damn 10 per frame is not much when you figure in all the costs. kudos to you sir
I mean, for a futures event, that's kinda the standard. The players pay $17, but $7 goes to the event (since they don't make any money to speak of, lol).
yeah sounds like the usual to me, unless you owned the stringing machine in which case i think it should be more.
You're getting shafted, man
Here in the UK we normally charge £13(~$20) for Futures & Challengers. We have to cover all our expenses, but we take all the money, the tournament doesn't take any cut. Plus we usually get £7(~$10) per day in food vouchers to use and the on-site cafes.
Most of the tournaments probably aren't as big as the ones in the USA (32 main draw, 32 qualies + dubs) and most are covered by 1 stringer. Bigger challengers normally use 2 stringers at some point, even if only for a few days. Bigger events Queens, Eastbourne etc will have a team of about 5 stringers with front desk staff too.
yea i mean i know thats the standard and i am saying thats not much. its like the guys out of the top 50 barely making it while the top 20 are raking in the prize money.
so i did 20 rackets in 8hrs today.
takes me about 2.7 x 10^(9) micro-seconds to string up a racket
so like 27min?
Kind of close, i guess....
Sounds like my futures tourney ;-)
lol and with the same pay
Money is money for me at this point, especially when it's so easily made, haha.
haha i hear you.
lol i hate math.
I range about 24 to 28 minutes depending on the string
thats pretty good!
