    So I think my racquet is 16X18 instead of the 16X19 like its supp to be...I just tried stringing it and its all messed up. The holes are very close or very far...i bought this racquet like at least a month ago and I dont have the receipt anymore. Is there anything I can do to get my money back or anything? :( Its so frustrating, any help would be appreciated

    And why would you think that? Did you count them more than once? A nice pic would help too.

    mine looks like your racquet, except for the fact that my sting job is different which makes it more "normal"

    i don't know..

    mate...looks like u've made a mistake on ur main..if u look at ur 1st pic, top hoop, 2nd main to the left of ur knot...that one is meant to be for cross, so is the 10th string to the right of the knot..that's also meant to be for ur cross (hence the one before and after is for ur main), and because of that...it's thrown the rest of ur pattern out of place I think...(i'm just on my way to go to work..dont have a lot of time to look at it..but i think that'll probably fix the problem)

    You misstrung, you have an open grommet at the bottom(should not happen). Either you skipped were u weren't supposed to or you didn't skip were you were supposed too. You are going to have to cut out follow a stringing guide and be more careful next time

    Check your starting main

    Last two posters are spot on. You probably started at the wrong main for your center. :cry: Hush. Been there :cry:

    Tie off Mains at 6T

    Start Crosses at top of 7H

    Dude... you mis-strung... starting with the mains and then you compounded it with missing the crosses. This is one of the easiest frames in the world to string... are you new to stringing?
