If you’re fond of playing tennis or other games that require a racquet, then the String Thing may be just what you need. Let’s say that you’ve just played a hard-fought tennis match that involved lots of powerful serves, volleys, cross-court lobs, ground strokes and even smashes.
As Newton’s first law of motion tells us, every object remains in its state of rest or motion unless acted upon by an external force. Therefore, at the end of such a set, chances are that the strings on your racquet are misaligned due to all the power hitting your racquet has had to do.
Such misalignment of strings is common. If you own and carry lots of spare racquets, and later have the time to get them restrung after every few games, you probably don’t have to worry.
But if you’re not in the category of tennis players that can afford half a dozen high-quality racquets, you probably use your fingers to try and bring the strings back to their original alignment. The String Thing helps you do just this easily and in fairly short time.
In simple terms, what the String Thing does is to bring your racquet’s strings back to shape. All you need to do is to rub the device on your misaligned racquet strings a couple of times and you’re all set. It’s all so easy and fast that you can do it comfortably each time you change ends or break for a drink.
The String Thing is made of polycarbonate, and is therefore tough and almost unbreakable. It is priced at £19.99.
