now.
This is just for fun ...even tho im right.

Remember this.
You cant even ignore minor burns that serve no purpose . No , you cant even think about doing it let alone do it.

"Never met a stringer who fon a single match." Interesting. I assume you meant to say 'won'. That aside, you probably haven't met a lot of strings anyway, so it would make sense you haven't met a stringer that hasn't won a single (sic) match.
You're obviously new to the world of (professional) tennis, as many many lower level players do string themselves and most are actually quite capable. And since lower level players ocassionaly rise to the higher levels, I can tell you that there are Grand Slam winners that can string a racket to prof specs quite easilly.
"There wasnt any burns or dents , almost 0." That's ok, everybody has to start somewhere. You're also mentioning how fast you can string. Interesting indeed. Since gear is a big part of professional tennis (refreshing your mind for a moment that many players string themselves), you one day will find out that speed is not the most important part. Consistency however is. So it's fairly easy to digest from your post that you are a novice stringer, with little to no material knowledge, which in turn tells me you're talking a big game you ain't got. Any player with ATP points will double bagle you for lunch. Most club players probably too. I'm willing to bet that even those pesty lazy coaches can trash you into oblivion, because anyone who constantly needs to advertise to the world how good they are, you guessed it, they usually suck. Bad. (Tennisballs through a garden hose bad).

What you do have however, is an ego, large as it is fragile (much like the Djokovics' of this world) and a semi-ok troll game. Entertaining for a few minutes but badly articulated and thus painful to read, not particulary well thought out or insightful, riddled with inconsitencies and extremely predictable. A 6 minus for now, but unless you step up your game significantly, really not worthy of our time, unless it's a dull moment such as now.
Good luck on your next effort.
I think it's amazing that you've been on TTW since 2010 and you used some of the 73 times you've posted in 11 years on this thread. That's awesome (y)

That is why im here.
You are a poor student as all you do is argue and refute. It would serve you to learn to listen.

Anecdotal evidence and numbers pulled out of thin air! Very convincing!
Surely you know that 97.895% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Why anecdotal? Took me 30 min to learn how to string .
Your 30 minute "investment' shows.

Car and formula 1 is not the same thing lol.
Agreed.
Tennis is tennis always the same for anyone.
I don't care how good you think you are, your tennis has nothing in common with an ATP top 100. (Neither does anyone on the boards.)

You're a dim lightbulb.
Im affraid you dont know much about tennis if you wanna compare people for your nation.
Im from ex yugoslavia which beats your country 10 times in a row in davis cup and holds slam records with nole :).
@struggle is right I'm afraid you have proved you're a dim bulb. You say ex-Yugoslavia. Are you Croat or Serb? I hear it make a difference to both sides of the equation. So much so that when Serbia played Croatia, the two sides were instructed to not shake hands. Maybe you grew up on the border?

Djokovic is Serb, so let's assume you're Serb. Serbia has a 2-1 record against the USA, which is a far cry from 10-0.

If you're a Croat, then I don't know how you lay claim to Djokovic and I'll admit Croatia is up 5-0 against the US. So which is it or are you playing both sides? And, the USA has suffered a drought in recent tennis history, no question.

Now if you're hardcore Yugoslavian, well.....they never made it to the finals. But they did build a nifty car there for a while (not). :) Search as I might, I could not find any head to head USA v Yugoslavia. I guess it either never happened or wasn't important enough to record.

And since you're a history buff, let's take a look at the facts:

USA has been in the most Davis Cup Finals - 61. We've won 32 and lost 29.
Next are:
Australia
Great Britan
France
and
Sweden in that order.

In 16th place is Croatia with two appearances, they are 1 - 1.
In 17th place is Serbia with one appearance which they won.
Russia has been in 5 and won 2 which bests the total output of Croatia and Serbia.

Don't get me wrong, Serbia has produced some extraordinary tennis players. I just don't think you are one of them or we'd have heard of you. And, the really really good players don't string their own rackets at home on a 100-year old dropweight.

Sweden and Spain have produced more players though and are roughly the same size as Serbia.

History is a fickle b!tch.

What if u both and neither.
What if u had both passports .
What if u get paycheck in croatia but live in serbia and travel to work.
What if u are from mix marriage and parents from different country that got married in yugoslavia.
What if u have land in both countries.
What if I played for both national teams.
What if u serbian but catolic.
What if u lived in croatia while they won 5 times in a row but now u live in serbia while djoko is the boss.
But keep tryin to pwn the balkan boy lol.
There is large number of people with many if not all those traits all over ex yugoslavia.

And finally it was 7- 1 in davis cup.
Somehow i put 3 slams that novak won in there .
Thats how much more slams he has then americas best player haha.
My bad.

Not really, but I will take that as a minor and not important mistake.
You made one huge mistake as well.
Also we cant have breaking all the records in tennis can we.
When djoko gets 1 more slam then fedal it will be enough tho to pwn tennis forever.

Like I said, born on the border. :) And that's a lot of what if's... It reminds me of your claims in tennis and stringing....all horn and no driveshaft as it were.

Let's say you did live in Croatia and they won 5 times in a row (which they did), but now live in Serbia. The USA has played Serbia 3 times losing 2. Now I don't know if they teach you metric math in Croatia/Serbia/Yugoslavia, but 5 + 2 <> 10. And it's probably not even 7 in a row.

Sounds to me like you pick whichever side is winning....a subway fan.

7-1 my arse.

Hey, why don't you add France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Spain in there to up the record?

And there it is. Anything to satiate a broken ego. Baseless grandiose claims of 'greatness' on his own endevours, or hanging on to whichever side is winning, only to have something to feel good about.
Advertising the 'looks' of succes out loud, rather than actually working on growing and becoming more succesful. Perhaps another victim of the war, by proxy through his parents or something like that.

Dispite all he wrote here, I find him to be pitiable.

But then I also know that there are plenty of folks on this board who would actually help and advice him, if he actually choose to grow. Perhaps one day..

Thats not a lot of ifs, its a standard for hundreds of thousands of people.
I mean i know you cant understand that but ask any ex yugoslav member here and he will say exact same thing as me.
Some people have 2 countries both in serbia and croatia.
Ask any serbian or croatian....
Btw
Arent you the one that said spain is similar size as serbia. When its like 5x bigger .
That is something i never took against you .
I dont see why are you so upset if its 7 1 or 10 1 score.

For atp points at least.
But they are experts for strings and such hehe.
Even tho the lvl of their tennis is low to none.
Only way to really know how string or racquet plays is to be at least on pros lvl of speed and spin and somewhat similar control.
The slower you play the less difference makes which string you use.
Its just a preference at that point.
