    Hey guys, I posted a similar question under another section in the forums, but still haven't received a definitive answer.

    Does anyone know what the stringing instructions are for the new 2008 Babolat Aero Storm (the light version, not the tour)? I have not been able to find any instructions online and Babolat was not too much help either. I need to know the instructions for a one-piece stringing.

    It would be helpful if I could get the skipped holes in head and throat and the location of the tie-off for the short side and the tie-off for the end of the stringing (both head and throat if possible). Thanks for the help!

    I would guess the stringing would be the same on all of the Aero-Storms, because they have the same head size and string pattern (16x20)

    Would you by chance have a link to the stringing instructions of any of the Aero-Storms? Thanks for the help!

    Well, the racket is brand new and never strung. I know that the skips on the mains are at the 8th holes. I just need the short side tie off hole and the final tie off for a one piece job. Thanks!

    Are you dead from the neck up? I quoted the specs from USRSA this morning. Get with it. Have a nice life.

    Sorry, I hadn't check that last posting. Thank you very much for your help!!! I have been reading about your purchase of a stringing machine. Did you end up purchasing the e. stringer DG? How do you like it?
