    Hi all, stringing a Wilson nCode Six-One Team 18 X 20 Racquet and basically I have got stuck.

    One piece stringing. I did the mains. Tied the left off after the mains and the rest of the string did the right side of the mains and carried on doing the crosses from the top all the way down to the bottom. Just about to tie off...and there is no place to fit the string through? What do I do?

    Thanks for any help

    Thanks for that. Yes I could do 14T but it is about 5 -6 cms away from 8. is that not too far away?

    It is far off and you will lose some tension bcs of it, but it's not a tragedy :)
    When you finish 16th cross (from the top), you skip 17th, do 18th, then skip 19th, do 20th, come back and do 19th, and then at the end 17th. This will minimize the distance of your tie off from 14T to one grommet. PS. I do this with SW triple flying clamps and I add +4kg on these last 4 crosses.
