    After stringing up a racket, but found the tension to be loose or slack can you go back untie the last knot and re tighten or up the tension on it and tie it off again?
    Just asking......

    Only if it's solely on that LAST cross that you found the tension to be too short.

    Tugging on the last cross won't change the tension of any strings beyond, perhaps, the cross next to it or the one next to that.

    Mike, would you clamp one of the crosses first, then untie, etc...? (if this HAD to be done) :)

    I wouldn't, no. I would never untie, for any reason that I can think of at the moment.

    And good luck trying to tie it again! There won't be much to work with.
