Video: Speed Stringing Contest

Courtesy of Tim Strawn of Grand Slam Stringers (GSS), check out this video of the 2010 Speed Stringing Contest held at the annual GSS Symposium in Orlando. Sponsored by Prince and officiated by David Bone of the USRSA, the contest featured three guys who can really “bring it” when it comes to stringing. As you’ll see in the video below, Jim Downes won with a time of 11 minutes and 16 seconds. Vasily Guryanov (2009 Speed Stringing Contest Winner) came in second with a time of 12 minutes and 31 seconds. And Jeff Wiedeman came in third with a time of 14 minutes and 56 seconds.

To put it in perspective, these guys weren’t stringing Prince Synthetic Gut or a soft multi that is super-easy to weave. No… They were stringing Prince Twisted (poly) on a Prince EX03 Rebel 95 racquet (18×20 string pattern).

I guess my best time of 21 minutes is nothing to write home about. Oh well – this gives me something to strive for in the future.

Enjoy the video.
