    Hi all, I recently strung up Luxilon 4G in my Head IG Extreme MP and I think this was my worst string job ever. I'm using a Gamma Progression 200 and it took me aproximately 30 minutes for stringing. The main problem was due to coil memory and trying to prevent the strings from kinks. Does anyone have any tips to prevent kinks and to make my next restring of 4G much smoother?

    Between the baseline and netcord.
    Try slowing down when stringing. 30 minutes is pretty quick for non-constant pull dropweight.
    If you slow down, you'll be able to identify any kinks coming. If you relax and be smooth, all will be well.

    Working with shorter sections of string helps prevent twisting use two piece and not one piece. Start your crosses pre-weaving the top three up the racket then tension top down. Be careful when weaving in the top crosses not to twist the string. Weaving by tight strings on the outside of the frame or tensioned mains near the grommet will also twist the string. If you weave in the top crosses before tensioning the outside mains it helps that. When weaving your crosses always weave one ahead and pull through enough so you only have a loop large enough to tension your cross. Leaving the tag end of the string up off the floor causes more twisting with you pull the string through a hard weave on the mains.
