bought one, first time stringing, pretty tough, I've never strung anything like it before but the videos irwin posted prepared me well for the pitfalls. I ended up using the brake method which worked well. I looked at Irwin's 50-50 video but it looked too complex. I also used the bead method, worked well until I got to the bottom of the stringbed.

thanks to irwin for the great, informative videos.

You are lucky that your brake works well enough. I had to use the classic "hip" method to prevent the racket from turning during each cross tension during my Prince phase.

He just put a w where the v should have been. Not sure why E and G were even mentioned???

My biggest beef with that stick was stringing it and getting the tension nailed. UGGHH.

Trust me if your name was Irvin you would. I have seen Ervin, Irvine, Irwin, Erwin, Erwing, Erving, Irving, and many other ones that aren't even close. If my name were something like Bee-ak-ah-bah-TOO-kah, SIR-bee-ack, or Boom-shay Boom-shay I could understand but Irvin? LOL

I've had quite a few funny variations on my last name over the years.

Having used both "wall-stop" and "hip" methods to string EXOs before, I sympathize with you.

I couldn't use the hip check method because I have a table top. But once I got the boomerang from Prince (granted it was the wrong one and I had to sand it down), stringing was fine on the exo tour.
