    i strung my dads wilson hyper hammer 6.6 with rollers (yellow) and i did a hybrid string job. th tie off for 2 piece says 10t i think, anyways, at the tie off point is very close to the cross at that point, right now the knot is sitting right ontop of the cross, im thinkin this will cause a premature break in the string, anyone have experience with this problem?

    I've never had problems with one breaking, but I wish some Wilson Engineer would actually look at a racket when he decides which holes to make tieoffs. Quit putting the tieoff for the last cross 1/3 of the way up the racket.

    I agree, Steve. I hate it when the tieoff is so tight against another string. I've changed the tie off on a couple of frames by opening up a grommet. Made life easier.
