"30 dollars for a basic synthetic gut string is not unheard of but I would say you didnt exactly get a good deal either. I think it also depends on the market your in. I offer my clients professional stringing services by a MRT certified stringer and…"

Have I just been ripped off?

So I just got my tennis racquet restrunged, for $30. I had told him that I wanted more control. (My tennis racquet is a Prince O3 Speedport 116 fyi.)

I was pretty bored and looked at my strings, and in small words on one of the strings it had said "Head Synthetic Gut pps 16." I searched that up on the internet, and it is only $3.99. So is the labor of restringing that much, or is it that I got ripped off? Well, another…See More

"Yeah, but those guys charge you 20 or 25 bucks for the strings. I think that could work, but I suggest you post in the local Tennisopois group discussion forum looking for a stringer. Many avid tennis players string for others as a hobby and side…"

"So in my situation, I was being charged more for the labor of getting it stringed. I have heard of places like Sports Authority that will string your racquet for free if you just buy the strings."

"There ARE less expensive stringers out there. We have a fantastic, world-class, stringer here that used to travel with the pros. He charges about 30 bucks labor. I get my racquet strung by a young tennis fanatic/ college student that charges me 10…"
