Poor stringing habits witnessed & GS in Austin.

For any of you in Austin who get racquets strung at GS in Austin on Research beware. I was in there trying on lots of shoes as we don't have that much available at home. There was an older guy stringing up a racquet while I was at the shoes. Part of the way through he takes off for ten minutes with about 5 crosses done. then I noticed that he was just yanking the crosses through as hard as he could, no doubt causing plenty of burn on the strings. Another good reason to buy your own machine.

In defense of all stringers, to abandon a modern frame with several X's complete for a while will not damage the frame or jeopardize the string job.

And the string being pulled rapidly does not guarantee "burning".
Many string coatings cannot be burned regardless of pull speed (ie. TNT)

Certainly some customers would have complained about this stringers product if he was that careless-

As a stringer who used to work for a pro shop in Austin, you'll be hard pressed to find anyone who actually gives a toss about your racquet.
