    am i the only person that doesn't like to string these frames? i did one today
    and it nearly kicked my butt. i had to pre-weave the mains on the short side
    because with the string tensioned you couldn't get the tie-off to push thru.
    i would have thought that these would have been easier to string than a
    regular frame. oh well, maybe the next one will be a little easier.

    I've strung several O3's, but the last Silver I strung was a bear to get the LAST cross tied off. I can't remember if I finally gave up on the hole marked "tie off" or not. I could push a piece of polyester string through the hole, but getting a multi through it, even waxed, took a lot of "awl work". What a pain. Come on Prince, be a little more diligent on your QC.
