1 how can you quickly tell if you have to start the mains at the bottom or top?
2 what are the points on gamma string? It says frequent string user points er something like that. If you collect enough, can you get a discount or something?

Thanks

Look at the throat and see if they start in the middle or not.

so if they do, bottom, if they are separate, top? Is that right?

Count the number of holes in the throat and divide by 2 is the result is an even number the mains start at the top. Be care on Prince O port rackets most of them start at the head.

Another way to say this is: count the number of "loops" in the throat. Mine there are 3, so I have to start the mains with 2 ends coming thru the throat and coming together out of the top.

Unless you have an old racquet, it should be fairly obvious if you're joining/bridging to holes that shouldn't be (joined).

You'll see when you get started, trust yourself.
