    So I strung my raquet today and I forgot to skip a hole on one side while doing the mains. So the last cross is on a slight angle. Is this going to cause a major problem or will it work?

    It's not going to hurt you, but it may annoy you anyhow.

    So, do you have a cross and a main sharing a grommet hole?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the OP would be able to play a USTA match with the strings like that.

    Nope, the cross is in the main hole and the main is in the cross hole.

    I'd cut it out just because it would annoy the hell out of me. I can't stand this kind of stuff. However, I think it should be fine if you decide to play with it.

    It didn't look weird until I did the last cross and it was at an angle. lol. It will annoy me, but since I am just trying this string for the first time to see if I like it, I will probably leave it in for a few hits.

    yeah might as well. I remember when I first started stringing I did that a couple times. It sucked when it was someones elses racquet and had to do the whole thing over.
