    The klippermate site list the cross tie off at 13B. 13 grommets from the bottom seems very far up the side of the frame. Am I counting it right? Does 13 on Klippermate mean counting 13 from the middle?

    This is information from USRSA They typically list just about every racquet in their digest, and very accurate.
    Evidently this racquet is to be strung as 1 piece.
    Pattern listed below.
    Note: H=head of racquet T=Throat of racquet

    Hope this helps you.


    Wilson Pro Staff 4.5 95

    Tension: 48-58
    Pattern: 18×20
    Start M's: H
    M Skips:8T,10T & 8H,10H
    Len. 1pc 36'
    Short Side 9'6"
    Tie Off M's 9T
    Start 1pc X 8T
    Last 1pc X 8H
    Tie 1pc X 5H
    Notes: Although Wilson's info shows tying M's at 9T, we found this difficult. If you have a problem try 6T instead.

    Thanks Jim.

    Does anybody have info on the 2 piece? Is the 13 on klippermate accurate?

    Jim gave you everything you need. Bottom tie offs are 9t and 6t, and the top tie off is 5h.

    SP pattern info:

    Pro Staff 4.5 95,48-58,18x20,start at H,skip 8T,10T,8H,10H,tie off main 9T,1 piece 36',SS 9'6",1st x 8T,last x 8H,tie off 1st x 5H,2 piece 19'x17',1st x 8H,last x 8T, tie off cross 5H,12T

    Here, the site says you can use 12T rather than 13T. Also says to use 9T for main tie offs.
