    I think it may be legal to string this way....

    "According to the Rules of Tennis, "the hitting surface of the racket shall be flat and consist of a pattern of crossed strings connected to a frame and alternately interlaced or bonded where they cross" (rule 4a). This tends to limit the movement between strings and, thus, the spin imparted to the ball."

    The string bed is flat and the mains and crosses are alternately interlaced and are connected to the frame.

    ....but talk about shared holes!

    BTW, what tension did you string and how does it play?

    thou must be very fond of 12-string guitars

    if U like dense string in the middle, look for a HEAD prestige (LM or FXP eg.) their middle mains are so densely packed.

    you must have a lot of time on your hands to waste your time doing that. must also take a few extra feet of string per job huh?

    The rules also state that the string bed be (relatively) uniform, and in particular no less dense in the middle.

    I think this one would be up for interpretation.

    I think you would have to string the entire racquet this way for it to be legal, even then you might get called out by a tourney ref.
