    I just got this racquet from a buddy to string.
    Look how the outside mains are angled from whoever strung it last.
    I havent really examined it and have several other racquets to string by tomorrow so I just want someone else to see it before I string it

    I believe this is the info, and according to this it is strung correctly? And double checked my stringers guide and its the same.
    Ive seen this before but not on a new Wilson
    K ONE 122 55 - 65 20'M - 18'C 16M X 19C 7,9,10T 6T 7T 4T - 7B

    Yeah, I thought it was strange the first time had to string a K one. Interesting string pattern.

    If you ever run into this again, on some other racquet, the crosses will be a dead giveaway. You can't just have slanted mains where slanted mains shouldn't be without ALSO having jacked up crosses. They will be unevenly spaced in an obviously wrong way.

    Thanks folks. I was so busy with my matches yesterday that I didnt even get to look at it in the pile of racquets people shoved in my bag to restring.

    As you see I went through the proper steps before committing to the job like checking the USRSA book and googeling a pattern to confirm then finding a pic which looked the same.

    Thanks to all who assisted :)
