I am a new stringer,3 weeks, and I have been doing poly/syngut hybrid and upping the crosses tension by 3 pounds and they have been straight when coming of the stringer but as playing the crosses slide up and down out of place and mains stay straight. can anyone tell me why this is happening and how i stop it.

Don't hit tennis balls with the strings and they won't move.

It is the way you are swinging the racquet. (at contact)

That's because polys have a tendency to snap back into place, whereas nylon synthetic gut does not. It's the nature of the beast.

If you want a non-poly that does not need to be straightened out much, try Babolat n.vy, Prince Recoil, or any high quality natural gut with slick coating.

Thanks for the replies and this has also happened with my tour bite/barb wire hybrid. Also i can see how i swing it would make them move especially on my aggressive slice backhand, dolgopolov style, but how come this never happened with my old stringers string job

Do you have any misweaves? If so this can cause your strings to move

Maybe your old stringer has a machine that gives you a tighter string bed at the same reference tension.

It could be better clamps, tension overshooting, prestretching, constant pull vs lockout, etc.

If you can go back to your old stringer, by all means, do so.

^^^ common for novice stringers.
