I have now strung about 5 racquets with my new stringer (crank style). Issue 1The first racquet I strung, I set the tension at 54 lbs. It felt like 154 lbs when I tried to hit with it. Seemed like a block of wood would have been better. The strings did not move at all after a couple hitting sessions. I suspected that I had done a really bad string job and wanted to cut the strings out before I damaged my racquet. When I cut the strings out, it was amazing. I have no idea what the actual tension in the strings was, but it had to have been dangerously high. After a restringing of that same racquet at the same 54 lbs. it felt more like 54 lbs. So, I do think I am getting better and avoided disaster with that first racquet. Second issue is crosses that are moving like crazy rather than the mains. What am I doing wrong that allows the crosses to move up and down like that. I am still learning with each new string job, but I am loving my new purchase. It is kind of addictive. Third Issue When I get close to the throat area of my string job (Head Pro 280) I really run out of room to weave the string. I have relatively small hands but the clamps and lack of room create some problems. Is this just a common issue, or am I making things hard on myself with a bad method?
