    That’s pretty cool. I’m content with my Klippermate but some day I’d like to string on a high end machine just to experience it =D

    Hey Mike. Nothing wrong with a Klippermate – it allows you to get the job done! I always say… The quality of a stringjob depends on the stringer (person) and not the stringing machine. It’s all about proper technique and attention to detail – regardless of what type of machine is used. A professional stringer can produce a high-quality stringjob on a Klippermate as well as a Wilson Baiardo. I will say… Stringing on a high-end machine is very enjoyable. I hope you get the chance to try it someday. If you’re ever in Ohio, look me up, and you can try my machine. :-)

    Take care.

    Great point David. I’ve only been stringing for a little over a year since I bought my Klippermate. There are certainly better tools for the job, but I’ve found that as long as I’m using proper technique, and I am using this techinque consistently, I can put out a great product. Most of the people are string for are of the weekend warrior crowd who notice little more than the new color of their strings, or that I’ve cleaned their raquet for them. What was really cool was when just last week I received a compliment from a new guy in town. He’s been playing for a long time and has competed in Northwest region USTA events. I was nervous as hell when I was stringing his racquet. Not only because I know this guy knows how his racquet is supposed to feel, but he also plays with one of those Prince EXO racquets with the funky ports and I didn’t have their boomerang tool to do the job. Just this morning I finally got through to Prince and this tool is on the way. I followed the advice you gave me and also watched some of the videos you sent me the links too. After he played the new strings for a week, he went so far as to tell me that was the best string job he’s ever had. I like to think he’s just being polite, but I’ll take a compliment whenever I can get one.

    Thanks to you for always being there to answer my endless questions. Keep up the great work.

    Nice work, Ken! I am quite positive that your client was not simply being polite – I’m sure he was giving a well-deserved compliment for a job well done. I know that you take stringing and customer care very seriously, so I am not surprised to learn of this praise from your client.

    Thanks for your kinds words – much appreciated.
