    Having a major problem tying off my last cross on a Babolat Aero Drive. I can't get the string back through any hole to tie knot. Hours spent using awl, wd-40, grease, needle nose pliers, etc., and nada. I am a rookie with around 100 frames under my belt. I can get an awl through but it seems to close down. Using dura-flex 16. Any ideas?

    It would be 7H if you went bottom up.

    EDIT: Look in the hold you're trying to tie off at. Cut a point on the string and try to direct the point into the widest opening at the tie off location.

    Finally got it. I think it called for a 6t tie off. Not going to happen. Did get it through 8t after over an hour trying.... Thank you guys.

    8T? That is the bottom cross hole. Very strange, no wonder you had problems.

    10T is the tie off hole for the bottom cross.

    yeah, the only way to tie off at 8T is if he were going from 17 to 19 and back to 18 as the last cross to tension

    6T is the main tie off. where did you see 6T as a cross tie off?
