I'm wanting to do a 2 piece job on a Babolat Pure Drive 110 (16X20). The Babolat description is VERY STRANGE and I can't understand it. Can anyone interpret where the crosses tie off?? Or to describe it like Wilson does??

it take a bit of logic , youve done the mains you have 2 knots. then insert the string into a start/ tie offhole and usually when you end the nearest tie off is within 2 holes

sorry didnt ssee the link , basically the circle are where you can tie off so just tie off to the nearest whole .

X tieoff @ 11H and 6T according ot the diagram. A starting clamp is needed to start the crosses.

I guess that will work if I start at the Throat. It wouldn't work by starting at the Head (which I wanted to do), because 11H is a cross, and you can't tie off to anything. Or were you meaning that you start w a starting clamp, and then later tie off at 11H? (Unfortunately, I don't have a starting clamp right now.)

It covers how to start the crosses at the head on a 2-piece stringing.

Yes... you can't do it w/o a starting clamp.

I've pulled one of the table clamps out and used that before. It's not pretty but it works fine. You won't necessarily be able to do that on every machine though.

How about a vice grip? (At least until I get a true starting clamp) :)

That would probably work fine, just be sure to put something over the teeth of the vice so that the strings don't get nicked or something.

or learn how to do the Around The World pattern so you can string it one piece.

skip the last main and start your crosses at the top as normal. finish the crosses and your string should be just below the main you skipped. thread the string up the last main and tie it off at the top of the frame.

i've simplified it but do a search and you should be able to find a good pic easy. saves you cutting string, etc to do a 2 piece string job
