View Full Version : Stringing a Babolat Puredrive(Roddick model)

I was just recently given a PD GT to string and am wondering where to tie off the cross string. I am stringing a hybrid and starting from the top to the throat.

Adding to this, but do I tie off on a cross or try to squeeze it into a main grommet?

You tie the cross to any hole nearby that already has a string and is large enough for a second string to go through.

My AeroPro Drive makes you tie off on a cross string, sorta. Probably a good chance the PDGT is the same. On that racket there was no other option, so I just sucked it up and dealt with it. It's not the worst thing. A main string is preferred though if you can fit it anywhere nearby...

PURE DRIVE RODDICK GT; 16MX19C; skip 8T-8B; tie off main 6B; first cross 8T; tie off cross 7T - 10B (T Top B Bottom Source Klippermate) 10B is a cross so that is good if your mains are gut.

Thanks guys, I tied it off on a bottom cross and it fit, but tying a finishing knot was a pain.

Parnell or double half hitch. In stringing section, search poster Irvin for how to tie.
