    I tried to save some string but I should've been a little more conservative. I only have 2 inches and I can't seem to fit it in any of the surrounding grommets. Is tying a knot on the outside a bad idea? Should I just forget the last bottom cross? It's my own racket so I don't care if it's a bad string job.

    You can tie a figure eight starting knot on the outside.

    Like you said it is only for you so I guess its ok :oops:

    haha yea. I wish the tie hole wasn't so far away I would be able to make a knot of some kind. Oh well lesson learned.

    Don't feel bad. It happens to stringers who have strung thousands of frames.

    Forget the last cross since it's your racquet.
