Hey guys i've been watching yulitle's videos of how to string a lot lately. However i've come to see the video demonstrating the around the world stringing pattern, and have come to question is it neccessary to do it that way? pros/cons? *I use the ksix one 95 ( 16x 18 ) that has 6 grommets at the throat therefore i start from the bottom and end at the bottom. I just finish all my mains and yes my mains end at the bottom and i start from bottom. so since I do one piece stringing, i put the short through the second last cross, and then through the last cross and just tie it off, and cut the rest of the string off. Then i take the long side and put it into the third last and go all the way though the racket til last cross, and just tie it off. I don't use any starting knots :S how come that is? am i doing something wrong? is the around the world method reccomanded? And also whats the difference between all the around the world method (diredesire,UKRSA, Universal) and are they reccomended? any alternative since i don't own a starting clamp :S i also don't really understand the around the world method :S. And also whats the cons of doing it my original way?
