    Can anyone top these for widest and narrowest stringing patterns?

    Left: Snauwaert Hi-Ten 25 (12x13)
    Right: Pro Kennex Micro-System (22x30)

    I believe the Hi-Ten 25 is the most sparse string pattern for a production racket. I have played some 4x4 and 6x6 pattens just for hitting practice. Some of the early 1900 rackets had very dense string patterns including triple double mains and crosses with tremlings.

    Great job on showing this combo !

    I know this is really old school stringing, but still a very unusual tight pattern. Imagine doing this today....

    My friend used the PK back in the 90s and said it was awesome.

    How does it hit?

    Here is another old school stringing pattern courtesy Siegfried Kueblers book of Tennis Rackets page 26

    double strung crosses and mains noting that the one I previously posted was only double in the crosses they were looped as well.

    I will throw this in because I found the pic.

    Kuebler Phillips Moore with Spaghetti stringing format. Much harder than the small head woodies I have seen.
