    Were the misweaves done for a reason? I also prefer not to use starting knots.

    ITF Rules - The hitting surface, defined as the main area of the stringing pattern bordered by the points of entry of the strings into the frame or points of contact of the strings with the frame, whichever is the smaller, shall be flat and consist of a pattern of crossed strings connected to a frame and alternately interlaced or bonded where they cross. The stringing pattern must be generally uniform and, in particular, not less dense in the centre than in any other area.

    Ok, seems like a waste of time and string to intentionally install a misweaved pattern that cannot be used for legal play. Alternatively, if it was not intentional, I am sorry.

    On the other hand, it is a nice color combination--alas, not a factor in my choosing a string. Thanks for sharing.

    Don't the strings get really loose after a while? :) ;) :)

    If the mal-weaving in the middle was a 'mistake', methinks somebody needs to pay attention. It should be easy to 'feel' that in the middle of the stringbed(while stringing, that is) .

    If you did that string job yourself, then it's a mistake. If you paid somebody to string it for you then i'd be looking for his/her head on a plate!

    Cheers

    What do you hope the area of non-weaving will do for you?

    If the weave is a try for insane spin good luck controlling your shots.

    Maybe (s)he did not know there was a miss-weave and wanted to know what everyone thought of the color combination.

    Another question:
    Textured strings are invented for more spin and grip on the ball. Dont you decrease that when you twist the string?

    There is probably no reason why Stevie Wonder couldn't string a racquet. There was a blind guy at a local transmission shop that rebuilt transmissions for years.

    I knew a blind man that caned chairs. For those who don't know, there was a popular type of chair that had a woven seat made of cane strips. These had to be woven, and the weaving patterns varied and where complicated. He could do it all day....blind.

    It's gotta be intentional. Seems rather silly, though.

    Sorry guys, I have no clue what's meant to be wrong with that string job.

    Disclosure: complete stringing noob.

    Look closely. The 6th and 7th crosses from the top are not interwoven with the six center mains.

    Possibly, if you twist the string enough to create a rougher texture yes but then you will also weaken the string.
