    When you install the mains, they are the strings that go up and down the racquet, you have to skip the holes that crosses will go into. They are the "skips".
    "T" means throat and "H" means head. You simply count holes over from the middle, each way.
    If the instructions say "T 7,9", you count over from the middle.

    Hey Yulittle,

    I was thinking it would be great to have a video on using a diablo. I only found one on youtube. Just a thought I've been meaning to convey.
