    bought one, first time stringing, pretty tough, I've never strung anything like it before but the videos irwin posted prepared me well for the pitfalls. I ended up using the brake method which worked well. I looked at Irwin's 50-50 video but it looked too complex. I also used the bead method, worked well until I got to the bottom of the stringbed.

    thanks to irwin for the great, informative videos.

    You are lucky that your brake works well enough. I had to use the classic "hip" method to prevent the racket from turning during each cross tension during my Prince phase.

    My biggest beef with that stick was stringing it and getting the tension nailed. UGGHH.

    Trust me if your name was Irvin you would. I have seen Ervin, Irvine, Irwin, Erwin, Erwing, Erving, Irving, and many other ones that aren't even close. If my name were something like Bee-ak-ah-bah-TOO-kah, SIR-bee-ack, or Boom-shay Boom-shay I could understand but Irvin? LOL

    I've had quite a few funny variations on my last name over the years.

    Having used both "wall-stop" and "hip" methods to string EXOs before, I sympathize with you.

    I couldn't use the hip check method because I have a table top. But once I got the boomerang from Prince (granted it was the wrong one and I had to sand it down), stringing was fine on the exo tour.
