    Jesus, now I know why all my stringers didn't like stringing my racket up....It was a cool experience and I didn't have any major screw ups. The only part that was really hard were the last part of the crosses...what a pain in the butt. I'm actually quite proud of myself for not totally messing it up and hopefully I'll get better at it and not take an hour and a half to do it.

    Congrats...

    Side note, when first looking at the title from the mainpage, it reads as "I did my first racket..."

    :wink::wink:

    Stringing can be very fun and relaxing. I played like crap tonight, my tennis elbow flared up so badly that I wont be able to play for weeks, but coming home and stringing a couple frames dissipated my anger and frustration.

    I wish all of you poly lovers would learn to string your own. My life would get so much easier::grin:

    Now down to 4 feet behind the baseline.

    My stringer doesn't get mad over poly, but soft multis like X1...
