I have some questions regarding 2-piece stringing
for the crosses, how do you guys suggest i start? i've read that a starting knot is bad for the racquet..

clamping the first cross and going on to tension the second one would cause a lot of tension to be lost in the first cross when the knot is tied wouldn't it?


another question i have is if i mess up the crosses when the racquet is done, is it possible to snip the crosses and re-weave them without redoing the mains?


thanks in advance for your responses

weave 2 crosses, tie your starting knot, then pull the first cross to tighten up the starting knot. does this make sense?

simpler: tighten your starting knot through your first cross.

About redoing the crosses, no problem if the racquet is still mounted in the stringing machine.
