    I just bought a Dunlop 300G MP and also found a problem when stringing it in 2 pieces.

    The stringing instruction given buy Dunlop is fine but the only problem was unable to tie off X at 7T. Hole 7T is so small and it is impossible to get the X string through. (I was using a 18 gauge string).

    It works if I tie off X at 4T. But it is not so nice since X string spans from 8T to 4T to tie off.

    Is this a design defect of 300G?

    I do the same thing. I dont' know why dunlop would release that stringing pattern. Does everyone tie off at 4t? i think its a long stretch as well.
