Move it back with your finger, or use poly.

some strings, like HEAD Fibergel, NEED string savers, because they move way too much.

Smirker has the best solution ...... I always string this way.

thanks man, sure seems to work for me. Don't see the need with poly but multis or solid core synthetics it definitely helps reduce string movement.

if your tension is over 60+ string will always move.

Even Nat gut moves + hybrid.

After few sets tho my string kinda get stuck after imbedding to other string.

not sure if thats good or what. but it takes out my string movement.
I hit Flat forehand a lot and sometimes topspin if someone gave me a short ball.

Really? I thiought the higher the tension the less your stings move. :confused:

that string is crap. a lot of strings have good resistence to string movement, such as some synthetic guts like Gamma syn. gut wearguard. If you don't like strings that move a lot, such as ones with heavy, waxy coatings, do not use them anymore, as they will always move. another option, as said, is string saver locks, which resist string movement.

thats what I thought too, did a post about it a while back. depends on what string you use also.
