Is It Worth It?
Racquet Quest sells only a few high performance racquet brands so it is not unusual for us to receive racquets purchased from on-line sources. These can be dropped shipped to us or brought in by the client.
That’s great. But here is the problem!
If you have a racquet technician in your neighborhood do not have the racquets strung by the online source! Take the racquet(s) to someone you trust, and, can be there if there is ever an issue, and this is an issue! The knot actually came untied! This is rare but is particularly likely when using a really “cheap” string and not knowing how to tie a proper knot!
Two things are happening here. The knot on the top is a “tie off” knot. While the tail may become loose it is not likely the knot will totally untie itself. The knot on the bottom is a “starting knot” and was subjected to the tension of the first cross string and, as you see, became a “not knot”.
This was very likely a “free” or “discounted” stringing so why not take advantage of the offer!
In this case, it is impossible to play with the racquet so what was saved by the cheap stringing?
This happens because the source knows that the racquet will probably not be returned for correcting the error(s) so who cares!
I care and you should care!
That is my “rant” for the day!
