2014 String Pricing

We recently updated our stringing price list for the 28 different strings from 8 different manufacturers that we regularly stock, including: Babolat, Gamma, Luxilon, Prince, Tecnifibre, Volkl, Wilson, and Yonex. 12 of the strings on our list are by Pacific — the major brand we carry and use for ourselves, as our default for our clients, and for the Wake Forest men’s tennis team.

The prices on our list include installation. If you have your own string, that is usually your least expensive option — cost is $17 for installation for new customers. Existing customers, will continue to pay $15 through 2014 as a thanks for your support of our business. Wake Forest University students get a student discount, paying $15.

Consider taking advantage of our “off list” special on LUXILON SAVAGE: $25 installed while supplies last.

We also have random sets of strings that we have accumulated along the way — over 100 — so if you don’t see what you like on the list, please ask if we have what you want.

Stringing logs from the finals of the Aegon International grass event at Eastbourne, posted by stringing team manager Liam Nolan on Grand Slam Stringers message boards:

Women’s Singles:
Virginie Razzano (France) – Head Prestige – Vs one-piece RTW @ 25.5k
Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark) – Babolat Aero – Mains Babolat Red, Crosses VS @ 25k.

Men’s singles;
Frank Dancevic (Canada) – Wilson K Blade – Mains Big Banger Alu Pwr, Crosses VS @ 18k.
Dmitri Tursunov – Wilson K Blade – mains are Big Banger Ace 112 and Alu Pwr crosses @ 49lbs.

Ladies Doubles;
Samantha Stosur (Aus) – Bab Pure Storm – mains Big Banger Alu Pwr @ 62lbs, crosses VS with pre-stretch @ 53lbs.
Rennae Stubbs (Aus) – Bab Pure Storm – mains are VS with pre-stretch, crosses Bab Red @ 56lbs.

Their opponents;

Ai Sugiyama (JPN) – Prince O3, mains Recoil @ 50lbs, crosses Prince gut – pre-stretch @ 52lbs.

Not surprisingly, alot of Luxilon and Babolat VS gut hybrids. Interesting to see some of the Babolat players using the red “Revenge” string. Haven’t seen or heard much about it, but I’m sure it will be big with the Babolat name behind it.
