  • Can I purchase a StringWeaver from outside the United States?

Yes, we can ship to Canada, Europe, and some Asian countries. However, you must pay the shipping cost and you are also responsible for payment of any customs fees, import duties, or value added taxes imposed by your government upon delivery of the order. Shipping costs are:
Canada: 1 StringWeaver $10,
2 or more StringWeavers $16

Europe & Asia: 1 StringWeaver $14,
2 or more StringWeavers $24

Note: Because badminton StringWeavers weigh less than those for tennis, two badminton StringWeavers can ship to Canada, Europe, and Asia for the same shipping cost as one.

  • Will the StringWeaver stretch or damage my strings?

No, the StringWeaver is designed to gently separate the mains without stretching them.  The design allows you to pull strings faster without notching or burning.  

  • Will the StringWeaver change the tension or stiffness of my strings?

Tests performed by independent Master Racquet Technicians using sophisticated tension and string bed stiffness measurement equipment show no difference between identical racquets strung with and without the use of the StringWeaver.

  • What kind of strings can I use with StringWeaver?

The StringWeaver works with any type of string, but is especially useful for poly- and textured strings and natural gut.

  • I’m already a fast stringer. Won’t this slow me down?

No.  The StringWeaver requires no assembly and it attaches to and detaches from the mains in a few seconds.  You only need shift the lever after each cross to reverse the gap for the next cross.  The StringWeaver can remain on the string bed for the entire job.  You will be able to pull the crosses faster and with less effort without damaging the strings.  A major benefit is how much better your fingers will feel after you’ve strung several rackets in succession.

  • Most tennis rackets have 16 or 18 main strings. Why doesn’t the StringWeaver latch onto all of the mains?

If the StringWeaver were wide enough to latch all the mains, it would not be able to get as close to the tip and throat of the racket because nearly all racket heads have an oblong shape.  To be most effective, the StringWeaver should be able to remain on the mains until all the crosses have been strung.  In addition, even though the outermost mains are not latched, there will still be a gap formed between the outer main and the first latched main when the lever is moved to the gap position.

  • I like to string my crosses using the “one ahead” method. Can I still do that using the StringWeaver?

Yes.  Stringing one or more crosses ahead before pulling tension is perfectly OK.  The stringer in our video uses the one ahead method, but it’s strictly a matter of personal preference.  Just remember to shift the lever after weaving each cross.
