    I'm doing a project with another member in my program to have some video's on youtube so that the freshman are better prepared and have something to reference when stringing at the racquet center or on internship.

    Any questions anyone has had that they want to see demonstrated that are not in either Yulitle or Irvin's Videos please post them here. We'll be covering the basics; starting mains, starting crosses crosses, knots, and weaving 1 ahead. So try to make it slightly more specific if you have any questions.

    Hope we can help a few people!

    Does it have to be tennis?

    I was thinking I'd like to see a video of someone pre-weaving an entire badminton racquet or I'd take a pre-weaved mains tennis racquet.

    How about a sure fire technique to pull the bands off of a new set of string and not getting it tangled?

    I'm sure I can think of others too.

    How to recover when you're left with too little string on the last pull (using a starting clamp as a bridge).

    ChadW's request is good.

    I would also like to suggest a video for the beginner stringer (those with drop weight machine with floating clamps and no starting clamp) how to start the mains with floating clamps.

    It took me a while when I first started stringing to figure out how to do it with my DW but once I got my technique down it's been easy. A video surely would have helped me out.

    I can cover everything listed EXCEPT for the Badminton request. I've actually never strung one before :( or else I'd gladly make it. Hope to have some of these up this coming week.

    I can do the one with floating clamps I think but I'd say Irvin definitely already has a great video posted for that one along with Yu.
