Leftover strings?

#1
Hey guys,

Don’t know if you guys ever had this issue, but I have three racquets and I string them all with hybrids. Since I normally buy the 40m packs, there are always leftovers. What the best way to keep opened packs of strings around? Currently there are natural guts, poly and multi sitting around in my bag...

Thanks!

Coil them up and put them in a bag or at least somewhere that won't destroy them. I have some half and full sets of poly laying around my place out in the open, but a bag can be helpful. Sometimes I save the packaging and just put the half-set back in it. Gut though should be put back in a sealed bag; that's what's nice about the current Lux Gut packaging. Any zip-lock bag should do though.

Zip Lock bag to hold any left strings from packs. Include a note with:
Owner John Smith
String name and gauge
Date Used 1/8/2019
Remaining length 33'
Notes To be returned to owner or store for next frame
If the remainder is too short for another frame, then I will generally just junk the remainder or use it in a weed eater.

coil in zip lock bag. Label with Sharpie marker what string and length (I just denote 1/2 set) and date. Then store in a fabric box.

First it is 40' not 40 m. Second get those string out of your bag, and keep them inside. Zip-Lock bags are fine but if you don't have them just use a light rubber band to hold the string in a coil. As you wrap the coil try to let it coil loosely then bag/tie it. I also use a lot of old Babolat plastic packs. Just take the label off the back and there is a large hole in the center you don't need a tie them and the string expands to the outside of the confined area.

things i pick up for stringing at wal-mart
nothing todo with actual stringing, but they come in handy for such cases as described on this thread:

-return address labels
-zip-lock bags
-zip-ties
-#64 rubber bands
