    When doing the final tie-off knot on the crosses of a Pure Drive, it says to tie knot at 10B. this space is really small and the knot ends up sitting atop one of the mains. Is this correct or is there an easier tie-off I am missing. All the pattern advice says 10B is correct, but man, that space is small.

    That is correct what type of knot are you using?

    EDIT: I am uploading a video now tying a Parnell knot @ 10B on a Babolat racket with RPM Blast. Here is the link if you're interested

    If you're using a double half hitch that is half you problem I would suggest a Parnell or a Pro knot.

    use the pro knot. works well in those stupid tie-off locations.
