    Designed by an Australian Barry Todd (FIN also) the Miracle offers players the ability to play on even if a string breaks. The alternate string system therefore means that a string under tension still surrounds the broken one unlike normal stringing.

    I will post a few pics of this quite ingenious racquet complete with striking graphics.

    The pattern if you want to give it a crack. Apparently does take sometime to master, so like many things which aren't normal it wasn't well received.

    I am not a stringers little finger but would you need massive clamps to grab a three string wide pattern like this??? Others for comment....

    Well if you post that last photo with a bit of an explanation in the stringing section here, I'm sure you'll get a few comments!

    Could also use an awl for each loop(s) that need to be lifted for next strings loop thru. Would of course really slow down the stringing process and require a longer length to string the racket. Usually the break is near center mains so would be playing with a string bed with tension off one main but others pretty much held in place. Good idea if you can afford backup racket(s).
