    Great job TW

    This will help out a lot of new stringers as other Youtube videos don't fully cover it.

    When my racquet states:

    Mains skip: 8T,10T,8H,10H
    T- Throat (Bottom of the frame)
    H- Hoop (Top of the frame)
    8- Eighth hole
    10- Tenth hole

    Am I correct?

    Yes but H is Head (I think,) and the grommets count from the center out in both directions from the Head and throat.

    i'll admit it was a lot better idea than the speed stringing video. I like it tw, no need to nitpick on the double pull on the first 2 crosses guys. Probably a good idea for beginners anyways since they often do the knot incorrectly and pull the starting knot through.

    Thank God. This video just came up right as a friend of my dad's gave us an ancient Alpha stringing machine. It's a drop weight but I'm still thrilled to get it.

    Yes, it's basically telling you those holes 8 and 10 at the Throat and 8 and 10 at the Head are crosses.

    Andy said in the video that if a racquet has 8 eight holes, you're supposed to string at the top.

    I meant if the crosses would be strung first.

    i thought the speed string one was pretty neat to watch. i think a lot of us fail to realize that despite all teh neagative connotation, it actually takes a WHOLe TON of skill and practice to even achieve that speed. just try it and see how close you get.

    As English is my fifth language, I am wondering what has necessitated the use of a double, apostrophe separated s in the title? ;)

    That's pretty close to what I do with my Neos 1k except I use Yusuki to start the mains, I don't double pull the first cross, and I don't leave the big loops when stringing crosses but rather I weave several ahead. Different strokes...

    Good video, thanks Andy and TW.
