Saving money on tennis strings - 7 Trial Packs to check out now

Most likely you have purchased something in bulk sometime in your life.  We live in a Costco and Sam's Club society and can't get away from the idea of buying in large quantitties.  Although the idea of stepping foot inside of a large box retailer doesn't do much for me, taking advantage of online deals does.  Take advantage of this form of reasoning and save yourself some money on tennis strings today.

The two advantages are rolled out here.  Buying in larger quantities saves you money especially buying trial packs. Luxilon, Wilson and  Genesis are among the tennis companies that offer trial packs.  Not only do you get an assortment of several strings you also save on the per set price.

The following includes some deals worth checking out.
