    You should be all good. Though I've always disliked having to tie off crosses on other crosses for this reason.

    Don't worry, I strung a lot of racquets with that case and so far none of my customers have a string broke in that area.

    Yeah, I'm not saying you had any other option. I end up doing the same thing when I string my buddy's old Wilson Pro Staff.

    I used to worry about it, too. Thought it looked sloppy, but never had a problem.
    Pro or Parnell knots are definitely better than 2 half hitch here!

    Great! Strung a blade 98 blx for the first time and stared at this issue and wilson website for an hour over the specified tie-off location. Almost went one grommet up but ended up tying where specified just as pic.

    There are a couple of other options if you are using the same string in the mains and crosses. If you are you could string the racket one piece bottom up and have only two knots. Or if you want ATW allows you to string the racket top down. I wouldn't normally suggest you string a racket ATW but your racket is 18 mains and skips 8&10 H&T. This means it can be string with no short section of the frame supporting any short section of string.

    Is that a misweave I see there? Maybe it's just the camera angle. It's not a big deal at that location.
