    Tried to string my Redondo last night and failed! I have a couple of questions:
    1- What is the correct pattern? (The PK website has different info than the TW site.)
    2- I was having trouble on the last 4 crosses. With the tight pattern and such do you guys use wax? If so, what do you use.

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    The correct pattern is the one from TW. I just string the last four crosses regularly, using the tips in the my stringing the last cross thread for the last cross. It just takes a bit longer for those crosses.

    Just to follow up, I tried stringing the Redondo again last night. To be honest, I had a heck of a time. Despite numerous waxings, I had a lot of trouble pulling the crosses. The string (Klip Armor Pro 17g) seemed to rub the heck out of itself. In one spot the string delaminated. I can only think of a couple of possible causes;
    1- I am doing something wrong.
    2- Something in the grommets are too tight.
    3- Something wrong with the string. (It felt smooth when I was measuring it, but after a few pulls, it felt rough.)

    Any suggestions? Thoughts?
