Just bought a SP E.Stringer DG.

Been at it for 45 minutes and I keep releasing the tension. Anyone have a video or PDF on when and where I should clamp. I think that is where I'm screwing up. I used the info on the SP page but it's not helping.

My understanding (which is obviously wrong LOL)-

1] Start from the bottom of the racquet.
2] Clamp one string & tension the string on the other side.
3] When I unclamp he winder just blows what I just strung and pulls everything through.

I've done this about 5 times now. ARRRRGGGHHHHHH

The Silent partner manual and video shows that you loop the string in the 2 center main grommets, feed them through the 2 grommets in the head, and then clamp those 2 mains (TO EACH OTHER) about 3 inches from the throat and then thread say the right main from the head back through the throat. Tension this string and then clamp it to the center right main between the frame and the other clamp attached to the 2 center mains. The clamp on the 2 center mains 3 inches from the throat is what prevents the string from pulling through on the first string you tension.

Far easier to watch the video than to explain it here!!

Thanks to Tennis Pro and Nalbandian Fan I got the mains figured out. All I need to do is tie off. Hopefully the crosses go half as smooth as the mains. That means I'm only looking at 2.5 hours LOL:rolleyes:
